Check out some photos of the New Sony Nex-5T and three new e-mount lenses including the Sony E-Mount 18-105 f/4 OSS Power Zoom Lens, the Sony E-Mount 16-70mm f/4 OSS Lens, and a Black version of the E-Mount 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens (sel50f18).
The Sony Nex-5T appears to have a very similar design to the Nex-5r I reviewed (Click Here). Rumors are the Nex-5T may have a new menu system (finally!) and the inclusion of NFC for better wireless connectivity I believe. Similar to the Samsung NX300 I’m currently reviewing (Click Here). The sensor will likely be the same 16mp hybrid AF unit, or a 20mp version to compete with Samsung I’m thinking? These features alone don’t seem like enough to justify a new camera though, so I think they will be more significant than were currently speculating. Remember, Sony canceled the Nex-7N because it was NOT significantly better than the Nex-7. Therefore the Nex-5T should offer something special I think. What that is, I don’t know? Special rear screen? Dust proof? Anybody??

Sony E-Mount 18-105 f/4 OSS PowerZoom Lens – SELP18105
This lens looks like a beast and looks like the lens filter thread is 72mm in the photo below. That is huge and is going to be a bit awkward when putting the camera down if it’s on a small Nex camera body. Mounted to a Nex-VG camcorder on the other hand this lens would really be killer! Note the pwerzoom toggle.
Zeiss E-Mount 16-70mm f/4 OSS Lens
This next Zeiss lens looks like a crowd pleasure to me, but I suspect many will wish for a faster aperture. It has a 55mm filter thread, and I feel the relative small size of the lens and inclusion of OSS makes this a prime candidate for the all-in-one crowd that demands quality. I’m one of those people, and highly recommend the A-Mount 16-80mm Zeiss lens which I reviewed (Click Here), for the same reason. Super high quality Zeiss optics, a better zoom range than the stock 18-55mm kit lens, and the price. I think this lens will be around $1000 US hopefully, and if it is I will likely get one if I decide to keep my Nex-6 and go FF A-Mount.
New 50mm f/1.8 OSS Lens – Black Version
Same but in another color is all it appears which is fine by me. The SEL50F18 is a killer lens for the money and it’s nice I can now get a black version for my Nex-6, because silver does look a bit weird.
