New Sony products announced.  

Sony announced some new products recently, including two new lenses, and two cameras.  The new DT 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 is priced at $498, while the new black 18-200mm NEX lens is $848.  I”m not sure if that lens is much difference from the current NEX 18-200mm except for the color. On a second look, I think…
