Abel­Cine has a new brief post­ing with an overview of lens­es for Sony’s F3 cam­era com­ing out next month. I’m very excit­ed by the pos­si­bil­i­ties of dif­fer­ent glass on this new cam­era as the old Sony EX3 had inter­change­able lens­es but the real­i­ty wasn’t of much use, due to mag­ni­fi­ca­tion fac­tors of up to 5.4X on 35mm lens­es (one of the draw­backs of the small­er 1/2″ sen­sor but great for wildlife/extreme tele­pho­to work). The new Nikon and Canon adap­tors for the F3 still have a slight mag­ni­fi­ca­tion of about 1.5X with full frame lens­es, but I can live with that as it is about the same as using a full-frame lens on a DSLR like the 7D, 60D or T2i.

Con­fused about the mag­ni­fi­ca­tion and sen­sor size? See AbelCine’s Sen­sor Com­par­i­son Chart, too.

Note: the three Sony Prime lens­es (35mm, 50mm, 85mm) look to cost almost $6000, which, if they hold up to the stan­dards of oth­er PL primes, is a pret­ty nice price.
