Sony has announced two new E-mount lenses for cameras and semi-pro camcorders, a 20 mm f/2.8 ‘pancake’ wide angle lens (model SEL20F28) and 18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS powered tele zoom (model SELP18200).

The 20 mm lens features an ultra-slim design approximately 20 mm from lens front to back, 30 mm equivalent angle of view, excellent contrast, resolution and clarity across the frame for both still image and full HD video shooting, says the company.

Originally offered only as a kit lens for the NEX-VG30 camcorder, the powered telephoto zoom lens is available as a stand-alone lens.

Sony says it’s designed for serious videographers, with whisper-quiet power zoom mechanics, focusing and aperture operation.

This allows for smooth cinematic transitions when adjusting zoom level or manual settings during shooting.

It features a comfortably positioned zoom lever that works with a switch on the lens barrel, allowing zoom speed to be selected in three different steps – from slow, beautiful shifts in perspective to dramatic crash-zoom effects.

Zoom can also be controlled directly from compatible video cameras.

The lens also has built-in Optical SteadyShot to cut the effects of camera shake and minimize camera blur while shooting handheld at slower shutter speeds.

Active Mode further enhances stabilization at the wide end of the 11x zoom range ensuring smooth, stable footage even if the shooter is in motion.

While Sony says the lenses will be available this spring, there are no details as yet on Canadian pricing or availability.
