Effectively, we will see now why the A6400’s back in production, huh? Sony has simply introduced three new APS-C E-Mount lenses to go along with it. First up, there’s the Sony E PZ 10-20mm f/4 G which Sony claims is “the world’s smallest and lightest, ultra-wide angle, fixed f/4 APS-C energy zoom lens” – after all, such claims from Sony often include a caveat or two.

In addition to the zoom there are additionally two new prime lenses, the Sony E 15mm f/1.4 G and the ultra-wide Sony E 11mm f/1.8. This brings Sony’s E-Mount lens lineup depend to a complete of 70 totally different lenses for stills, video and hybrid shooters.

The Sony E PZ 10-20mm f/4 G, Sony says, is the world’s smallest and lightest, ultra-wide angle, fixed aperture f/4 APS-C energy zoom lens. After all, they’re solely taking a look at mirrorless lenses and possibly solely taking a look at E-Mount lenses. So, the declare is sort of most likely true bearing that in thoughts. It has a minimal focus distance of solely 20cm and options two extra-low dispersion glass components to “successfully subdue” chromatic aberration. An ED aspherical ingredient additionally provides to reinforce decision and sharpness.

It’s 20% lighter than its Sony 10-18mm f/4 OSS predecessor and whereas this one does supply energy zoom, it doesn’t have optical picture stabilisation, which is certainly going to be a deal breaker for some, particularly sure video shooters, like vloggers – a lens for which that is ideally suited – with cameras just like the A6400 that don’t have IBIS. Seems to be such as you’ll need to get that A6600 as a substitute.

Three aspherical components within the optical design of the Sony E 15mm f/1.4 G lens, Sony says, “compensate for distortion and ship wonderful corner-to-corner decision” regardless of the broad angle of view.

It additionally helps the main target respiration compensation characteristic present in a few of Sony’s more moderen mirrorless cameras – which is odd, as a result of none of these appropriate cameras are APS-C fashions. Possibly there’s one thing new on the way in which?

The least costly of at this time’s new lens introductions is the Sony E 11mm f/1.8, priced at solely $548. Sony says that it’s designed particularly for vlogging, though personally I feel it’s a bit broad and because it accommodates no picture stabilisation, once more, you’ll wish to use a stabilised physique just like the A6600. It minimal focus distance is a mere 12cm and gives a 0.2x magnification ratio for some fairly wild wanting close-ups.
