November 12 2006


Before you is yet another lens I’ll be reviewing soon.  My limited use so far has revealed a pretty decent lens, but we won’t judge it until the full review.  I’d like to get my hands on the new Carl Zeiss 16-80mm but there seems to be a problem getting it to market.  Sony’s website said they would take orders starting Oct. 6th but now they’ve pulled that statement and no word period.  The 75-300mm I’ll review in the next couple of weeks.

Update: Sony now says the Carl Zeiss 16-80mm will be available in the spring of ’07, looks like Sony once again has some serious production problems.
