It's hard to believe that they're 10 years old, but Sony's finally updating two of its most important lenses.
The Vario-Sonnar T* 16-35mm f2.8 SSM II and 24-70mm f2.8 II remain essentially the same but Sony incorporates more recent coatings -- coating technology has change a lot in the last decade -- for better clarity and less ghosting. Sony also claims significantly better subject tracking.
Both are scheduled to ship in June. The 16-35mm will cost $2,250 (directly converted, £1,496 and AU$2,898) and the 24-70mm $2,100 (£1,462, AU$2,833). Hopefully, there will be some bargains on the old models, which are still quite good.
