After a three-year-long wait, it looks like Sony might finally be releasing some new lenses for its range of APS-C cameras. Sony hasn’t launched a new crop sensor lens since 2019 so it’s about time its lens line-up had a bit of a refresher. 

The last APS-C lens Sony announced was the Sony E 16-55mm f/2.8 designed to be used with Sony’s crop sensor cameras such as the Sony A6600 or the Sony ZV-E10. Since 2019, it seems that Sony has definitely been focusing on its full-frame range having released the Sony A7R IV, the Sony A7S III and the Sony A7 IV as well as a bunch of top-end full-frame lenses.
