First picture of the new pancake 16-50mm E-mount lens!


We now saw pictures of all cameras but not of the new three NEX lenses. But at least I can share another picture I found through an Asian forum. It is the super tiny 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 pancake(!) zoom lens with buil-in stabilization and power zoom! It is as small as the similar Panasonic 14-42mm X lens (Click here) but covers a larger APS-C sensor. Another amazing achievement from Sony engineers!

Here is the list of the three upcoming E-mount lenses:

  • Sony 10-18 f/4 OSS: available in November 2012 for $850.
  • Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS: available in December 2012 for $450.
  • Sony 16-50 f/3.5-5.6 OSS (kit lens): available in January 2013 for $350.
