Fujifilm has shown us prototypes of the five new lenses they plan to release next year. We’ve compiled a hands-on gallery for your perusal.

These include a 10-24mm f/4 constant-maximum-aperture ultra-wide zoom with OIS, a 23mm f/1.4 moderate wide-angle lens, a 27mm f/2.8 “pancake,” a 56mm f/1.4 telephoto prime and a 55- 200mm f/3.5-4.8 telephoto zoom lens with OIS.

How many years later and Sony still has not released a 50mm or 24mm equivalent for their E mount and their 35mm is a mediocre slow and overpriced.

IMHO, they should have joined m43s.

no, m43s has its own range. its to small for great bokeh. if you look at NX and NEX pictures with manual lenses (samyang 85mm f1.4) you have great quality, great bokeh and nothing you can get with a m43. imho ;)

Good to see the range of lenses expanding, the 56mm loks great.

Not sure what to make f the comments above though, if it's a 50mm equivalent that's being requested then the 35mm f1.8 has been launched. If its a true 50mm the Sony has had one all along. The most significant gap for both ranges is a fast telephoto lens in the 85-105 range. Hopefully someone will release one soon.

Fuji doesn't have a year in the market and already has more decent and useful lenses than Sony.

NEX cameras have 50mm f/1.8 basically. In December there will be a 35mm f/1.8. The overall quality of Sony's lenses is not top.

Fuji have high optical lenses and they already have more useful fast primes than Sony and this roadmap and prototypes just shows Fuji's real commitment with the consumer. Sony almost have more bodies than lenses and they have tons of zoom and almost no fast primes!
