(SR3) A99 will run out of production in late November?

-

I am really not sure if the rumor I got is correct. But if it is this means the A99 will soon be replaced by another model. According to a new source the A99 production will cease on November 30. As you know I got an info from a top source that Sony will launch an ILCE-9 or A9 E-mount Full Frame camera within the next 4-5 months. The big question is, when the A-mount A99 successor will be announced. Note: Sony officially said that the new E-mount DSLR shaped cameras will not replace the A-mount cameras (Source: Amateur Photographer).

Current A99 price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

One more thing: Again an A77 Gold Box deal in Germany (more at DealsRunner.com).

Source talks about a surprise….

Yesterday I wrote how Sony will announce the NEX-FF and likely RX10 and ICLE-7 (and ILCE-9?) in mid October. Now I got this rumor from another source:

“The big announcement will have even more than expected. Was informed something else “special” to appear as well, came from Sony-Japan.”

Maybe the source can just give us tony bot more info about the “special” thing? Thanks :)

Something else: The mobile theme of SAR has been fixed. Tablet owners can now surf this site way better than before!

Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE lens has exactly the size of the 35mm f/2.0 from the RX1.

As noted by Lepidi the soon to be announced Zeiss Sonnar FE 35mm f/2.8 lens has the same size of the Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 lens from the Sony RX1/R. It shows the advantage of the fixed lens FF RX camera where the lens has been designed to be as close as it gets to the sensor. That’s why NEX-FF lenses will be always bigger than lenses fixed on a RX FF camera.

 

Here are again the FE Zeiss specs (compared with current Zeiss 24mm APS-C lens).

(SR5) Sony sends out invitations for a “Big” event! Full Frame NEX-9 coming.

A dozen (yes a dozen!) of European stores just sent me messages to tell me that they got an important invitation from Sony. These are big and very small store owners. They told me that Sony invited them for a very important meeting where Sony will show them something “BIG” in the digital camera market (that’s the word used by Sony). Every store got different meeting days. But these are all days in the week between the 14 and 18 of October.

I am going to share one of the mail I received from a small store owner (Thanks to the anonymous sender). This is what he wrote:

I work at a small camera retail store in a small country in Europe. Yesterday we got mail from Sony. There will be a meeting on October 18.
And the fact, that we get an invitation, means it must be something big. Every other announcement Sony makes, we get via mail. On the next day…
It didn’t say, what will be announced. But… Last time our Sony representative told us, that there will come a “Full Frame NEX 7″ soon.

I repeat the public announcement date isn’t known yet. These are only a sort of “private meeting”. But the NEX-9 Full Frame camera will be definitely official for the PhotoPlus show in NYC!

Note: This is the first time even small store owners got an invitation. It shows you how “BIG” an important the announcement is. New RX, NEX-FF, ILCE cameras and many Zeiss and Sony lenses will be announced. I am very excited…and you?
