Lot of High end NEX and NEX lens rumors work…

Share

This is just a short message to thank all anonymous sources sending me info about the Sony stuff coming in late August/early September. It looks like a high end NEX is really coming and so many more NEX lenses. I have some questions for all anonymous sources:

1) When is the NEX-5F and 16-50mmG pancake zoom going to be announced?
2) How many NEX lenses are coming this year? A source said “a lot” but a number would be welcome :)
3) What’s the final name of the 24 megapixel FF SLT camera?
4) Can you confirm the rumored 50mm f/1.2 Zeiss and 70-200mm G lens release?

Thanks! :)

(SR4) There will be no other SLT APS-C camera this year (A77 successor in 2013)

Sources told us that we very likely will not see the light of any new APS-C model this year. For now the A77 successor is scheduled for a 2013 release. Photokina in September will be focused on the release of the new NEX and Full Frame Cameras and Lenses. We already had a first price drop on the current SLT APS-C models and more price drops should arrive this winter.

Meantime all SLT cameras got an $50 discount:
Sony A77 body only (Click here).
Sony A77 with 16-50mm (Click here).
Sony A65 body only (Click here).
Sony A65 with 18-55mm (Click here).

(SR2) High End NEX camera coming at Photokina?

Image on top: The current NEX-7. Is the NEX-9 coming?

Before you read, this is a unconfirmed rumor from a new source. So take it with a grain of salt. As usual I hope my anonymous trusted sources can confirm or deny this soon.

A new source told us that a “new High End NEX camera is going to be displayed at the Photokina show“. The model has a higher number than than the NEX-7 (maybe Nex-9?). In any case this is an APS-C model not a Full Frame mirrorless! The fact that the source told me it is going to be displayed may hints the possibility of a 2013 availability (in Stock) only.

I can’t really figure out what the NEX-9 could do visibly better than the NEX-7. You may have an idea of what a NEX-9 APS-C sensor camera should do to convince you to buy it instead of the current NEX-7?

P.S.: NEX-7 is a hotseller at all rankings: Amazon US , Amazon Germany, Amazon France and at Amazon.

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!

Two FF cameras within the next 12 months. One to be named A88 and one A99?

Let’s start within the new week with a small rumors. As I already told you there will be one FF SLT camera at Photokina (specs you already know) and another High End Model within the first half of 2013. A new source just told me that one camera will be named A88 (veyr likely the A850 successor and “cheap” FF model) and another will be the A99 (very likely the A900 successor and “high” end model).

This is just to say that the final name of the coming 24 Megapixel model may be A88 instead of A99. I am still not sure. I hope my sources can confirm this soon. Keep in mind that Sony itself once said that there will be a A9x SLT Full Frame this year.

Anyway, we are just talking about the names here. I am trying to figure out how the High End Model could be. Early rumors suggested it would use the same Nikon D800 sensor and a built-in vertical grip. Question is if such a high end model makes sense. I mean, the pro market is pretty conservative and dominated by Nikon and Canon. You will need a huge effort to convince pro’s to switch the system! What do you think? Does it make sense?

SAR back online (some comments lost)

We had a pretty much severe issue. The disk of SAR was actually full and it caused a sever damage to the database. There were also two other issues with the backups and combine all that and the result is a very bad day :)

Anyway, I am no re inserting the articles I posted on SAR. I have to do it manually. But your comments form the last months will be lost. Really sorry, but this now convinced me one more time that SAR has to become a stable and standalone website.

This means that for the next 24 hours I may not post any news as I really have to use every free time for this. Meantime sources may send me some rumors baout the A88 and A99 to cheer me up :)
