Re: FE lenses are a kludge.

They are compatible, so what? We all know that. It's still a kludge. Making a lens designed for one mount compatible with another does not change anything. If you listen to this point carefully, it might not go over your head this time.

You are right it is a total kludge and look at the prices on those FE lenses!

Thom Hogan asked if there would be anymore E lenses and the only thing Sony would say is FE lens fit on APS cameras (which Thom took as "no" because if the was "yes" there would be have bee a straight answer).

Here is what some FE lenses look like on APS cameras...so much for small size!

If there is no answer in corporate speak that means no... It's a shame.. NEX had lots of potential, that only leaves Fuji. Both Canon and Nikon only continue to let APS-C exist in order to lock people into buying larger full frame lenses and cameras eventually. So if you want an alternative to Canikon the only answer categorically at this stage is Micro Four Thirds... I really hope Fuji changes this, because there is a lot to like about what Fuji is doing.
