(SR5) Sony will launch a new ILCE-QX1 camera!

I got this news weeks ago and now we got a proof via the Russian agency Novocert (Thanks Photorumors for spotting this). Sony will launch a new QX E-mount camera. it will be called ILCE-QX1. It’s basically a sensor and mount module that let’s you fit E-mount lenses on your smart phone or tablet!

I really don’t know if there is a market for this :)

P.S.: Photorumors also confirmed the rumor we posted last week. There will be a new 35mm G lens and a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G (article here).

(SR4) Samyang 50mm f/1.2 Cine lens (A and E-mount) to be announced on August 26.

It’s really lens rumor time at Photokina! Samyang will launch a new 50mm f/1.2 VDSLR (Cine) lens on August 26. And as usual with their Cine lenses we expect to get both A and E-mount versions of it. There is no info about the price yet but current VDSLR lenses are very cheap and of extreme good optical quality. A full list of these A and E mount Cine lenses can be seen at BHphoto (Click here).

(SR5) Huge Zeiss announcement coming soon! E-mount owners will love it :)

The original message from Zeiss on their Facebook page

Back in November 2103 Zeiss promised to launch new Full Frame Lenses for mirrorless systems. Well according to a 100% trustworthy source Zeiss has scheduled a new announcement to announce those lenses. I don’t have the exact announcement date but he said it’s coming damn soon (within the next 20 days). And the trusted source said E-mount owners will love the new stuff. Hands ready on your credit card guys! :)

(SR5) Trusted sources about Sony at Photokina: Focus will be on lenses and not so on cameras!

In these days I had some “precious” talk with long time trusted sources. While they cannot unveil me specific info (for security reasons) they gave me some insight on Sony’s strategy:

First: This year Photokina will not be that exciting. It means that no real bigger stuff is coming from any company.

Second: Sony’s focus at Photokina will be on lenses more than on cameras (which by the way I think it’s good news as this is what we miss most now).

Third: Major innovative products will be launched in early 2015.

Fourth (the good surprise): One major good news will come soon for Full Frame E-mount. They said “you will love it”.

Reminder: Sources can send me anonymous info by using the contact form you see on the very right of your browser. You can also contact me directly at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com.

I am working now every day to get info on the new Sony products. I can tell you there will be actually one good and one crazy-weird surprise. I am working to get more info about it now…
