Sony FE Lenses – The Ultimate List

Sony E Mount Lens List - Every Sony Full Frame E-Mount Lens

An updated list of every lens available for the Sony full frame E-Mount system. Including all the Sony lenses as well as third-party lenses. 

Cameras for this list include the Sony A7, A7r, A7s, A7II, A7rII, A7sII and the new A9. These lenses will also work on Sony APS-C cameras as well.

I’ve also compiled a complete list of Sony APS-C lenses.

 

Please let me know if I’m missing anything!

 


Native Full Frame Sony E-Mount Lens List – For A7, A7II, A7r, A7rII, A7s and A7sII E-Mount Cameras


There are several brands now making Sony full frame lenses. There are the Sony lenses, produced and developed by Sony themselves. Then there is the Sony Zeiss partnership. Sony works with Zeiss designs and quality with Zeiss branding built by Sony. Then there are the Carl Zeiss lenses designed and produced by Zeiss for Sony E-Mount. Like the Loxia and Batis lenses.

A few other manufacturers like Mitakon and Samyang also makes some good bargain lenses, Voigtlander has started producing E-Mount lenses as well and there are also now several great Chinese made lenses.

 

Sony Full Frame E-Mount Lenses


This is a mix of Sony lenses built and designed by Sony, and Zeiss designs built by Sony using Zeiss coatings. All lenses in this list have electronic aperture controls and autofocus.

The Sony G lenses are considered their best lenses, similar to Canon L lenses.

Zeiss E-Mount Primes


These are lenses built and designed by Zeiss specifically for Sony E-Mount cameras. The T* is considered Zeiss premium lens coating.

Zeiss continues to roll out some really nice autofocus lenses but also their manual lenses are very well built and the Zeiss 50mm Loxia is considered one of the sharpest lenses out there for the Sony E-Mount system.

Sony Lens Codes

If you’re wondering what all those numbers and letters on Sony lenses mean, here is a quick guide to Sony lens codes.

OSS – Optical Steady Shot. Or IS if you’re a Canon user.

T* – This is the code for Zeiss’ unmatched multi-layer lens coating. Often referred to as T coating. If you’re a Canon shooter this would be like their L lenses.

ZA – Mean Zeiss Alpha. Lenses by Zeiss for the Alpha cameras. Or E-Mount cameras.

G – This is the code by Sony to distinguish top quality in their lenses. Like the Zeiss T* or the Canon L. It basically means it’s good.

FE – Full Frame E mount

 

 

Sigma E-Mount Lenses


Sigma has this really cool line up of cinema Sony full frame lenses for the E-Mount. Sigma lenses are considered to be decent quality at a decent price. Although their ART lenses for the A-Mount are really nice.

There continues to be rumors about some regular Sigma full frame lenses, but we’ve yet to see anything come to fruition.

Sigma also has some Super 35mm lenses for the Sony APS-C cameras

Samyang / Rokinon E-Mount Lenses


These are Samyang lenses built and designed by Samyang (a Korean company) for Sony full frame Sony E-Mount cameras. Samyang also develops lenses under the name Rokinon and Bower. If you order a Rokinon lens, it will be the same as a Samyang lens but they are branded differently.

 

Rokinon has recently released a new line of cinema lenses for the Sony E Mount system called XEEN. These will go great with the Sony A7r II since it can shoot 4k internal, full frame or APS-C super 35mm crop.

All XEEN lenses have an 11-blade diaphragm and a unified 114mm front element to work with standard matte boxes.

These lenses will also 6k ready, although the idea of lenses being “ready” for a certain resolution is just marketing nonsense. 

 

Auto Focus

These are the Samyang / Rokinon Autofocus Sony full frame lenses. Samyang is also updating the quality of these lenses in a line they call Premium MF. Those should be available some day.

Some of the lenses here are really nice alternatives to some of the other lenses out there. For example the Samyang 35mm f2.8 is a better buy over the Zeiss 35mm f2.8. I’ve shot with the Ziess 35mm f2.8 since day one, and feel the Samyang is much more practical.

That’s what you get with Samyang, fast, cheap lenses that do the job. If you want to get the feel of a certain focal length without breaking the bank, Samyang lenses are great.

Full Manual

The Samyang manual lenses are some of my favorite cheap lenses. I’ve had the 14mm for years and it was always with me as I was learning landscape photography.

Lately Samyang has been upgrading the quality and design for the E-Mount cameras, however, they’ve been seeing a lot of competition from Chinese companies.

Tokina


Tokina is a Japanese company that has started making a few e-mount lenses. The Firin 20mm f2 is a fairly new non-cinema lens that’s been turning heads. It’s an all metal lens with a brush finish. I don’t own any Tokina lenses but everyone I’ve known that owns them swears by them.

Fujifilm Cinema Lenses


Fujifilm has started making some Cine lenses for the E-Mount but also for the Fujifilm X-Mount. Fijifilm has been known for their legendary lenses. It’s nice to see them taking a consumer approach to the cine lenses.

These lenses also only cover super 35mm. So you would need to crop down your full frame cameras like the Sony A7rII  to super 35mm to take advantage of these lenses.

SLR Magic


SLR Magic is a Hong Kong company has been around a few years now. They’ve taken an interesting approach to lenses design by targeting the low budget indi filmmakers and are known for their Anamorphic lenses and adapters.

They now make some decent Sony E-Mount cinema lenses with some nice controls and specs. If you’re looking for low budget cinema lenses, SLR Magic is probably your best option.

Voigtlander / Cosina E-Mount Primes


Voigtlander recently started developing their lenses in for full frame E-Mount body cameras. In terms of quality they are up there with Leica. I would say they are just below Leica, but above Zeiss.

The Voigtlander 35mm f1.7 is my favorite lens for my Sony A7rII. I have the Leica Mount version.

The Voigtlander E-Mount lenses will be the same design as the M-Mount lenses except the lens will be able to electronically communicate with the camera. This means you’ll get focus zoom assist when manually focusing, and you’ll get the aperture recorded in your EXIF data.

Any Voigtlander lens should be able to last you a lifetime if you take care of it.

I personally buy the M-mount Voigtlander lenses so I can easily adapt them to other cameras, but I own a lot of Fujifilm cameras.

Voigtlander / Cosina M-Mount Primes


These are the Leica M-mount lenses but Voigtlander. I usually buy these instead of the E-Mount specific lenses so I can use them on different systems. However, you’ll lose your EXIF data.

To use these lenses you will need to use an adapter. I use the Voigtlander adapter.

When using lens conversion mounts, always be sure to do some research to make sure the lens still looks great with your camera.

Voigtlander has redesigned a lot of their lenses to perform better with digital sensors. Like the Heliar 15mm III is much better for digital cameras than the II so keep an eye out for those.

Chinese Lenses


There are so many Chinese rip-off lenses out there now I decided to give Chinese lenses their own category. Some are actually good, some are just only ok, and some are probably junk. For as cheap as they are they could be worth a try.

Lens design from around 35mm and higher was pretty much perfected a few decades ago and the only thing that gets better is coatings and construction. So when it comes to optical IQ, some of these cheap lenses will surprise you.

 

Mitakon Zhongyi


This is one of the more interesting Chinese lens companies and are known for their crazy fast lenses. They also make some amazing Sony APS-C lenses.

They have two version so the 50mm Speedmaster lens, it was updated in 2015 or 2016 and is supposedly a little better, also more expensive.

Mitakon says they make their lenses the Japanese way, using Japanese machinery.

There are smart and artistic people in China that also care about quality and are capable of amazing things, Mitakon Zhongyi are those people.

Oshiro Lenses


Although Oshiro is a Japanese company, the lenses are all made in China so I put them in the Chinese company section.

Some of these Oshiro lenses aren’t actually made for E-Mount but they ship with an all metal mount. Honestly, you’re probably better off buying vintage M42 mount lenses and adapting them. But these are cheap enough that they could be a fun experiment. I just don’t know enough about Oshiro to have any opinion on them.

Lensbaby E-Mount Lenses


Lensbaby is one of the very few American companies that makes lenses.

Lensbaby has a few fun lenses for the the Sony full frame e-mount system. While you won’t to get anything optically spectacular with these lenses in terms of IQ, that’s not the point, these lenses are simply fun to use and they create some very unique effects.

The Velvet and Twist lenses work on their own. For the Edge and Sweet lenses you’ll need to mount them to a Composer Pro or Composer Pro II. If you already have one of these, you can order just the optics.

Sony E-Mount Adapters


There are too many full frame E-Mount lens adapters to count now; so I’ll start by listing what I’ve used and what others are finding useful.

I love the metabones adapters but they are a little pricey. For a fraction of the price the Novoflex adapter works perfectly fine. That’s actually what I’m using right now because my metabones adapter broke and I just didn’t see any benefit of spending the extra money on a new one.

I also use the Voigtlander for my Leica lenses. It’s a very solid adapter. The close focus version just means it telescopes slightly.

Sony Full Frame Lenses | Conclusions


When I started this list years ago there were hardly any choices. Now there are almost too many lenses to list.

I try to list everything I find that is easy to buy. There are some lenses out there that cannot be bought through major retailers so I don’t bother listing them to help protect people from getting bad deals.

 

Don’t forget to check out the Sony APS-C Lenses. There are some great options there as well for APS-C cameras and the list continues to grow.
