History of Sony Lenses

Sony first entered the DSLR market in July 2005 when it began a joint venture with Konica Minolta. This joint venture lead to an updated line of Sony DSLR lenses being introduced in to the market. Over the next few years, Sony become one of the fastest growing companies in the DSLR market and as of 2008, became the third largest DSLR Company in the world. In May 2009, Sony introduced its A-mount lens which is one of the best selling Sony lenses in the market.

High quality lenses

Sony has consistently produced high quality lenses over the past few years. The ‘Alpha’ series was designed using some of highest quality mechatronic technologies available. All of these lenses had an in built image stabilisation feature that helped enhance the image quality. Sony’s A-mount lenses focused a lot on colour reproduction and maintain a good level of colour saturation making them ideal for portrait and landscape photography. Sony lenses have taken a lot of their design ideas from the old Minolta lenses and have simply upgraded the features in their new lenses.
