is the black sony 18-200 considered a new lens & part of the roadmap?

black, 12% lighter, 62mm filter thread (smells like the tamron!) - seems like it's what the "high magnification zoom" Sony planned on releasing this year. So I guess the standard zoom will either be a revised version of the 18-55mm, or just the black kit lens coming off NEX-7.

so that leaves us to a UWA zoom & a large aperture standard prime as the only two actual new specs of lens released for the entire year of 2012. Not that I have the money to spend on new lenses, but only 7 different lenses developed over a span of 3yrs is quite slow given any system, no?
