(SR3) New 55-150 f/2.8 G E-mount zoom to be released in September


I got info about a new E-Mount zoom lens. Sony could launch the new 55-150mm f/2.8 G zoom lens in September. it will be announced along the new NEX ASP-C cameras and the 16-xx mm zoom lens. This would be the first high quality and fast mid range zoom for the NEX system. I do not have info about the price but the lens will ship in October-November.

Do you consider to buy the new 55-150mm f/2.8 G lens?
