50mm f/1.8 for NEX release delayed til mid February! (But available in Asia)


The european and american release of the new 50mm f/1.8 lens for NEX has been delayed til mid February. Many Sonystores (like Germany) are now reporting the new availability date. But the lens is already in Stock in asian stores like Amazon in Japan.

BHphoto still says the lens will be available in December but Sonystore USA sent the following note to current 50mm preorders: “We would like to inform you we are experiencing a delay with your Sony order. The following item SEL50F18 has been rescheduled to ship on 03/02/2012.

And if you need a camera now than you might get the NEX-5n which just got his very first $50 price drop (via noisycamera). Problem is that it is backordered for 30 days :(
