Re: Buying an emount f/2.8 zoom?

Depends on how small it is and how much they wanted for it. So realistically probably not. I would not want something like the Canon 17-50 2.8 hanging off my NEX, that seems pointless.

I'd rather a good fast wide prime actually. If someone made a 20-24 f/1.4-2.0 with AF for <$600 I would do it. There's other avenues to the same FOV/speed as well, if weight isn't an issue. A cheap FX zoom + Lens Turbo would equate to something like a 2.0-2.5 zoom in some cases. So there are different ways to do it.
