Sony FE Lenses – The Ultimate List

Sony FE E Mount Native Lens List

Over the last year there have been a lot of new Sony E-mount lenses and their lineup continues to grow. FE or Full Frame E-Mount lenses are something that Sony seems to take very serious and if you’re an owner of a Sony A7II, A7rII or A7sII you are very fortunate.

Since there seems to be a new lens every few months, I’ve decided to keep a consolidated e-mount lens guide of all available native full-frame Sony E-mount lenses that I find. I’ve also decided not to post this list or any of my lens guides in alphabetical order. I try to let the cream rise to the top.

I also keep a list of all the available APS-C E-Mount lenses designed specifically for APS-C. You can see that on my APS-C E-Mount Lens List.

 

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 lenses for the full frame e-mount cameras. 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 hopefully more will come on board.

 

 

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.

Sigma E-Mount Lenses


Sigma has put out several full frame e-mount cinema lenses as well as some Super 35mm lenses for the Sony APS-C cameras. It looks like Sigma still hasn’t put out any full frame e-mount lenses yet. I’ll update as soon as they do.

Samyang / Rokinon E-Mount Lenses


These are Samyang lenses built and designed by Samyang for 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 just 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 from element to work with standard matte boxes.

These lenses will also have coverage for full frame shooting and they are 6k ready.

 

Auto Focus

These are the Samyang / Rokinon Autofocus lenses made exclusively for E-Mount. Samyang is also updating the quality of these lenses in a line they call Premium MF. Those should be available soon.

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.

Voigtlander / Cosina E-Mount Primes


Voigtlander recently started developing their lenses in the E-Mount. In terms of quality they are up there with Leica.

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.

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 lenses are still only designed for the Leica M-mount but Voigtlander is now tuning some designs to be used specifically for E-Mount. Enough people are using these now and they are becoming fairly popular so I will include them in this FE lens list. But you will need to buy the adapter which is also listed.

When using lens conversion mounts, always be sure to do some research to make sure the lens still looks great with your camera. I know the 35mm Voigtlander Nokton is great on the Sony A7r as well as the 50mm. But I’m not sure about the other designs. The original 15mm Heliar I and II do not perform well adapted to the Full Frame E-mount. The corners get smeary. But the Heliar 15mm III should be more refined.

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, some are probably junk, but for as cheap as they are, it could be worth a try.

The thing is, 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 lenses for the Sony APS-C lenses.

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

Oshiro Lenses


Although this is not a Chinese company, the lenses are all made in China. My guess is it’s a Chinese company trying to ride itself of the Chinese manufacturing stigma, so they branded themselves as a Japanese company.

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 E-mount. 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 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 Lens Codes


To help understand what all the letters and numbers mean next to the Sony Lenses, I’ve compiled an index of 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
