Sony Releases Teaser for the FE 16-35mm f/4.0 Lens

Sony Releases Teaser for the FE 16-35mm f/4.0 Lens

Among the biggest complaints about the Sony α7 line is the lack of glass available for the new FE mount. So far they've done a good job producing two semi-fast standard primes (a 35mm f/2.0 and a 55mm f/1.8), and two slow-ish pro-zooms (a 24-70 f/4.0 and a 70-200 f/4.0). Yesterday, Sony Japan released a teaser image for a 16-35mm FE lens. The 16-35mm would round out the "Holy Trinity" of FE lenses, making the α7 line an even more appealing option to people who rely on those focal-lengths — though it would be nice to see them make some f/2.8 zooms, too.
