Sony's A7 range just became more of a proper system

Good as the quartet of Sony A7 cameras is, the A7, A7r, A7s and A7II have always lacked a bit of tender loving care in the lens department. I've said many times that the Fuji X System offers a better range of optics than the hitherto meagre fare from Sony.

That is now about to change as Sony introduces three new fast primes and a wide-to-long zoom. The new models are relatively large, as inevitable with modern full-frame auto-focus designs, and serve to emphasise the relative compactness of the APS-C system as espoused by Fuji. But full-frame addicts will love the added capabilities the new optics bring to the A7 range.

The three FE primes consist of a very fast f/1.4 35mm Zeiss Distagon, a 28mm f/2 and a stabilised 90mm f/2,8 macro. Providing more zoom muscle is a 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 beast featuring stabilisation.  In addition, Sony has added two fisheye converters for the new 28mm f/2.
