Hello everyone!

According to mirrorlessrumors there will be a new 16-80mm f3,5-4,5 soon. I was a little bit confused about this lense because I thought Samsung dropped it from the roadmap for a new 16-50mm f2.8.

So I decided to call Samsung directly. Maybe they can say anything about it. And yes, they did! The friendly girl on the telephone confirmed that they have listet a new 16-80mm f3,5-4,5 and 16-50mm f2.8 in their system. Both lenses are expected for 2013.

I think are very good news due to the fact that Sony announced the 18-105 f4 PZ and 16-70 f4 Zeiss.

Which lense do you will prefer? The 16-80mm f3,5-4,5 or the 16-50mm f2.8?

I think the 16-50 sounds more appealing to me, a faster zoom would be nice. The new E mount lenses look great especially that f4 lens but boy $998 is a tough pill to swallow. I'm anxious to see what these new lenses look like and how they perform.
