    Dear all,
    very short question. The fastest zoom we have (e mount) is the
    Sony 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS (I find it around 300 euros). Are there more alternatives?

    The only E-mount alternative is one of the 18-200 models and these are f3.5 - 6.3 so the short answer is that there is no faster alternative within the E-mount system. You would have to go to legacy lenses with adapters to get faster options.

    Sony's E-Mount lens roadmap does promise what is described as a 'mid magnification zoom' for later in 2013. Presumably this might be something like a 18-135 type of lens since they have this focal length in A-mount also. Unfortunately the A-mount version is not particularly fast either (f3.5-5.6). It would be nice if it was something like a 50-150 f4 but I doubt it.
