Im still looking for something fast at a more tele size, for portraits. But these lenses should be very good (and expensive, there is no such thing as a free lunch).

so, altogether five short[ish] primes of [expected] reasonable quality: 12/2.8, 24/1.8, 32/1.8, 50/1.8 & 59/2.8 ? so...

  • ​WHERE are G-class zooms ???
  • WHERE are G-class longer primes?

on a side note, it would be nice to have the new Sigma 35/1.4 AF in E-mount too


  • WHERE are G-class zooms ???
Are we already in 2013? I thought we were still in 2012. The roadmap says 2013, and as you know (I know you are not an idiot) and read what I have said, wont happen till late next year.
  • WHERE are G-class longer primes?
Again, I dont consider yourslef an idiot, and Im sure you've seen the roadmap already, so, not 2013. Maybe 2014, 2015? Who knows, until sony updates its roadmap, we dont know, but for sure, we know not 2013.
So, I said, I don't consider you an idiot twice, but I will say, I consider those two questions you made a bit idiotic, specially coming from someone who knows, and has all the information.
