Sony NEX Lens Lineup - One Man's Dreams

Amin Sabet

If you could determine Sony's E-Mount (NEX) lens roadmap for the next five years, what would it look like?

Here's one take by Canadian photographer, Chris Kroeger:

Above, from left to right: 12mm f/5.6 rectilinear, Zeiss 14mm f/2 rectilinear (mislabeled "18mm"), 16mm f/2.8, 18mm f/2.8, Zeiss 24mm f/ 1.8, 30mm f/2, 50mm f/2.8 (collapsed), 50mm f/2.8 (expanded), 50mm f/1.8 OSS, Zeiss 60mm f/2, 70mm f/2.8 OSS (collapsed), 70mm f/2.8 OSS (expanded), 85mm f/1.4 OSS, 135mm f/2 OSS.

Above, from left to right: Zeiss 24mm f/1.8, 30mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4, Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 (different optical formula), 50mm f/2.8 (collapsed), 50mm f/1.8 OSS.

According to Chris, all of the above are true representations of how big or small the lens would be. He hasn't yet completed the zoom lineup and while I look forward to seeing that, I would be a very happy camper if the lens above came to pass.

I'd pick the 18mm f/2.8, 30mm f/2, and Zeiss 60mm f/2. What about you?

There are a number of lenses in that fake roadmap that I would like to see ... particularly the 85mm 1.8 or 1.4 OSS and the 35mm 1.8 or 1.4 lenses.

That said, I'm even more interested in the details surrounding the real Sony lens roadmap for the E-mount. Sony's roadmap says there will be a "high performance standard zoom lens" with "G" branding next year but no details on the focal length range or whether it will be fixed aperture or variable aperture over the zoom range. Also, the "mid telephoto lens" on the roadmap is probably an 85mm 1.8 or 1.4 OSS ... hopefully based around the upcoming 50mm 1.8 OSS which looks like it might be a very sharp yet affordable lens.
