The pages for these three coming-soon Sony compact prime lenses are filled with information and expectations.

Note that these lenses are very similar aside from their focal lengths and corresponding optical formulas. The lens pages differ primarily by the focal length discussion and the comparisons section, and otherwise, reading one page is sufficient.
