Working on A-mount rumors/news too…(lenses, firmware and A-mount mirrorless)

The last weeks were extremely busy. As you have seen I posted many QX and NEX rumors. Now I wanted tow write a short note just to say that I am working on A-mount news too. Within the next 2-3 weeks I should be able to get more concrete (and hopefully SR5 rated) info about the upcoming products. In very short this is what I am working on:

1) A-mount lens roadmap: as I told you there are definitely a 70-200mm II and 400mm lens to come. But I heard about two more lenses…

2) Firmware update: There is a silence around it. probably because there are bigger rumors at the moment. But I will try to ask my sources to tell me something about it

3) SLT vs A-mount mirrorless: While it’s almost sure that A-mount mirrorless is the future I am still not 100% sure that there will be no other SLT camera.

So be patient, I am on it :)

(SR5) New Honami i1 leaks (shots 4K, and first full size image sample).

Here is a short roundup of latest Honami leaks: As you know this is a high-end smartphone with built-in 20 Megapixel 1/2.3 inch sensor and 28mm f/2.0 G lens. This smartphone is also supposed to feature a new JPEG engine that could find his way in future A and E mount cameras too and it will also shot 4K video! GSMarena posted new images of the Smartphone while Xperiablog posted the first full size image sample (Click here to see it). The image sample doesn’t really look that good. But it’s hard to say if 1) the image is real and 2) this has been taken with a pre or final production camera.

The new NEX, the Honami, the Lens Camera and the new Action Cameras…there is a lot to come from Sony!

Sony sends out invitations for a September 4 event ( Honami and QX launch!).

ThePhoBlographer received that Sony invitation for a September 4th press event. according to our sources this event is very likely for the new Honami i1 smartphone (with G lens and 1/2.3 inch sensor) and for the QX “lens-cameras” series. The new NEX-5t and 16-70mm Zeiss E-mount lens will be announced earlier (probably August 29). While I expect the NEX-FF (and A-mount stuff?) to be announced in late September.

(SR4) More Zeiss lenses than expected for the new FF system: three to come!


Image on top shows the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 C Biogon T* for the M-mount system. A similar (but bigger) lens will be announced for the E-mount FF system.

Trusted sources told me (with my huge surprise) that Sony and Zeiss worked much closer than expected on the soon to come new NEX-FF system. I now have been told that along the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FF E-mount lens there will be two more Zeiss lenses! A source also told me there would be a Sony branded G zoom lens too. This makes a total of four lenses that will be unveiled along the NEX-FF camera (in September?). I am now trying to convince sources to share the detailed Lens specs.

The rumor is marked SR4 until I get a clear evidence that these lenses are real. Someone has a picture to share? :=)

(SR5) Sony will soon announce the Zeiss 16-70mm f/4.0 E-mount lens!

Image of the Zeiss Touit prototype lens (not the new 16-70mm lens!)

And finally we will get our first high quality zoom for the NEX system. Sony will launch the new Zeiss 16-70mm f/4.0 E-mount lens by End of August (likely August 29)! It will be unveiled along the new NEX-5T camera. This is a completely different lens than the 16-80mm Zeiss A-mount version (here at Amazon). But the price will be more or less similar (around $1,000).

One more NEX-FF thing: Still working on the camera specs. But I was able to get lens info from one source. I am now trying to double check the info I got. If it’s true than the lenses are GREAT! And that is not me being Sony fanboy or over emotional. Stay tuned on SAR!
