SEL-18200PZ: Sony E PZ 3.5-6.3/18-200mm OSS

I don't know about you, but these seem like quite a number of lenses for a brand new, from ground up camera system that launched just over two years ago.

We also know that there is a possibly constant aperture Sony G Zoom Lens coming sometime in 2013 as well. I look forward to that.

I personally would like to see a 75/80/85/90mm f/2 lens, especially the 85 f/2 lens.

Now, I present you with two questions:

1. What other lenses would you NEED? What angle of views are VITAL to your style pf photography?

2. What lenses would you realistically (not a 25mm f/1 pancake) would you WANT?
