Any talk of new lenses or a roadmap at all for E-Mount?

Re: If the Zeiss 16-70mm was f2.8 I'd be happy as a clam

I'd really rather stick with the Sony but it's been awhile since E mount has seen a new lens and it's a little worrisome.

What is "awhile" to you? Did the 18-105 not just come out like a month ago, and the Zeiss 50 Macro just announced as available?

Should I hang in there with the Sony or should I switch to the Olympus E-M1 and 12-40mm Pro?

Does the 12-40 do something that the SZ 16-70 doesn't? What other lenses are you looking for?

If I was in the market for the best collection of top-notch zooms along with overall great IQ, I might look at Fuji, not M4/3s.

It would be my one and only zoom lens and I'd be perfectly happy. But there's no f2.8 zooms like what Olympus has with their 12-40mm pro lens.

Like I said, I really don't want to give up my little NEX6 as it's chock full of potential, but only if there's a dedicated lens lineup to take advantage of it

But you are looking at f/2.8 on a m43 camera with a smaller sensor vs f/4 (with wider range) on APSc. If sensor size doesn't matter to you, you should simply choose the smaller one.
