Sony NEX / Full Frame Alpha non DSLR Cameras Sony does a lot of things well. Naming their cameras so the nomenclature makes sense is not one of them. The NEX series has now become the Alpha NEX series, not to be confused with their Alpha DSLRs. Huh ? IS the person who misnamed the Leica M10 the Leica M240 now working for Sony? The new full frame Alpha 7/7r are incredibly successful. I wonder how long it will take the other manufacturers to make their version of the 7/7r full frame cameras.

kit lens is pretty wonky

at least at the extremes, I'd go to the sony site or costco and pay $100 more to get the 16mm prime, then sell or give away the kit zoom.

For me, it is too slow, and has too much distortion on the wide end.

The build quality appears the same as the prime, but when extending it from the wide end, a plasticy thing comes out the front, very cheap, IMHO.

I've seen some good images from the lens in bright light, but not at the wide end.
