Sony FE 14mm f/1.8 GM Lens Announced, Price : $1,598

Sony announced the new  FE 14mm f/1.8 GM wide-angle prime lens. Perfect for landscapes, architecture, astrophotography and more, we found it plenty sharp, even wide-open. It’s also quite fast to focus thanks to twin linear motors.

The lens is surprisingly compact and lightweight: approximately 1/3 the weight of the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art FE ($1,599) (460 vs 1170 grams).

The US price of the lens is $1,598, and the preorders will start on April 21 at 10am ET at B&HPhoto.
