Sony Alpha lenses

PMA 2018 Report

During the PMA, Sony Japan announced several new lenses; that is to say, they have announced the developments. It strikes us that hardly any announcements, if even any at all, were made about the Sony Alpha system during PMA 2009. A large showcase received a prominent place, showcasing the available lenses for the Alpha. Among them, we find the new concept lenses, which were announced rather inconspicuously by Sony Japan during the past week. It is not even likely that these concept models will actually appear on the market as Sony lenses. It's more about showing the possibilities of the Alpha system.

On a prominent spot in the showcase, a silver-colored telephoto lens is showcased, of which it is unclear what focal length it provides or what bright it features. On both sides of this lens, several, more or less logical Alpha lenses are placed. We noticed the 50 mm f/1.8, DT 55-200 mm f/4-5.8, 30 mm f/2.8 Macro, DT 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6, and the bright 28-75 mm f/2.8 lenses. Perhaps the coming Photo Imaging Expo in Japan, which will be held from 26-29 March 2009, will bring some more news about the new Sony Alpha lenses.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
