(SR4) More detailed NEX-5T and ILC-3000 sensor info

A nice source ;) sent me more useful info about the new NEX sensors:

NEX-5T
The NEX-5T is using the same IMX080AQM-13 CMOS sensor as the 5R. But it has been slightly “improved”.

ILC-3000
The ILC-3000 is using a new 20MP sensor-IMX156AQL-13 and it’s new.

Stay tuned on SAR! These new stuff will be announced next week (likely on August 27).

(SR4) UPDATED: A-3000 (or ILC-3000) will cost 300 pounds.

A trusted source (Thanks!) told me that the A3000 body  cost around 300 pounds. it will be also available with the 18-55mm as kit lens. The EVF is 200K only(!). That is not much but the target-group is beginners.

Will take the chance to ask the source if he heard something about the NEX-FF cameras. Thanks!

UPDATE: Another source said Have read the ILC-3000 has the lowest resolution screen in the E-Mount lineup at 230k and no fast PDAF, only contrast AF system. Battery is the NP-FW50 used by the NEX series and SLT-A33/35/37.

RX100 for $549. Sandisk deals back.

It’s the first time I see the RX100 sell for less than $550 thanks to 6ave on eBay (free shipping). The store must have some kind of special connection to Sony because they also sell the A99 body for $2,300 only (here one Bay).

And another good news if you missed it last week:  The up to 60% savings on Sandisk cards are back at Amazon US (Click here). P.S.: The Zeiss 50mm is in Stock at BHphoto.
