(SR3) Also a new 11-18mm pancake and a prime lens? Three NEX lenses at Photokina?


After the news we had yesterday about the two new NEX cameras many here commented that we need more lenses…not only more cameras :)

I just got a rumors from a new source saying that three new NEX lenses will be announced in September. One is the already mentioned 16-50mm pancake zoom. Another one will be the 11-18mm f/4 pancake and than we will have a fast prime lens.

Dear trusted sources let me know if we are right on this! Thanks!

Just a reminder. Back in February Sony unveiled the roadmap you see here on top. It contains the following lenses:
G standard zoom (2013)
higher magnification zoom lens (2012) -> I think that this is the updated 18-200mm lens announced two months ago
standard zoom (2012) -> Now we know this is the 16-50mm pancake G zoom.
wide zoom (2012) -> I guess this is the 11-18mm f/4.0 lens
middle magnification zoom lens (2013)
big aperture prime (2012) -> a 35mm prime???
middle range prime (2013)
pan cake (2013)

That’s cool: Gaffer taped NEX-7!

Our reader Jimmy Fok found a way to make look the NEX-7 even more sexy. He gaffer taped the Zeiss 24mm, NEX7 and 50mm lenses because “I hate the shiny look and didn’t want attention to the camera.” Looks cool or not?

P.S.: Jimmy’s website is www.calibrepics.com

Sony NEX-7 price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Sony Zeiss 24mm price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Sony 50mm price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

(SR5) One more “unexpected” NEX to come soon!

I have no specific details yet but I have been told by super trusted sources that a new NEX camera is coming within the next 5-6 weeks. And I don’t mean the long awaited NEX-5F but another one!!! I have been only told that this NEX will be the first of new series. No NEX-3/5/7 but something else! And I have been also told it is neither a Full Frame nor a “professional” camera.

Stay tunes on SAR. I am working to get some more bits about it!

P.S.: Remind you to join the super nice SAR community on Facebook (Click here).

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!

According to some of our sources the A99 will be announced in early September. And the worldwide shipment of the A99 is scheduled for early October in Japan and for mid-late October in Europe-US. Of course we have to see how many preorders the A99 will get…

I repeat the A99. 24Mpx, 102 AF points, 50-25,600 ISO (with +2 stop option), Built-in GPS, AVCHD 2.0 support, no CF nor XQD support. Price will be somewhere between 2,500 and 2,800 Dollars.

A first step into real NEX and SLT camera hacking…

DVXuser forum user “Someone1.00″ was able to make a first step into Sony SLT and NEX camera hacking. He is asking for support: “If any community will be able to support me I will share algo and key.” I hope some of the smart programmers here are reading this and may can help him out to create a hacker group for Sony cameras. This would be amazing!

Would you be interested in hacking your SLT or/and NEX camera?
