The highly anticipated Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens will be delayed and expected to be announce in late 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

This lens was previously rumored for the first half of 2020. According to recent rumors the Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM wide-angle zoom lens will be priced around $4,000 – that’s an expensive price tag for a wide angle lens.

However we believe this Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens will offer superb image quality and it can be equipped rear filter, maybe like the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM lens – making it a ideal lens for landscapes, architecture, close up portraits, sports, action, vlogging and much more.

New wide-angle zoom optic will expand the ultra-high-resolution G Master series lens lineup which is optimized for full-frame E-mount cameras.
