(SR3) Very first A7000 rumors (NEX-7 successor). Has 4K and 1/8000 shutter speed?


It’s really time for Sony to update the great NEX-7 camera. And this is a brand new rumor I got from an anonymous source. So for now take it with a grain of salt but let us know what you think about:

2015 will see the release of the a7000.  It will include a new version of the 16-50 powerzoom dubbed version II with much improved quality.   The camera itself will feature full tethering capabilities, 4k video (uncompressed output), 1/8000 shutter speed, weather sealing, and maintain its rangefinder style.    Above all this, a new 16-70 zeiss will be released that will be weather sealed as well.  The 16-50 will not be weather sealed.
The sensor will be a new one, but still 24 mpx.

Sounds good to me! Be sure to not miss any upcoming exciting rumors and subscribe us here:

Zeiss 16-35mm FE lens first impression review by Colby Brown.


Colby Brown (Click here) got the new 16-35mm FE Zeiss and posted his first impression review:

When you hold it in your hand, it doesn’t feel cheap. It feels solid. Why? Because instead of using plastic like many camera/lens manufacturers these days, they use a metal finish, both for the lens body itself and for the focus ring, which truly does make a difference when you are holding it in your hands. On top of this, the lens is listed as dust and water resistant, a feature I plan on putting to the test since a hurricane is currently moving through Hawaii as we speak.

Other reviews so far from Brian Matiash from Photofocus and at Techbang (google tranlsation here). Image samples at Mark Galer’s Flickr page (Click here).
