Re: News about the Sony G zoom for NEX?

They'd be the three new Zeiss manufactured primes which were announced a year ago and should be out in a couple months. A 12, 32, and 50. You can see them online and they don't count on Sony's roadmap because they're truly third-party ones, made for the X mount too.

The 16-80, if it comes, will probably be Sony licensing and building a Zeiss design with Zeiss overseeing quality control.

My personal bet is on a 16-50 G that's constant 2.8 or 2.8-4 to keep the size and weight down.

I hope we get both this year because a 16-80 Zeiss would be a fantastic daytime workhorse lens. Pad that out with the 35 1.8 and a legacy 50 and I would feel prepared for almost anything.
