Lens manufacturer Viltrox looks set to announce a trio of exciting new optics on Christmas Day: 24mm, 35mm and 50mm prime lenses for the Sony E Mount, with a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture. 

The Viltrox AF 24mm f/1.8 FE, Viltrox AF 35mm f/1.8 FE and Viltrox AF 50mm f/1.8 FE lenses will apparently be launched on 25 December. The trifecta of new primes should provide an alternative to the three faster f/1.4 lenses – the Viltrox AF 23mm f/1.4, Viltrox AF 33mm f/1.4 and Viltrox AF 56mm f/1.4 – which have finally made it to market for Canon and Sony APS-C mirrorless systems.
