My bet is that SAR got it wrong about the "G" designation, and they're using the wrong, older roadmap. I'd wager that this zoom lens we're hearing about is simply the "standard zoom" that we see on this year's roadmap, and the G zoom will be coming next year.

There's nothing horribly wrong with the 18-55 and if the 16-50 isn't a G then it's even more pointless.

I'm not saying that it is or isn't pointless, but there is a standard zoom on the lens roadmap, so it looks like Sony may essentially providing a new kit zoom that is a little wider.
