The new E PZ 10-20mm f/4 G power-zoom lens is 20% lighter than its predecessor (SEL1018), weighing only 178 grams. Dust- and moisture-resistant, it features internal zoom and focus mechanisms, making it a great choice for vlogging and gimbal-mounted movie shooting. Its optical design consists of 11 elements in eight groups and includes two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements to suppress chromatic aberration plus an ED aspherical element to provide high resolution across the frame. The constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains stable image quality when shooting a movie and delivers manageable shutter speeds in low light levels. This lens has a minimum autofocus of 20 cm with a maximum magnification of 0.14x, while minimum manual focus distance is 0.13 ~ 0.17-meters with a maximum magnification of 0.18x. Two linear motors for focus drive autofocusing and the system can smoothly track subjects when shooting high frame rate movies. Focus breathing and angle-of-view variations are also minimised. This lens accepts 62 mm screw-on filters and has an RRP of AU$1199.

The E 15mm f/1.4 G is a wide-angle lens covering the 35mm full-frame equivalent focal length of 22.5 mm. Weighing just 219 grams and only 69.5 mm in length it is dust- and moisture-resistant, making it ideal for location work when shooting landscapes, architecture and starry skies as well as indoor scenes. Its optical design comprises 13 elements in 12 groups and includes three aspherical elements, one ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element and one Super ED glass element to compensate for distortion, suppress chromatic aberration and deliver sharpness across the frame. Internal focusing is driven by two advanced linear motors and Sony’s lens technology reduces focus breathing and angle-of-view variations for smooth, stable movies. An aperture ring is provided with a click on/off switch and the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture produces smooth, background bokeh and facilitates low light use. The minimum manual focusing distance is 17 cm with a maximum magnification of 0.15x. A focus hold button and focus mode switch are also provided for extra flexibility. The RRP for the E 15mm f/1.4 G lens is AU$1199.

Encompassing an angle of view of 104 degrees, the E 11mm f/1.8 lens is ideal for interior shots and images that require use of depth of field. Its optical design contains 12 elements in 11 groups and includes three aspherical elements and three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements, which are positioned to compensate for distortion and deliver excellent corner-to-corner resolution even with the aperture wide open. The fast maximum aperture easy to achieve deep background bokeh and close-ups are possible with a minimum focusing distance of 12 cm and maximum magnification of 0.2x. Compact and lightweight, this lens weighs 181 grams and is only 66 mm in diameter and 57.5 mm in length. Two advanced linear motors provide fast, precise, quiet AF and tracking for both stills and video, with reduced focus breathing and angle-of-view variations. Linear Response MF ensures the focus ring responds directly and linearly to subtle controls. This lens also includes a focus hold button and focus mode switch and boasts a dust- and moisture-resistant design. The RRP for the E 11mm f/1.8 lens is AU$849.00.
