Thoughts on 20-50 Zoom for E-Mount
I'd rather see quality lenses that don't compromise with size. Yes, they'd be bulky in comparison to the body, but that's what happens when you make the flange distance so small.
Would it be nice to have a small lens that had similar functions to the kit? Yep, but it would have compromises, like you said with the Samsung variant won't have OSS.
I'm holding off on buying any lenses with the NEX system. I have my 7 on preorder and will be using nikon glass: 18-70 f/3.5-4, 50 f/2 AI, tokina 80-200 f/2.8.
Once Sony releases the 50 1.8 I may be interested. Until then, the Zeiss still presents a poor value proposition for me.
