Sony where are your fast zoom lenses?

Re: OK

Yes it is perfectly acceptable, I'm looking at a lot of the Sony lenses now, just trying to work out which way to go.

The recently released $700 18-105 G looks good on paper but has lots of pincushion distortion like my LX7 which is corrected in camera, or in the Sony RAW converter. I guess this cannot be helped when you go from wide to long, but overall it offers faster aperture than anything else in that lens range across its zoom. It's also not that expensive really given its fast and it does the job of the 18-55 and the 28-70 lenses. It would pretty much cover everything I need to do, and did I say it's actually pretty fast? I can get a NEX7 body for $900 at the moment or the NEX5R for $399.

What makes the NEX7 body $600 better?
