Sony unveils 10-18mm, 16-50mm power zoom and 35mm F1.8 for NEX E-mount

Photokina is here and Sony already surprise us with a bunch of announcement. First, let's take a look on new lenses offered by Sony for the NEX E-mount.

The new SEL35F18 lens is a wide aperture 35mm focal length model with a bright maximum aperture of f/1.8. It has built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization.

The new SELP1650 lens is an extremely light, compact 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 powered zoom model that measures only 29.9 mm thick (when fully retracted) and contains built-in Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization for clearer handheld images. Additionally, it features a dual-function ring that controls both power zoom and manual focus. A smooth power zoom dial makes the lens particularly useful for shooting video.

The new SEL1018 lens is a super-wide angle zoom with a maximum aperture of f/4.0 across its range of 10-18mm and built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization.

The SELP1650 power zoom lens will be sold separately in January for about $350 (Approx RM1050), and the SEL35F18 prime and SEL1018 wide angle lenses will be available this November for about $450 (Approx RM1350) and $850 (approx RM2550), respectively.
