(SR5) More info about the “bodyless” Lens-camera. And a good NEX-FF news.

As I told you end of last week Sony will soon release a revolutionary bodyless Lens camera. It’s basically a lens with integrated sensor and built-in WiFi and NFC. This will allow you to control the “Lens-Camera” via any mobile device. We got some more bits on the camera. There will be two of them:

1) One is the already mentioned “Lens-camera” with RX100MII sensor and  Zeiss lens.
2) The second model will feature a 10xzoom lens with 1/2,3 inch 18 megapixel CMOS sensor.

And I have good news for the E-mount folks. One of the trusted sources that shared info on this Lens-Camera confirmed that Sony is ready to launch the NEX-FF. I will post some specs and lens info soon. Stay tuned on SAR. Massive Sony rumors and news coming the next weeks!
