Other manufacturers now able to make Sony NEX lenses for free
Sony has released the technology for the E-mount system to allow third party manufacturers to make lenses. This will allow the likes of Tamron, Sigma and Tokina to make optics for the NEX system of cameras, especially has Sony has made the information avasilable for free.
As the third party DSLR lens market is huge, offering cheaper options to the own brand lenses and differing focal lengths and features. With Sony’s E-mount lenses currently standing at three (18-200mm, 18-55mm and 16mm) more versatility would make the system far more attractive.
