UK pricing for Sony?s NEX-5 and NEX-3 interchangeable lens compact cameras has emerged.

To coincide with the launches, Sony has unwrapped the Optical SteadyShot-enabled 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

The NEX-5 kit, with the 18-55mm lens, is due to cost £550-600. We understand that the NEX-3 outfit with the same lens will retail for £450-500.

A new 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 zoom will be available separately, priced £500-600.

The firm will also roll out a 16mm f/2.8 pancake lens (£200-220), plus an Ultra Wide Converter and Fisheye converter.

An optional adapter (LA-EA1) will allow use of Sony, Minolta and Konica Minolta AF lenses, though AF will not be possible. The adapter is expected to cost around £150 and be available at the same time as the cameras.

We expect the Ultra Wide Converter (VCL-ECU1) and Fisheye converter (VCL-ECF1) to cost around £100 each.

The 18-200mm lens will also be available in a kit, with NEX-5 only, though a price for this is not yet known.
