The latest lens announcement from Sony is that of the E18-200mm f3.5-6.3 OSS, which will be available on September 10th in Japan.  It's presumed that we'll see it in a similar timeframe in the States.

The E18-200mm f3.5-6.3 OSS is an image stabilized zoom lens with a significant zoom range - the equivalent of 27-300mm.

It's an E-Mount lens, designed for use with Sony's NEX series as well as E-Mount camcorders.  Sony says that the newly developed lens motor will deliver smooth, quiet and fast zooms while taking still shots and video.

The E18-200mm f3.5-6.3 OSS is priced at 95,000 yen in Japan, which comes out to just over $1,100 in US dollars.
