I wasn't able to attend NAB 2011 so Bunko kindly reported for me. He minces no words and his editorials are usually acerbic. I don't always agree with his views but, it is good to have a critical second opinion. When I first released this post for public consumption I neglected to edit out some of the harsher language so I apologize to anyone who was offended or hurt.
The manual 11-16mm zoom lens (PL-mount) for this camera looked great, it is coming out by late summer, did not ask about the price. The 18-250mm zoom lens is going to be servo, but Sony is not promising that one until year's end. That would be the one I would be getting, anyhow. From what little I could see of the super-zoom prototype hiding under glass in a dark area, it looked like a real cinema/video lens, finally. Thank you, Sony, better late than never, hmmm?
