Sony E-Mount Lens Overview (Full Frame)

I have composed a complete list of all lenses for Sony full frame E-mount cameras (A7 and A9 series). I’ve only included lenses that were designed for the shorter flange distance of E-mount (no adapted DSLR lenses). Also, I intentionally left out cine or other speciality lenses.

Last update: 2018-09-27

The following list is divided in four parts: autofocus lenses made by Sony, autofocus lenses made by a 3rd party, manual lenses with electronic contacts and manual lenses without electronic contacts.
I’ve included the focal range, max. aperture, weight, approximate price and a rough quality rating. The rating is based on a mixture of my own experience/opinion and the common consensus of reviews on the web and mean the following:

+       = beginner lens
++    = average, overall good performance
+++ = premium lens, optically superior

Note: The Tamron and all Zeiss Batis lenses are weather sealed. The Sigma ART lenses are not new designs for Sony E-mount, but have been modified to support the native E-mount protocol. Not covered in this overview: adapters such as the Sigma MC-11 or Metabones allow you to use Canon, Tamron or Sigma lenses with autofocus (although it is slower than with native lenses).

Note: Lenses that are also available for Canon or Nikon DSLRs were not designed for Sony E-mount (just extension tube added to the rear of the lens) and are therefore not listed here. Of course, you can adapt pretty much any lens out there that was designed for 35mm full frame cameras over the past 100 years.
