(SR5) The cheaper NEX-FF is said to be competitively priced against low end FF from Canon/Nikon.

The RX1 components.

-

A very trusted sources told me that the cheapest of the two NEX-FF models is said to be competitively priced with the low end Canon 6D (Click here) and Nikon D600 (Click here) FF cameras. Note: the cheapest FF of the moment is now the Canon 6D ($1499 here on eBay). But I think the source was referring to the “normal” non discounted price of the cameras which is around $2,000.

My trusted sources still didn’t say if both NEX-FF models will be announced in October or if the cheaper model will be announced a couple of months later.

Now this is a low rated rumor (SR3) only but if David Kilpatrick and a new sources that sent me the info I posted on Friday are right than the cheaper model will be more compact than the NEX-9. And maybe have no integrated viewfinder at all (which would bring it close to the RX1 design). But I repeat, that is not an info I got from my trusted sources. Anyway, here is the question:

Would you buy a "basic" compact NEX-FF with no intergrated viewfinder and price tag at $2,000?

Double Sony Lens patent (28-70mm and 24-135mm)

The image on top shows you the specs of a new 28-70mm f/4.0 Sony G Lens patent. You can read all specs at Freepatentsonline. It’s a Full Frame Lens but there is no info about the flange distance. I cannot say if it’s designed for A or E-mount cameras.

One more Sony 24-135mm F3.5-4 patent has been spotted by Egami. Weird, it’s an APS-C lens!

Sony RX100MII tested at Dpreview. QX10/100 shipment start today.

Today is the DDay for the new QX Lens cameras. They are marked as ready for shipment on Amazon US (Click here). And the QX100 counterpart, the RX100MII just got tested at Dpreview (Click here) and it earned a Silver Award:

“Overall, the RX100 II is virtually untouchable in its compact camera class. For anyone simply looking for the best image quality from a compact, the RX100 II is the answer. Enthusiasts, however, should be cautioned. Anyone who picks up the camera will love the images it produces, but someone looking for a more satisfying shooting experience might need to look elsewhere.”

This is definitely the best real-compact camera with zoom lens. I say “real” because many of the so said “compact” cameras are too big to fit comfortably in your pocket.

(UPDATED- Sold Out) The cheapest FF camera in the world is now the Sony VG900 (1145 Euro or $1,545).

Question: How low can the price of a Full Frame camera drop? Answer: 1145 Euro! That’s what you pay right now for the Sony VG900 at Redcoon in Germany (Click here). Damn would I love to have a cheap NEX-FF photocamera for that price :)

UPDATE: It’s now sold out!!!

Converted in US dollars the price is $1,545. That’s lower than the already superdiscounted Nikon D600 ($1575 here on BigValue) and the Canon 6D ($1749 here on RedTag).
