yet in the good ol’days THIS is how they did it :

.

.

even though the former has been out since early Summer (known in South Korea as the Apple iPhone 4 waiting phase) not many were available due to sales running of shelves like um, expensive lolipops – yummy 😉 and I mean ALL the variety in single button lens, zoom lens AND double lens sets . and very, very few models have been flying into South Korea late September (a.k.a. also known as : the time when the IT power-house of South Korea finally joined the rest of the modern era with not-really-early-adopters but wishfull shoppers heralding Apple iPhone 4 ownership but then most still help but wonder if the iPad will ever land on their shores /before/ the second version is released in the States)

  • Sony NEX-5K DSLR-grade non-mirror digital camera set came with SEL1855 lens with 35mm equivalent focal lengths of basic 27~82.5mm and brightness of f3.5~5.6 aperture (pictured in silver body)
  • Sony NEX-5H DSLR-grade non-mirror digital camera set comes with SEL18200 lens with 35mm equivalent focal lengths of a whopping 27~300mm and bightness of f3.5~6.3 aperture (pictured in black body )

 

.

and oh-my what can I say except that the size AND weight difference is pounding . and no, I simply refuse to reveal a photo of the latter lens fully extruded giving oh, such an intimidating bazooka look in a yet supposed-to-be compact Wonder of a camera .
