Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens Coming in late 2022

Here is a good news on the Tamron side. Thirds party lens manufacturer is planning to unveil a Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens by the end of 2022.

The lens will be available for Sony E-mount and use VXD drive to achieve faster AF speed and accuracy. Tamron has received high praise with the introduction of the version II standard zoom lens 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens (Model A063). Since the 28-75mm F2.8 has been remodeled to G2, it seems natural that the 17-28mm F2.8 will also be remodeled to G2.

Tamron has already released the 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III VXD G2 Lens, and it is natural to update the 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lens.

Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Lens Announced

Sony officially announced the new FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II lens, a second-generation zoom lens that is the smallest and lightest F2.8 G Master lens in its lineup. The US price is $2,298, and you can check the pre-order options at B&H Photo / Amazon / Adorama.

A refined take on the fast standard zoom, the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II is not only smaller and lighter than the previous generation, it also features a variety of optical, focusing, and handling upgrades that make this the most well-rounded G Master zoom to date. The lens features an all new optical construction that consists of 20 elements in 15 groups, including five aspherical elements (two of which are high-precision extreme aspherical (XA) elements), two extra-low dispersion (ED) elements and two Super ED elements. Sony has also used its Nano AR Coating II to minimize flare and ghosting in images. Continue reading “Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM II Lens Announced”

Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM Lens to be Announced in 2022

Good news folks, Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM Lens rumored to be Announced in Q3 of 2022. The new bright prime lens will be the next f/1.2 model after the RF 50mm f/1.2L and RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lenses.

It is still unclear whether it will be F1.2 or F1.4, but considering the lineup so far, it seems that the possibility of F1.2 is high. We know that the company filed Canon patents for both models. These Canon lenses were the RF 35mm f/1.2L, 35mm f/1.4L, 28mm f/1.2L and 24mm f/1.2L. Looks like either the f/1.2 or f/1.4 will go in mass production this Summer.

It’s suggested that the lens is already in the “hands of testers and marketing folks and recently appeared in an internal dealer roadmap”.
