Last minute info: announcement tomorrow 4am London time?

The little confusion on the Sony A58 and NEX-3n announcement date continues. I just got a short notice that Sony have sent out two different announcement dates. One for Monday the 25th and one for tomorrow (Feb 20th) at 4am London time. I am not sure why the heck they sent out two different dates. In any case if you don’t live in London this means:

5am in the morning Berlin time zone.
11pm (23:00) in New York today (Feb 19th)
8pm (20:00) in San Francisco today (Feb 19th)
1pm (13:00) in Tokyo (Feb 20th).

if you can be online by 4am in the morning (UK time) on I will be here to give you live updates on all new Sony cameras if there is one :)

Again, there seems to be a confusion around the announcement date and the cause seems to be Sony itself. So I don’t know if all cameras or no cameras or just one of the two cameras will be announced tonight or on Monday.

UPDATE: Another source told me the announcement is tomorrow while there seems that other countries got another announcement date.

Robert:I thought I would pass on a link to my newest site and a review of the NEX-7 I did. I love the camera and the fact that you can mount any 35mm lens ever made. It’s a great little camera. It’s a new site. Bob I love the manual focus versatility of the Sony NEX-7 camera, I got mine about 8 months ago and here’s why the NEX-7 makes photography fun again for me.

Mocha:Just some sharing of using Sony NEX-5N/ 7 with Olympus 15mm f/8 on a M4/3 to NEX adapter. Enjoy! :)

Martin:Da ich gerade gesehen habe, dass du das erste NEX Buch gezeigt hast: hier ist das erste NEX-5R & NEX-6 Videotraining! Sprache deutsch. Übrigens läuft noch ein Gewinnspiel auf meinem Blog.

And here it is the brand-old NikkorNex :)

Image and creation by Brendan Taylor.

Nikon 1 mirrorless system sucks and the NEX cameras look is to boring for you? Than just squeeze your NEX camera into an old styled and good looking Nikon F camera chassis! You can see the full “How-To” pics on Brendan Taylor’s google plus page. Great work Brendan!
