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

Just curious if there is any news at all about development by Sony for new lenses on their E mounts? I feel like now that the A7/A&r are out, all lens development will be centered around them.

And I only ask because, while I love my NEX6 and Zeiss 24mm, I'm really looking for a camera system with more lens options. Which is why I've been toying with the idea of selling my NEX6 and possibly moving to an Olympus E-M1. 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.

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

I'm surprised these "lack of aps e-mount lenses" posts continue with the Sony, zeiss, sigma, etc offerings available. The only thing lacking right now is a high quality telephoto.

My other surprise is that so many jumped to full frame with such little lens support so far. What happened to the small form factor and high image quality advantages? People are running into all sorts of problems using legacy lenses so far yet the sell off of NEX cameras and lenses continues. There must be a ton of photogs that didn't get their fill of full frame from SLR film cameras. I think it's a lot easier to shoot the middle ground APS cameras without a lot of sacrifice. Not to mention the expense of upgrading and loss for selling off NEX equipment. New tech concurs all, I guess. I wonder how many think they made a mistake but don't say anything.
