We love Sony's NEX cameras, but it's hard to deny that the E-mount lens lineup is a little lacking next to Olympus and Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds offerings. Sony promises it's on the case, though, and has used the CP+ show as an opportunity to give some hints as to what's in store — while we don't have detailed specifications, we now know the quantity, variety and (roughly) quality of lenses in development.

2012 is mostly going to be about zoom, with wide angle, standard and high-magnification lenses all on the way, along with a fast standard prime. 2013 will see the release of a G-series high performance standard zoom, a mid-magnification zoom, a mid-telephoto prime, and an unspecified pancake. That's eight new lenses in all, making for a lineup of 15 by the end of next year — along with offerings from third parties such as Kenko Tokina and Tamron.
