SAR has posted this SR5.

I am not a NEX user but I find it an attractive lens. But maybe too expensive? I don't know.

What do you think?

Well, if it's a FF, consider me interested, if APSC(most likely)...not so much

Hmmm.. I'm not a lens-expert, but I have never seen a FF lens so wide and with so much zoom. You can find 16-35, 17-35 or 17-40, but that is maximum AFAIK.

I'd be very interested in this lens. But not at $1,000...

Well, people have been clamouring for f/4 and if this thing is sharp wide open as some constant f/4 Minolta zooms are not then USD1000 does not surprise me, esp. since Zeiss.

This lens will essentially presents the same choice as the Zeiss 16-80mm did on the cropped Alpha's. If you want this very useful FL range and image quality on the NEX your only other choice is the 16-80mm on an LA-EA2, which is about $1000. The E-mount will be a little shorter and should be noticeably lighter and might be stabilized, but probably not. People who buy it will love it as a travel lens but it won't be a giant seller - limited by the 'Zeiss' price tag.

From 2007-2012 a-mount 16-80Z has been my favor zoom on KM5D and a700. Hope e-mount 16-70Z will be better built. But no rumor about OSS on this lens. So I think the lack of in-body stabilisation is the main reason, way this expensive lens can't be very popular on existing NEX models. In-body stabilisation is probably coming (rumor at SAR).

Agreed. A 4-5x high quality zoom starting at 24mm FF equivalent on the wide end is just what I've been look for. But one grand is just too much to ask especially considering its APSC nature..

$1000 for an f/4 zoom without OSS? Very pricey, unless the image and build quality are absolutely outstanding. Big surcharge for the name. I've been waiting for this lens, but not at this price and without OSS.

Hello CZ 16-80 f/3,5-4,5 for USD998 at BHPhotoVideo. And this thing will have to be smaller, and according to some it can't possibly be worse built.

We'll see. I don't like using anything except old small primes on my NEX 3 and don't always always use it because the shutter sounds like Donald Duck, but I can't help but feel that this thing might prove a very good compromise, if it's sharp wide open.

The 16-80 CZ is a good lens and now sells for $998 ... the only weakness was the zoom creep ... so I would consider this new lens if comes in a "small" size with zoom lock.

Oh- I've really got to type faster

Yeah, I know. That's a lousy deal too, IMO, considering what you get. For a grand I'd like something better constructed than a dog turd. Not a fan of paying 30-40% of the price of a lens for the badge.   At least you don't need OSS in-lens with A-mount lenses. I opted for the Sony 16-105mm when I had an A-mount camera rather than the Zeiss. Unfortunately, there is no such option for the E-mount.

SAR rumor about OSS on coming e-mount 16-70 Zeiss. If it is really so, it will be great lens.
