NEX purchase dilemma - no wide aperture standard zoom?
Mar 1, 2013

Hello all Nex users!

My friend is looking for a compact yet good quality mirrorless camera to complement his Canon 7D kit. I recommended the Nex line as I believe it has the best overall performance. But. There is always a but, right?

We were staggered to notice that there is no wide aperture (f2.8) standard zoom lens available. Is it true? Something like 18-50 mm f2.8 - f4 or so. Due to this my friend is leaning towards the Fuji X-E1.

I have no experience with any mirrorless systems so I only go by with what I have read here on Dpreview. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
