The official note from Sony Japan.

Sony Japan forgot to mention that also the A7s got an official firmware update (can be seen here on Sony US). At the time of writing als the few Sony Europe stores I have checked do not display the firmware update info for the A7s…

(SR1) Zeiss Ikon (made by Sony) coming late 2014.

FacebookShare

This is one of the most curious (and highly unlikely to happen) rumors I received the last couple of weeks:

“Sony/Zeiss manufactured by Sony will release a FF camera similar to the 35mm Ikon (here on eBay). No optical viewfinder. Will be announced before the end of the year. Manual controls. No REAR LCD!!!”

I certainly would like Zeiss to make some “retro” styled E-mount camera. But I really don’t think Zeiss will do that…
