Sony puts out more new lenses than the other guys. But the other guys update their old lenses more often.

Interesting list, thanks for posting it.

But I'm curious — sincerely — what is an "updated" lens? Does this mean that the camera got a firmware update that added some new functionality to an old lens? Or something else?


I think you can chalk up his post to just being outdated.  Since then, Canon has released a 24/28 F/2.8 IS, a 35 F/2 IS, a new 200-400, a 24-70 F/4 IS, etc.
