Just got the new Sony NEX6 camera

Enjoying it so far...any suggestion on either getting the sel18200 or the new sel18200le telephoto lens? Heard the new one is lighter and smaller than the old version but video quality is inferior because it doesn't have active image stabilization. Any thoughts?

Congratz! Great camera choice. What do you intend to shoot with it? If you care about lens quality & optical performance there's not that much to choose from:
- 10-18mm f/4 - for landscapes, architecture;
- 35 & 50 / f1.8 - for everything else depending on your comfortable focal length.
All 3 of them feature built-in optical image stabilization.

Thanks Manila. Taking photos and videos of my son playing team sports and of course general shots of friends and family are my primary goals. Thus, that's the reason I need a 200mm lens.

I doubt NEX AF can keep up with sport players moving around, but for stills and video it will do well. Check out these reviews if you haven't done it yet:
Sony NEX 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 OSS
Tamron NEX 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3
Sony NEX 55-210mm F/4.5-6.3 OSS

I'd like to know how satisfied you are with your choice afterwards.
