Eight New NEX Lenses Planned
Here is the new NEX E-mount lens roadmap by Sony. It shows that there are eight new lenses coming within two years. There will be four new E-mount lenses in 2012 and four more planned for 2013. The chart above describes each upcoming lens but does not get into specifics. Here is the description and our best guess on focal length and aperture combination based on current Sony Alpha lenses:
- Sony G High Performance Standard Zoom - 16-50mm f/2.8?
- High Magnification Zoom - 18-250mm?
- Standard Zoom - 24-70mm?
- Wide Angle Zoom - 11-18mm?
- Large Aperture Standard Prime - 35mm f/1.8?
- Medium Magnification Zoom - 70-300mm?
- Medium Telephoto Prime - 85mm f/2.8?
- Thin Prime - 28mm f/2.8?
