A full NEX-F3 and A37 and lens rumor roundup!

Share

We had a busy weekend with plenty of rumors and leaks. Time to sum everything in one single post. And I also want to know your buying intentions :)
The good news of all these leaks is that I posted the NEX-F3 and A37 rumor over three months ago. These means that also my Full Frame rumors are very likely correct as they are coming from the same sources!

One more thing: The roadmap image you see in the first thumbnail below doens’t include the pro stuff! Don’t worry, A99 is coming in August :)

(SR5) Massive leak of new NEX-F3 pictures!!!

There has been a massive leak at Yangcanggih (Click here). You Can click on the pictures to enlarge the images! As you can see it really has that 180 degree titlable LCD screen “copied” from he Samsung MV800 (here on eBay). The camera is a bit more “massive” compared to the NEX-C3 due the new grip and probably thicker body.

 

So, you have seen the pictures. Question is….

Do you like the new NEX-F3 design?

NIkon will also use the upcoming new A99 24 Megapixel FF sensor?

The exploding Nikon D800 camera with 36 Megapixel Sony manufactured sensor.

For almost a year now I am sharing with you bits of rumors about the next A99 24 megapixel SLT Full Frame camera. Now Nikonrumors reports that also Nikon will use the same sensor (of course sold a “Nikon designed”) for the next D600 FF camera. I have some doubts the rumors is true also because it’s said that the Nikon D600 will cost $1500 only! Or wait, let’s hope this is true and that Sony has to sell the A99 for $1200 in order to compete against Nikon :)

Or, maybe Nikon will help Sony for free by creating another exploding Full Frame camera! Yes, the Nikon D800 explodes as it is reported here at CanonWatch :) And also maybe because of that it’s no more on top of the Amazon ranking (Click here to see).

P.S.: Nikon claims the 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor used for the Nikon D3200 (here at Amazon) is different from the Sony A77 sensor. But I don’t believe in coincidences :)
