(SR5) More cameraporn: Full size pictures of the pink NEX-C3. Is the 30mm lens too big?

Here is the new PINK Nex-C3 with three different lenses. Click on picture to enlarge the image. I am a bit worried the 30mm macro might be too big and too slow (f/3.5) to sell well. It has the same size of the Sony 30mm f/2.8 DT macro which is faster and made for DSLR cameras. Wasn’t one of the advantages of mirrorless lenses that they can be more compact compared to DSLR lenses?

I searched on eBay to find some examples of compact macro lenses. Found one that is veeery small! The Zeiss S-Planar 60/4 Macro (Click here to see it on ebay). That is a macro lens I would love to see from Sony (or Zeiss)! Or look at the awesome Pentax DA 35mm f/2.8 (Click here to see it on ebay).

Let’s assume the image quality of the new macro lens for NEX is very high (price is 349 Dollars/Euro). Here is the question for you:

Will you buy the 30mm macro?
