Nex lenses are huge - are they ?
Aug 20, 2011

Enough has been said about the Nex lenses and their size; pancakes , what the term means and how it works or doesn't , why a lens is a certain size .

Trouble is, in almost every Nex thread there are a number of people, who either didn't get the memo, or ignore basic physics, or are just plain trolling .

Now listen up : the existing E-mount lenses are very small and light for APS-C lenses . That includes the 18-200mm .

Every single lens that is rumoured to be announced on Wednesday seems to be also very compact, given the sensor size .

Now, if you believe Nex lenses are big, by all means get an APS-C DSLR, with even bigger lenses, or a smaller format camera .
Or buy a Samsung.

The Nex has a very small body - I understand how that can make the less experienced believe tiny lenses have to go with it .

And actually, the Nex lenses are tiny and very light.
