Along with the A55, A33 and A560, Sony also announced the addition of three new ultra-fast pieces of glass that will be added to its already impressive family of more than 30 A-mount lenses; they include: a Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 24mm f/2 ZA SSM, a DT 35mm f/1.8 SAM, and an 85mm f/2.8 SAM .

Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 24mm f/2 ZA SSM 

** The 24mm (36mm APS-c sensor equivalent) is built for speed and durability. It features an all-metal polished barrel and features Zeiss’ Distagon design. It’s capable of focusing on objects as close as .19 meters away, and uses a solid nine-blade aperture. Expect this high quality prime to hit store some time in October and cost about $1,250.
