    Couldn't help noticing that Sony have updated their NEX lens roadmap. On previous versions the recently released lenses were referred to in general terms; now they are named. So I was curious what descriptions are in place for the forthcoming lenses, only written in Japanese on link above.

    The 'G' lens was described in the earlier version as a 'high performance standard zoom'.
    The last lens in the zoom lens group was described as a 'mid magnification zoom'
    The two lenses in the fixed focal length group were described as a 'middle telephoto' and a 'snap (pancake)' whatever that is.

    It would be interesting to know if the current roadmap contains the same descriptions or if any of these have evolved since.
