(SR4) Sony A99 sales goal has been reached and surpassed. New price drops coming this summer.


A very long time trusted sources shared some good news about the A99 sales and future. First of all Sony’s sales forecast not only has been matched but there were 5% more sales than expected. The same source also told me new A99 price drops (worldwide!) can be expected to be launched this summer. Along the new firmware that will be announced too.

Sounds great!

P.S: Yesterday’s A99 deals are just the start! 6ave has two A99 superkits: One for $2,271 (Click here) and another one for $2,280 (Click here).

Metabones A to E-mount Speed Booster coming in August. Vizelex clone now in Stock.

SAR reader Alan got a confirmation from metabones that they will start to sell an A-mount Speed Booster adapter for NEX cameras in August! That’s great news! All current Speed Booster for NEX can be found at Adorama (Click here).

And in the meantime a third company is now offering a “Speed Booster” alike adapter. Fotodiox launched the Vizelex Cannon Nikon G to E-mount adapter which is in Stock at Amazon US (Click here). But from first testings at personal-view

we know that the quality is inferior compared to the (more expensive) Metabones.
