At a news conference Thursday, Sony described three of the lenses in some detail--a 24-70mm F/2.8, a 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6 and an 18-250mm F/3.5-6.3. But at its booth, it showed eight new models.
The models are a large-aperture standard zoom, a large-aperture wide-angle zoom, a super-telephoto zoom, a super-telephoto with a fixed focal length, a regular telephoto with a fixed focal length, a wide-angle with a fixed focal length, a regular telephoto zoom and a large-aperture wide-angle with a fixed focal length.
Sony only began selling its first SLR, the Alpha 100, last year. Sony also plans two higher-end SLRs, a model for high-end amateur photographers to arrive this year and a professional-level flagship model to arrive later.
The Japanese company showed both models at the show.
