According to latest rumors, Sony is rumored to announce a new FE 16mm f/1.8 GM lens in early 2021.
We expect this wide-angle prime lens to be announced at major fairs at the beginning of 2021, although the announcement date is not yet clear.
Sony FE 16mm f/1.8 GM lens will be fastest 16mm lens in the world. It will be “about the same size and build quality” as the FE 24mm f/1.4 GM lens, so expect a large, well-built lens with lots of glass and a hefty price tag.
G Master lenses are designed and built to meet the rigorous requirements of professionals both in the field and in the studio. They are heavily weather sealed for use outdoors, they have the best available lens coatings to minimize flare and maximize contrast, and they are build using the latest materials to minimize weight despite the often complex optical formula.
Currently the widest angle and fastest lens for Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras is 20mm f/1.8 G and the widest f/1.8 is the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 FE. The new Sony FE 16mm f/1.8 GM lens is said to be the same size and build quality as the 24mm f/1.4 GM.
