    I can't see that it wouldn't also involve all necessary information for AF since I can't see any third party lens maker producing MF only lenses for E-Mount. It was interesting to see the comments attached to the press release from a number of lens makers - Zeiss, Cosina, Sigma and Tamron. Tamron in particular clearly indicate that they plan to make lenses for E-mount: 'We aim to offer our customers new solutions and unprecedented photo-shooting enjoyment through the manufacture and sale of “E-mount” lenses.'

  4. great news

    Great news for us, although it is going to be a while until we could get anything produced.

    I have bought one manual telephoto lens and it works great, if I have the time to compose the shot. I keep the 18-55mm lens on most of the time, unless like I said I am going to compose a shot.
