Yesterday I went out with the two NEX-7's. One fitted with the 18-55mm (black version) and the other with the 55-210mm. Even with two cameras and two lenses this is a very light outfit.

What I found interesting when I looked at the images is that the black 18-55mm seems to produce sharper images than either of the two silver ones I had with my NEX-5n's. This could mean that Sony are only releasing their best examples with the NEX-7, they have an entirely new production run (though they claim this is the same lens) or that I have a particularly good one. Here's a few comparisons and 100% blowups.
