Yes. It's an E mount lens - there's no reason it shouldn't.

Sony site had mentioned the compatibility for these lens to only new nex bodies like nex 5r, nex f3 and nex 6. So I want to clarify. Thanks for the clarification.

These new E lenses support Hybrid AF, on top of CDAF. Only Nex-5R and Nex-6 have Hybrid AF capability. All other Nex cameras will use CDAF. These new E lenses do work in CDAF mode, with all Nex cameras (included Nex-5R and Nex-6).

In terms of lens profiles, there is still unclarity as to whether the correction profiles will be loaded from the lens into the camera or not. I assume that this is the case.
