Walk-around lens for NEX?

Re: Primes

If I was a betting man, my money would be on that high-performance standard zoom to be an E-mount version of the A-mount, non-G 16-50mm 2.8. At the very least it's more likely than it being a high-quality long-zoom, which just isn't going to be a priority on a compact system. Boosting performance, aperture, and build quality all require increases in size over the already large 18-200, and at some point you have to figure the advantage over just adapting current high-quality A-mount teles disappears.

16-50 seems like a pretty good walk-around length to me though. SAR seems to think we'll get some new E-mount lenses announced early in the year, so if your heart's set on getting a NEX to walk around with I'd recommend you grab a clearance body-only 5n on the cheap with the Sigma 30mm. That's the combo I like to carry around in my pocket the most.
