When Sony's mirrorless system debuted back in 2010, it was ripe with promise. Here we had a new system that squeezed DSLR-sized image sensors into ultra-thin bodies far lighter than anything you could get from Nikon or Canon. The NEX-3 and NEX-5 weren’t perfect, but they showed that “mirrorless” didn't necessarily have to mean “compromise.”

Unfortunately, cameras are just the start; you need the lenses to back them up, and that’s where Sony faltered.
