Its not going to happen

No need to hold your breathe for an 18-55mm f/2.8-4. Fuji has one, with stabilisation, for its X-E1 and other cameras (mostly a kit lens for X-E1). It's not significantly bigger than the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SEL, just a proportional amount more all round, needing 58mm filters.

If Fuji can make this lens, no reason to think Sony can't make a kit lens one stop faster than the existing design - and with impressive MTF charts to match Fuji's.


I was talking about a 18-85 F2.8-4.....its not going to happen. The only thing sony can really do is copy fuji's lens....They are not going to make a standard lens that is HUGE. they will not do that....if any one has hopes for even a 16-80 3.5-4.5, its not going to happen. It will be to large. not many people will buy it.

Just because 10 people on here say they would(even though once they see the size they probably wouldnt) doesnt mean that the other 99.9999999999999% of the people of the nex world would....and they wouldnt, it would be just to big.
