"I'm with Eric. It'd be good to have options. I don't know how well it would sell - there might just not be a market, given who typically buys a NEX."

Actually I am with Eric too.  If Sony makes an E-mount 16-50 f/2.8 I would likely buy it.  I just don't think if fits into the "vision statement" they have NEX.

They had a perfectly good 18-55 f/3.5-f/5.6 E-mount kit lens.   So did they make a f/2.8 zoom?   No they made the pancake 16-50 f/3.5-5.6.

The one glimmer of hope I see in all this is the A3000.  That is a body that one could comfortably hold a 16-50 f/2.8 on.    If that camera sells well, maybe there will some follow up.
