Sony plan to release 20 new lenses for their new Alpha DSLR system


In the statement, which can be found here, Mr. Katsumoto describes how he believes the old Konica Minolta brand and Sony have a lot in common, "Ever since Sony and Konica Minolta began collaborating on a joint digital SLR camera project in July 2005, I have seen many similarities in our corporate cultures. Sony is renowned for its unceasing exploration of new avenues, while Konica Minolta has a long history of developing ground breaking technologies."

"We believe an SLR camera should be a part of a larger culture, encompassing the entire product line of lenses and accessories, and not just the camera body itself. To successfully create this culture, it's not enough to offer a body and two or three lens options, which is why, starting this summer, we will launch more than 20 new lens models over the course of a year."

I am interested in adding the 16-80mm F3.5-4.5 Carl Zeiss lens to my range of lenses. Please let me know when it will be available in Australia and the rrp.

Old "news" - or, to put it bluntly, commercial mumbo-jumbo. The underlying facts are at least six moths old, first published on various rumor sites late april this year.
