Hey buddy, I'm surprise to see you here ( my ex-canon friend ). Ironic post, I just bought my 1st m4/3 camera last week. Anyhow, I like NEX-3/5/7, but I am still disappointed with Sony on dragging its feet in releasing pancakes lens )

I pretty much dismissed NEX because of it until Sigma 30mm f/2.8 and Sigma 19mm f/2.8 makes the platform worthy again. NEX are great cameras, but it is STARVING for cheaper and sharper lens.

If Sigma or Sony ever release either a:

  • 28mm f/1.8 lens for $199

  • 30mm f/2 "pancake" ( see samsung nx 30mm f/2 )

I'll sell both canon and m4/3 for a NEX platform. Honestly, I don't understand sony, and why they're so slow in releasing new lens. Since sony owns 11% of Tamron, couldn't sony just give tamron a call as well?
