(SR5) Huge Zeiss announcement coming soon! E-mount owners will love it :)

The original message from Zeiss on their Facebook page

Back in November 2103 Zeiss promised to launch new Full Frame Lenses for mirrorless systems. Well according to a 100% trustworthy source Zeiss has scheduled a new announcement to announce those lenses. I don’t have the exact announcement date but he said it’s coming damn soon (within the next 20 days). And the trusted source said E-mount owners will love the new stuff. Hands ready on your credit card guys! :)

I have no specs of the new lenses yet but Zeiss already made manual focusing lenses for “non-DSLR”. These are the Zeiss “Full Frame” ZM analog camera lenses:

No buyers storm on the new Sony A5100 (says Amazon). New Sony A5100 tests and video roundup.


Detailed look at the Sony a5100 interchangeable lens camera (found via Nofilmschool)

While this isn’t a scientific measure I just checked the Amazon digital camera Best seller rankings (Click here) to see if the new Sony A5100 got many preorders (Amazon counts orders-preorders in that list). Well unlike the A6000 to other popular E-mount cameras the A5100 didn’t even make it into the top 100 of that list. Well this may changes if you check out that list of new reviews and videos :)

There is a short hands-on review in Thai but with plenty of great product pictures and image samples posted at Pantip.com (google translation here).

New A5100 videos on Youtube:
Sony A5100 Touch AF Demo
Sony A5100 Autofocus tracking and hi-speed shooting (6fps)

(SR5) Trusted sources about Sony at Photokina: Focus will be on lenses and not so on cameras!

In these days I had some “precious” talk with long time trusted sources. While they cannot unveil me specific info (for security reasons) they gave me some insight on Sony’s strategy:

First: This year Photokina will not be that exciting. It means that no real bigger stuff is coming from any company.

Second: Sony’s focus at Photokina will be on lenses more than on cameras (which by the way I think it’s good news as this is what we miss most now).

Third: Major innovative products will be launched in early 2015.

Fourth (the good surprise): One major good news will come soon for Full Frame E-mount. They said “you will love it”.

Reminder: Sources can send me anonymous info by using the contact form you see on the very right of your browser. You can also contact me directly at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com.

I am working now every day to get info on the new Sony products. I can tell you there will be actually one good and one crazy-weird surprise. I am working to get more info about it now…
