Sony introduces two new NEX lenses: the 20mm f/2.8 pancake, and the 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Powered Telephoto Zoom Lens

The Sony NEX mount is no longer the one with more cameras than lenses. Since we first wrote that, a year ago, Sony has unveiled a handful of new glassware, including the fantastic 10-18mm f/4.0 OSS. Today they unveil another Pancake, the not very ambitious 20mm f/2.8 and the motorized E 18-200mm OSS Power Zoom, a lens that previously existed as the kit lens of the NEX-VG900 video camera.
