    Key features:

    -24-75mm equivalent f/3.5-5.6 with OSS (image stabilization)

    4) New 35mm f/1.8 OSS normal lens:

    The new compact kit zoom, ultrawide, and fast normal lens go a long way towards establishing Sony NEX as a complete system. It's good to see that Sony is putting image stabilization in all of their lenses, even the normal and wides.

    Very cool to see the 35/1.8, love the OSS and, can I say, that I am glad to see these new lenses released in black!

    I agree. NEX-6 plus the 35/1.8 OSS is very tempting!

    Forgot to add: SEL35F18 prime and SEL1018 wide angle lenses will be available this November for about $450 and $850, respectively. SELP1650 power zoom will be available for purchase separately in January for about $350.

    They have been very, very busy of late. Rather secretive too. Did anybody see the RX1 coming? LOL

    I haven't been interested in Sony at all. But the NEX-6 might change my mind. The format is now smaller with a kit lens, which is exciting. I'm hoping the lens IQ is better than what Panasonic offered for mFT. Looks really promising.

    Oh, I thought you were announcing the Talknex NEX6 givaway, Amin...



    Well, I've got my eye on that 10-18mm (15-27mm equivalent) f/4 OSS ultrawide zoom (thankfully NOT a power-zoom I assume) - more so than the NEX6 at this point in time.

    Yeah, the wide zoom looks nice. Should be a killer for hand-held video due to OSS and if the quality is okay also a great lens for landscapes. Have to save some money and skip my upgrade to a newer NEX body another year though ...

    Doesn't it also has higher ISO from Nex-7 (25600 vs 16200)? And I think its also 60g lighter than NEX-7...
    And isnt the flash on the Nex-7 integrated/build-in?
