We like Sony's full frame Alpha mirrorless A7-II and light-vacuuming A7s cameras, but the downside is a narrow range of full-frame lenses. It's now resolved the problem significantly with four new models, including a walk-around zoom and fast prime from Zeiss. The latter, a Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA auto-focus model, creates "gorgeous" images according to Steve Huff, though at $1,698, it's not for the faint of wallet. The Sony 24-240 f/3.5-6.3 AF zoom, on the other hand, is aimed at tourists with its optical stabilization, weather-sealed design and $1,000 price tag.

Rounding out the list is Sony's FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G lens ($1,110) and the $450 FE 28mm F2 prime. Sony also revealed two new APS-C converters for wide-angle E-mount lenses, and another two (fish-eye and wide-angle) for the new FE 28mm F2 lens. With the new lenses and previous models from Sony and third-party vendors, Sony's nearly filled up its full-frame E-mount dance card. The new zoom lens will hit shelves on March 17th, while the Zeiss lens will go on sale by mid-April. Expect to see the wide angle lens and adapters in May and the macro model by July.
