Sony's lens Roadmap - Only map, no road?
Nov 23, 2012

I saw this feb 2012 release from Sony promising lot of NEX lenses.

Right now(without the adapter) there is the 18-55, a couple of primes, a 16-50 collapsible lens + the  SEL18200 + 55-210

I am wondering have there been any updates to the roadmap. The roadmap was talking about 2013. We are almost there, but there has been no concrete announcement from Sony about more lenses.

Being a recent 5N buyer, I feel sony is not doing much for the NEX platform yet. Yes the 16-50 collapsible lens is a welcome step, but sony should work at developing collapsible lenses for longer focal lenghts also. Right now, if you go zoom, it becomes an awkward looking setup with very big lens, and very small body.

Hopefully, sony will announce something to cheer us up before the year is up!
