Sony is considered as the oldest manufacturer of compact system camera ranges and has an excellent variety of E-mount lens. Sony launched its E-mount Lens in 2010, but gradually by 2015 they have introduced nearly 15 E-mount lenses, moreover most of these lenses have advanced into second generations as well. For instance, the original E 18-55 mm kit lens has now evolved into a smaller and lighter version and provides electronic control over zoom, therefore if you are planning to buy Sony E-mount lenses make sure you have gone through all the information available regarding that specific model of lens.

Sony-E mount lenses are targeted to attract the major consumer market however there are few specified lenses available in the market too. A Sony E-mount lens can be a bit expensive if you move to the prime type of lenses such as 30mm f/3.5 lens.  Sone lenses have an incredibly wonderful standard but some might have a decreased field of view however they will cover most of the frame from the center that might lead to an excellent image quality.

Third Party Options:

Sony E-mount lens has caused many manufacturers to join the party such as Sigma and Tamron both have third party options. Sigma manufacturers produce 19mm-30mm lens equipped with f/2.8 aperture. Before going for a third party option make sure you research on the lens under-consideration.

Mount Adapters:

The mount adapters manufactured for Sony E-lenses is also equipped with an electronic connection that controls the aperture. An added surprise for purchasers of Sony E-mount lenses is the pellicle mirror, a pellicle mirror is a thin, transparent mirror that splits the beans and reduces the intensity of light. If you are planning to buy a Sony E-mount lens, then you will also have a range of third party adapters to choose from.
