(SR4) Sony is working on the release of two different 50mm Alpha lenses.

Share

The past months I got different rumors about a new 50mm prime. Some sources said it’s a Zeiss, some a Sony, some said it’s f/1.2 and some said it’s f/1.4. I was puzzling a lot until I got it why the rumors were not matching. These are actually two different lenses! One is the already mentioned (on SAR) 50mm f/1.2 Zeiss SSM lens that should arrive along the A99. Another is the updated version of the current 50mm f/1.4 SAL lens. I don’t know when the last one is goint to be announced. I am still waiting before to upgrade this rumor to the “SR5″ level. I want to get some feedback from my very top sources. So be patient until I can give you some further details.

P.S.: What’s SR5 is that there will be more than one new Full Frame Alpha Lens in September (about time!).

(SR5) Coming soon: 16-50mm f/3,5-5,6 OSS G zoom E-mount lens!

Top sources told us that it is the High Quality G zoom lens that is coming along the new NEX-F5. It has a focal length of 16-50mm, an aperture of f/3,5-5,6 and comes with OSS (Image stabilization). I have no info about the possible price yet. I also don’t know if there will be a second lens too.

Anyway, this will be definitely a better lens on my NEX-7 than the current 18-55mm kit lens. Let’s cross the fingers that the price isn’t much higher! Oh, almost forgot it…I want it in Black too!

(SR4) NEX-F5 with 16 mpix sensor and 180 degree flip screen and WiFi!

What you see here on top is the just announced NEX-F3. And according to top sources also the upcoming new Sony NEX-F5 will share the same 180 degree flip screen and 16 Megapixel sensor. One of the main differences between the two cameras will be the integrated WiFi feature of the NEX-F5! As you may know Samsung was the first to announce mirrorless cameras with integrated WiFi (like the just released Samsung NX210). I think WiFi is a must have feature. But so are new lenses, and these are also coming along the NEX-F5. Stay tuned on SAR as usual!

(SR3) Next Sony announcement in early-mid June?

The (superexpensive) Leica X2 is the last of the APS-C model with fixed lens. Is Sony coming as next?

I am getting first reports about a possible new Sony product announcement in June! I have been told that “something is going on“. I hope trusted sources can read this post and send me some more info soon. As you know the NEX-F5, new NEX lenses and the APS-C compact camera with fixed lens are rumored to arrive sometimes this summer. The A99 is scheduled for a late August early September announcement but I hope Sony will show us the prototype earlier.

I am right now collecting rumors about the NEX-F5 which promises to be a pretty good camera. And I have been told the new NEX lens(es) will be “great”. I haven’t heard anything about the fixed lens DSC-R1 alike (here on eBay) camera. Let’s hope that’s coming too :)

Stay tuned on SAR! And if you know “something” feel free to contact me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com or use the anonymous contact form you see on the right sidebar! Thanks!

(SR5) New E-mount lenses coming along the NEX-F5!

Top sources unveiled that the NEX-F5 will be announced sometimes this summer. They also confirmed now that there will be new E-mount lenses too. And one of them expressly said: “I am talking about very high stuff, not a cheap 18-200mm lens like we had it now” …LOL :)   About time!

P.S.: The Sony NEX-5n $50 rebate will end soon at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here)! And the super nice and cheap 50mm is back in Stock via J&R at Amazon (Click here).
