Don't tell me about ISO, as I believe ISO bumping is an anachronism. I'm this close to actually buying an NEX, but then I look at things... I could handle the 18-105 at F/4.... that's quite a good aperture if you look at the long end, but where are your wide and fast wide angle lenses? I want something in the vicinity of a 14-35 or there abouts which would go down to something like F/1.8 but Sony doesn't offer anything here... It's a shame really, the one lens I would use frequently for landscape photog and Sony doesn't have one?

I have reservation for fast zooms....unless they deliver what they claim

There are a number of examples and also there are many reasons why the upcoming FE 70-200 F4 will be good enough

1. faster zooms are much more expensive and heavier, which defeats the purpose of having mirrorless cameras.

2. Many of the older zooms, are not sharp at full opened aperture.

3. Both Nikon / Canon have proven that their 70-200 F4 zoom lenses are sharper than their 70-200 F2.8 siblings at the time of launch.
