Dream Nex lens lineup
Sep 1, 2011

I know everyone is caught up in the nex-7/5n and 24mm Zeiss right now but I would like to ask about the future of the nex lens prime line up and as sony has yet to give us an updated roadmap thought I would make my own mockups. If all the lens below were made I would bet it would take 5+ years for them all to come out.

(Left to right 12mm 5.6 rectilinear , 14mm 2 rectilinear, 16mm 2.8, 18mm 2.8, 24mm 1.8, 30mm 2, 50mm 2.8 (collapsed) then expanded, 50mm 1.8 oss, 60mm 2, 70mm 2.8 oss, 85mm 1.4 oss, 135mm 2 oss.)

I tried to accommodate ever consumer group.
$800+ 3 Zeiss lens 18, 24, 60.
4 consumer grade/price $250-400 16, 18, 30, 50 1.8, 85mm 2.8 (shown as 1.4).
3 specialty small prime lens $500-800 12, 50 2.8, 70.
2 telephoto lens 85mm (I would change to 2.8) and 135mm 2

What lens do u think are missing? (I know there is no macro lens)

What lens would you buy that are shown? (Put in your subject line (I would go with the 12, 30, 70))
Are there any lens you question why they would be made at all?

(the 18, 30, 50, 60, 70, 85 and 135 are true demos of how big/small the lens could be. Also the 1st Zeiss in the line is labeled wrong. 18 instead of 14)
