The recent announcement of the Sony NEX-7 has made me sit up and take notice. However, I'm puzzled that Sony doesn't even contemplate a fast (at least f/2) normal (30-35mm) prime lens in its lens roadmap, especially when there are a couple of fast 25mm normals for MFT and at least one fast normal for Samsung's NX. For me the entire appeal of the Sony NEX system (and other mirrorless system cameras) has nothing to do with zoom lenses. I want fast primes, and the smaller the better. And as much as I like and respect the work that can be done with wide angle and medium wide angle primes, there is also a strong argument to be made for the slightly more concentrated view of a "normal" lens. The lack of such a lens is enough to keep me from investing in a NEX-7. If one of the other manufacturers who have signed on to the E-format--Zeiss, Cosina, Sigma, Tamron--produces a fast normal, perhaps this will change my mind. Am I alone in seeing the lack of a fast normal prime E-mount lens as a glaring omission?
