San Diego - Sony said Tuesday that it will allow third parties access to specifications for the E-mount lens system employed by its NEX series of mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.

The move, which will not ask any fee for privilege, will enable third parties to offer lenses for the cameras, giving purchasers a wider selection of optics and lens price points to outfit their cameras.

The move should open the doors to third-party equipment makers such as Sigma, Tamron, Zeiss and others to soon deliver E-mount glass for the NEX-3, NEX-5 and NEX-10 cameras and any other E-Mount cameras coming in the future. No specific brands or models have been announced to date, however.
