It was announced at the same time as the NEX-3 and NEX-5 cameras. ;-)

I think the NEX-5 + the NEX-VG10 would make a nice combo. Two units that can share the same lenses.

While the VG10 may seem expensive, when you consider the $800 E 18-200mm is included, it's actually a great price.

Thanks, for the chart.

is the 18-200mm a G series or CZ glass? That is very expensive if it is not G or CZ.

That's a good question. I thought I heard one of the reps say they were G lenses during a briefing call, however I could be wrong.

Let me see what I can find out.

if it is not a G or CZ lens, that is 2x the price of the SAL 18-200mm just for the built in IS.

That's about right when you look at the difference in price for Canon's IS and non-IS lenses.
