Low price FullFrame price battle reloaded (Canon 6D announced).

Share

So, here we are with now two cheap Full Frame models from the competition that need to be fought with a future A95 model! Today Canon announced the new 6D (Specs and price here). Along the Nikon D600 (specs and price here) this is the second entry level FF camera priced at $2100. This is just to say that Sony may not only have to bring a High pixel camera like the D800, but maybe also a new entry level FF. At least according to SAR readers vote this should be done by Sony:

....would you be interested in buying an A95 entry level FF camera for $2100?

I am 90% sure we will have a High End model with High Resolution (30+ Mega-pixel) sensor in 2013. I am not so sure about the cheap FF entry level model. Hope sources are reading this and may send me some info about it.

Sony Japan (Translation here) posted an interview with the Sony A99 engineers. There isn’t really interesting stuff to read. They just repeat how the goal was ultimately to have a high image quality and a “three-dimensional sense of resolution

And you remember Paul Genge from Sony UK? He doens’t work for Sony anymore and started a new website called CameraDiner.com. I wish him good luck!!!

– $ 80 on the NEX-7 body at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).
– $ 80 on the NEX-7 with kit lens at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

PArticularly the NEX-5n is very attractive at that price and sells like hotcakes according to Amazon ranking (Click here ot see it). In Europe the only price drop I found is on Pixmania.

Sony and Olympus partnership for 50 billion yen!

NHK reports that Olympus and Sony may have reached an agreement and Sony will invest 50 billion yen into Olympus in exchange of a large Olympus share. The main interest for Sony is the medical business but I guess there will be some effects on the camera business too. By the way, the popular Olympus E-M5 camera already uses a Sony sensor!

UPDATE: Some still don’t believe my words…Olympus manager Sasa confirmed some time ago that the E-M5 uses a Sony sensor. Here is the source of the news: DC.watch.
