The NEX-5r has been announced almost one year ago (on August 29). And for Sony time this means that a replacement is not very far away. A SAR reader wrote me the following message: “Just heard a bit of news when sent my NEX 5R for repairing. Since my cam has serious damage I consider getting a new one but the official repair company representative here in Northern Europe told me, that to get on my hands on Nex 5R I have to be quick, because they are taking it off production in June.”
Lately I pushed the A-mount rumors but I will soon post some more E-mount rumors too. Keep in mind that the NEX-7 successor, the 85mm f/1.4 and a fast zoom should be announced by end of August!
