(SR2) First rumor about a super cheap FF E-mount camera. Costs 799 Euro with lens?

FacebookShare

Low rated SR2 rumors should always taken with a grain of salt. They are sent to me by new anonymous sources and very often are not correct. But sometimes unlikely rumors happen to be true and the following rumor at least has some small real chance to become true. The source told me:

super cheap full frame beginner mirrorless is coming! 799 us for the kit.

Well, it may or may not be true but Sony really patented such a compact and cheaper FF camera design back in October 2013 (SAR article here). And a highly trusted source told me that Sony has such a prototype in their labs for real!

Those of you arguing that such a price is impossible well…the A7 sells for 1.050 Euro on eBay (Click here). Now imagine a more compact camera without EVF…799 is really not that impossible!

So let’s take the chance to let Sony know if SAR reader would like to get such a camera:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
