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

Those four lenses (E24, E20, E1650, E35) make your Nex-6 a do-all camera. Only two lenses to consider are a wide (E1018) and long (E85, when announced). Sure, long reach (200mm) is not included, but do you shoot much like that? If so, the E18200 is a great add-on.

And there is the superb Sigma 60mm f/2.8 ... if you don't need really shallow DOF then it is a very decent portrait lens. Almost too sharp even at f/2.8. Got mine for 160 Euros.

Apparently not a very popular lens. Maybe because of the "slow" aperture?

I wonder where this "need" for fast portrait lenses comes from and who actually uses them ... you don't see too many "shallow DOF" portraits in this forum...
