FF NEX discussion reloaded. The need for a “cheap” FF NEX!

Yesterdays post about the future FF-NEX set a new record with 475 comments (Click here to read them all). I am sure Sony managers read them all and it’s also clear that the high price of the FF-NEX may be a hurdle for the final success of the system. From the over 6.000 voters only 13% said they would buy the NEX-FF. And only 13% said they may or may not buy it.

So let’s imagine another solution. A cheap very basic and simple FF-NEX, with no viewfinder, no fancy tech but with a top sensor and decent AF speed. If Sony would manage it to keep costs low and sell the camera for $2500 (body only)….

Would you consider to buy the minimalistic and cheap FF-NEX for $2,500?

This is my last poll about the NEX-FF. After that I will ask for feedback from my sources to hear what they think. Let’s go back and post some new NEX-7n rumors soon :)

P.S.: Reminder of what we know about the NEX-FF:
- 24 Megapixel FF sensor (there is a second prototype with 32 Megapixel sensor)
- Similar NEX-7 form factor
- More expensive than the current RX1
- Release in 2014
- Three new FF Zeiss lenses coming in June 2014 along the first FF NEX

Specs of the Zeiss lenses are unknown but Zeiss has a great history of FF lenses made for the “Full Frame” ZM analog camera:
