Re: Sony NEX roadmap.

The "G" lens was moved to 2013 in the latest roadmap. There are 4 lenses listed for 2012. Three are as I said above...

Standard zoom -> 16-50mm
Larger aperture standard -> 35mm F/1.8
Wide angle zoom -> 11-18mm zoom

The fourth was mostly the new 18-200.

Also my guess is like last year we won't see the 2012 lenses until early October.

Which is about when I expect most new launches (following photokina). I doubt we will see 11-18 for "wide angle zoom". That is ultra-wide angle zoom range. And update to 18-200 won't be a new high magnification zoom either (unless there is a new 18-250 to replace the old 18-200). More likely in my opinion is 55-300, and 18-135... two zoom lenses and 35/1.8.

As for "G", it eludes me what that lens is meant to be considering Sony has not yet launched a G for APS-C sensor. May be it will be different for E-mount than it has been for A-mount.

From the roadmap, it is hard to tell if it is late 2012 or early 2013, or just 2013...
