New Sony NEX G-series Lens: 18-105mm f4 G OSS
Sony continues to build up the NEX E-mount system by giving it a new designated G lens, the new 18-105mm f4 G OSS APS-C lens! This roughly translates to 27-158mm equivalent. OSS is of course optical image stabilization. Other specs: 72mm filters, f22 minimum aperture, and nearly half a kilo in weight. Making its way to the stills lenses is what Sony calls "floating axis" construction that they use in their Handycam camcorders that promises quiet and fast focusing. Quick, take out the decibel meters! Included in the box are front and ear caps, a petal lens hood, and a carrying case.
The lens is already available for pre-order for $600 at Adorama with a November 2013 release estimate from Sony.
