UPDATED: More NEX-FF info coming soon!


UPDATE: I got a correction from the source. Sony has scheduled a camera(s) announcement day for September and not in August.. Plenty of new cameras and lenses are coming!

Bye the way, if you are interested in the new NEX-FF camera you should stay tuned on SAR this week. If all works fine I will get the first specs of the Zeiss FF prime lens!

Cnet says they don’t believe our “Lens-Camera” rumor is true. Wanna bet I am right? :)

The screenshot has been grabbed from that Youtube video from Cnet. They don’t believe on the rumor posted by SonyAlphaRumors and made a bit of fun on us :)

Now, dear Cnet…you wanna bet with me that the rumor is correct? If I am wrong I send you a couple of superb french bottle of wine. If I am right you could offer a couple of beers when I will visit you in NYC. Deal?

Now something more interesting for our readers: The same sources that told us about the “Lens-Camera” also shared info on the NEX-FF and the Honami Smartphone-camera. And at least the last one has been officially confirmed via FCC registration (Source: GSMarena). Be ready for a round of beer Cnet guys! And to SAR readers, be ready to read some new NEX-FF rumor soon! ;)

Sigma f/1.8 zoom will ship in September only (in Europe). Zeiss 50mm.


Amazon UK (Click here) reports that the lens is due to be release on September 1. That’s a bit later than expected (the lens will ship in 10 days in US stores). The lens can be preordered at Amazon Germany too (Click here).

And the Zeiss 50mm is shipping at UKbnsuk and almost ready to ship at Technikdirekt too.

Terrance:I have been a Minolta /Sony user since 1975 and own 90% of all high end full frame cameras and lenses produced by them. One of the fun things that I do with my A850 and A900 and Zeiss lenses is light painting/sculpting at night. I have attached a 5 minute YouTube video documentary for you and your SAR friends to enjoy, the story and commentary is both serious and funny. Most of the images that you see are printed as 24” X 36” on canvas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoCekwLhgN0
