28-70mm F3.5-F5.6 OSS FE

This has a midrange feel and specs that make sense for the price.

Sony finally brings one of the essential pro go-to lenses down to the E-mount.

Sonnar T* 35mm f2.8 ZA

Not the fastest lens, but compact and relatively reasonably priced for a Zeiss T* prime with a nine-bladed aperture.
FE Mount; $799.99; available December 2013

Sonnar T* 55mm f1.8 ZA

While I'm sure this will be a lovely portrait lens, I wish it came with optical image stabilization.

70-200mm f4 G OSS (in development)

Your compact camera will look miniature with this lens attached, but it will be nice to finally get a native E-Mount version of this telephoto staple. Sony will also have an updated version of the A-mount 70-200mm f2.8 in December for $2,999.99.
FE Mount; $tbd; availability tbd
