Sony Releases Full-Frame FE 50mm F2.8 Macro Lens

Sony has just added a new FE lens to the lineup, this time with a 50mm F2.8 Macro lens. While the 50mm focal length is more typical for everyday photography than macro work, this new lens offers full 1:1 macro capability as well as new controls such as a focus mode switch, focus range limiter, and focus-hold button. Availablity is set for September at a price of $500 which is great for a full frame macro lens. While stabilization is missing, Sony A7RII owners will benefit from the IBIS already built in to that camera. Check out the full press release and more details after the break.

DJI Osmo+ Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer Announced

DJI has issued an update to the existing DJI Osmo (check out our DJI Osmo Review) with a new 3.5x optical and additional 2x digital zoom in 1080p. One of my issues with the Osmo was the 1.5m minimum focus distance making it almost worthless for the selfies and vlogging as advertised. Hopefully this new camera might be the perfect tool going forward. The new price is $650 which is about $80 more than the existing model.

Sony G-Master FE 70-200 F2.8 Gets a Price

It has been a long time since this lens was first announced back in February but we now have a price and preorder options! This lens which I had the chance to check out myself (though we could not take pictures with it) looks and feels like a great quality lens, and similar to the current 70-200 F4 option. Given the awesome quality from the other 85mm F1.4 and 20-70 F2.8 G-master lenses, I am really looking forward to getting my hands on this new beast. Availablity is still up in the air but pre-order are underway and the price is set to a squirm inducing $2599! Hopefully the results can justify the high price.

Unfortunately maximum magnification is only .15x and image stabilization will be left up to the camera body but this still signals a strong lens option in a popular focal length.
