    B&H says 7-14 days to release date vs Adorama has from next week to end of April...

    I found dpreview dates which are even later:
    Per dpreview, firmware updates are also coming for the older lenses to speed up the starting times...

    It seems like Asia is going to get all the lenses first. According to Hardwarezone (Singaporean website),

    "With the exception of the SEL24240 Full-frame Zoom Lens which was released yesterday [5 March] at RRP of S$1,369, pricing for the other lenses has yet to be announced, but all the lenses are expected to be available by the end of the month."

    Sony US has the release dates with preorders:

    Sony FE 24-240mm ships on March 15 .
    Zeiss FE 35mm ships on April 12.
    Sony FE 28mm ships on May 2.
    Sony FE 90mm ships on July 5.

    I am sure HK sellers will be selling in the ebay, but usually they inflate the prices initially until the demand slows down. At least we will see some reviews soon...

    24-240 has been released in HK/Japan and some of the first reports and samples:
    http://www.mobile01.com/topicdetail.php?f=254&t=4283284&p=18

    It looks like there is another software update is coming and hopefully the af speed will be faster but reportedly on A7 II:
    and more samples, the bokeh is mostly good, very contrasty. You can check the second set which looks like A7 II full samples, maybe jpg. The last 2 shots are also very good:

    Also 28mm f2 photos at Pantip:
    http://pantip.com/topic/33342872/desktop

    28mm is available thru HK sellers in ebay, but US release date is showing as April 28/May 5... Still I have not seen any reviews on 24-240mm other then samples from a few users, maybe more next week by its US release... Samples from a dpreview post:

    Wow! It looks really good. It is the A7R, so A7/II won't have the type of resolution. I think the 24mm is really a game changer vs the typical 28mm. Ironically, this all in one is also Sony's longest mirror-less lens to date.

    Yeah, that review is pretty encouraging. It would be great to see some more comparisons like that, especially with the 70-200G.

    Very nice zoom range. The image quality isn't bad for such a lens but not acceptable to me. From what I see the corners and edges are a bit too blurry at 24mm and the pics at longer focal lengths don't seem that sharp although a bit hard to judge from the 2000x3000 pixel samples in the Japanese review mentioned before.

    I see. I remembered them not because I'm looking at that lens but because I was interested to see a long lens with OSS and A7r and noticed he was using the new lens. I really can't determine anything except the pictures he posted are a nice mix of close and long shots.

    No hard feelings :). His pictures are nice for sure, I'm just one of those people that wants to have it all (the pixels in this case).
