This is your guide to the current and discontinued NEX 'E' mount compatible lineup.  My reviews (if available) are indicated by the bold blue "yes" link in the fifth column, or by clicking on the lens picture.
 
Please note; the specifications given here are probably more accurate than the official manufacturers website. Most of the discrepancies involve aperture, weight and dimensions, not a big deal.  On the lenses I have, I've been able to corroborate my information below-which may be different from the manufacturer.
 
Note on MSRP's.  I've listed the MSRP prices for when the lens was introduced.  I think it's more fun to know what the lens was offered at years ago.  Go to the review for current prices.
 
For full specifications, go to the review if available.
