Sony's leaked nex lens roadmap. Appears a wide angle zoom is due this year. Would be good to get a 60 or 100 macro but does look like its happening this year
sonyalpharumors just revealed the Roadmap's 2012 Large Aperture Standard will be a very small 35mm F1.8 (52.5mm equivalent).
NEX lens system should look like this at the end of the year:
10mm Fisheye Converter for 16mm F2.8
11-18mm (2012 release)
12mm Wide Converter for 16mm F2.8
16mm F2.8 Pancake
16-50mm F3.5-5.6 Pancake OSS (2012 release)
18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS LE
18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS
24mm F1.8 Zeiss
30mm F3.5 Macro
35mm F1.8 (2012 release)
50mm F1.8 OSS
55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS
LA-EA1 Lens Adapter Contrast Detect AF with 18 A-Mount SSM, SAM Lenses
LA-EA2 Lens Adapter Phase Detect AF with 34 A-Mount Lenses
11 E-mount lenses in 2½ years = 4.4 lenses per year so far. E-mount roadmap shows 4 more in 2013.
I've noticed Sony has been duplicating A-Mount lenses in E-Mount so my WILD GUESSES on the 2013 are:
G High Performance Standard Zoom: 16-50mm F2.8 (based on A-Mount APS-C 16-50mm F2.8)
Mid Telephoto: 85mm F1.8 or F2.0 (based on A-Mount 85mm F1.4 Zeiss, 85mm F2.8)
Hey... my WILD GUESS on the 11-18mm seems to be happening!
