(SR5) The cheaper NEX-FF is said to be competitively priced against low end FF from Canon/Nikon.

The RX1 components.

A very trusted sources told me that the cheapest of the two NEX-FF models is said to be competitively priced with the low end Canon 6D (Click here) and Nikon D600 (Click here) FF cameras. Note: the cheapest FF of the moment is now the Canon 6D ($1499 here on eBay). But I think the source was referring to the “normal” non discounted price of the cameras which is around $2,000.

My trusted sources still didn’t say if both NEX-FF models will be announced in October or if the cheaper model will be announced a couple of months later.

Now this is a low rated rumor (SR3) only but if David Kilpatrick and a new sources that sent me the info I posted on Friday are right than the cheaper model will be more compact than the NEX-9. And maybe have no integrated viewfinder at all (which would bring it close to the RX1 design). But I repeat, that is not an info I got from my trusted sources. Anyway, here is the question:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Double Sony Lens patent (28-70mm and 24-135mm)

The image on top shows you the specs of a new 28-70mm f/4.0 Sony G Lens patent. You can read all specs at Freepatentsonline. It’s a Full Frame Lens but there is no info about the flange distance. I cannot say if it’s designed for A or E-mount cameras.

One more Sony 24-135mm F3.5-4 patent has been spotted by Egami. Weird, it’s an APS-C lens!

The SR5 rumors roundup…

Sony is doing a very fine job controlling information leaks much stronger than they did with the Xperia or QX announcement in early September. But I expect specs of the new cameras to be posted the coming 1-2 weeks. In the meantime here are some SR5 rumors the last weeks and this is a roundup to remind you what could be announced soon. These are all SR5 ranked rumors which means that there is a 90% chance the info is correct:

1) At least one NEX-FF will be announced in October.
2) The camera will be displayed at the PhotoPlus show in New York City which starts on October 23.
3) The NEX-FF has a NEX-7 shape but it’s a tiny bit bigger
4) There will be a second (cheaper) NEX-FF model. We don’t know yet if it will be announced in October or a couple of months later (early 2014).
5) There will be an ILCE-7 or A7 E-mount APS-C and DSLR shaped camera (we don’t know yet if it will be announced in October or in early 2014. But the chances are good it’s coming in October already)
6) There will be a Full Frame ILCE-9 or A9 (also here we don’t know if it will be announced in October or early 2014).
7) There will be new FE (“F”ull Frame “E”-mount) lenses. The Zeiss 35mm f/2.8, the Zeiss 55mm f/1.8, a 24-70mm Zeiss, a cheaper kit zoom and maybe another portrait lens (85mm f/1.8).
8) 70-200mm GII A-mount lens (October or early 2014)
9) Sony RX10 will be announced in October (likely an APS-C fixed lens camera)
-> 10) SR4: Although not coming via my own sources I am now pretty confident that a new NEX-7R will be announced soon too! Hope trusted sources can confirm it so that I can rank it SR5!

 

 

All other rumors like the Z-shift sensor tech, A-mount mirrorless cameras, the SAL-120F28 and SEL-70400G2 lenses are ranked between SR3 and SR4. I hope to get some more info about that the next couple of days!

Important note: A-mount camera owners really shouldn’t be worried! Your “rumor time” will come soon too!

(SR3) Sony A79 and A9x cameras in Store by early 2014?

Short break from NEX-9 and NEX-7r rumors to report a rumor about upcoming A-mount cameras. A source told me that a couple of new A-mount camera will be in Store by early 2014. This includes the A79 and the new A9x (final name not unveiled yet). Both cameras feature brand new Sony sensors (likely 36MP for the A9x) and 4 million dots OLED viewfinders. The major jump forward has been achieved on autofocus speed and accuracy.

The source didn’t unveil when these cameras will be announced but we heard of two Sony announcements to come. One in mid October (NEX-9, NEX-7R, RX10 and ILCE cameras) and on in January (likely for the new A-mount cameras?).

Sony strategy is likely the following: ILC-E-mount cameras like the A3000 will replace the low end A-mount cameras. And future A-mount cameras will focus on the semi pro and pro market.

 

A3000 with lens at Amazon, SonyStore, BHphoto, Adorama and Sony Canada. In Europe at Sony DE, Sony UK, Sony ES, Sony SE, Sony AT, Sony IT, Sony NL, Sony BE, Sony FI, Sony CH.

UPDATED: Image of a Pentax Full Frame DSLR (likely with Sony sensor)?

Pentax could be the second company after Nikon using Sony’s Full Frame sensor. The picture on top shows the FF mirror on a Pentax camera (Source: Xitek). The camera could be announced by End of October.

UPDATE: As I don’t have my own Pentax sources I cannot tell if the rumors is correct or not. although posted on many other site in these days (like Pentaxforums and Photorumors) it seems likely that this camera isn’t coming for now.
