New Sony Cameras are Good, but E-Mount Lenses are Better

Sony 16-70mm f-4 E-Mount Lens

Admist a flurry of Sony announcements last night, I think the big news is the release of three new E-Mount lenses. Sony has consistently developed terrific Compact System Camera bodies, but where they've suffered at the hands of the mirrorless competition is with their lens catalog.

Now, with the release of the Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm f/4 ($998), the 50mm f/1.8 E prime lens ($298), and the 18-105mm f/4 E zoom ($598), Sony has boosted their E-Mount catalog to 17 lenses, with some very sweet optics in the mix.

I have no doubt that Sony will continue to produce compelling NEX camera bodies. But having lens support is the air cover the entire product line needs for success.
