Three new lenses with OSS:
One of the SAR readers main question was if the new lenses would have OSS (in lens stabilization). The answer is the best I can give you…all three lenses will have OSS! So we will get a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS pancake (retractable) powerzoom. A 10-18mm f/4.0 OSS (non pancake). And a 35mm 1.8 OSS prime lens.
What I don’t know yet is the price of the lenses and if they are going to be announced this week along the NEX-5R or in September along the NEX-6. For now the announcement of the NEX-5R is scheduled for this Wednesday (European time). There may be some changes in last minute.
Current NEX lenses with OSS:
18-200mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
50mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay (my favorite NEX lens!)
18-55mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
55-210mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
