UPDATED: Indonesian registered A5000 (ILCE-5000) name is just for the NEX-5t

Share

Lats week the Indonesian agency posted a registration for a Sony A5000 camera. But this isn’t an advanced A3000 model nor a new camera at all. It’s just how Sony names the NEX-5T. So there will be no new A5000!

Note: the A3000 is DSLR styled, the A5000 is NEX styled and the A7/A7r will be OMD styled. It’s all a bit confusing!

(SR5) updated and corrected: The A7 and A7r are weathersealed.

Short update on the new A7 and A7r cameras:

1) Both cameras will not have on sensor stabilization

2) Both cameras are weathersealed! UPDATED: Sorry. I first wrote their are NOT weathersealed but it was a copy and past error from me. They are weathersealed!!!

I am not sure yet but I think more advanced models will come in 2014. The A7 and A7r do sound more like great entry-level E-mount FF cameras.

(SR5) And the NEX-FF names are….A7 and A7r!


a Franken A7 (RX1+NEX-7+EVF) put together by a SAR reader based on the design rumors posted today. Obviously not a picture of the real camera and the real camera will be much nicer :)

 

Sony decided to name all high end cameras as “Alpha“. No matter if these will be real A-mount cameras, E-mount DSLR shaped cameras or more compact E-mount cameras like the RX1 and NEX series. All High End models will be Alpha. That’s why the first two E-mount Full Frame cameras will be named “A7” and “A7r“. Both have exactly the same design (with NEX-7 grip, EVF in the middle and RX1 size). The difference is in the sensor. The A7 has 24MP sensor, more fps and different AF speed. The A7r has a 36MP sensor and less fps (and I have been told a bit “different” AF).

I am collecting your questions and forwarding them to sources. Than I triple check their answer before to post them on SAR. There is really a lot going on in these minutes and hours!

P.S.: Looks like Sony’s final decision to get for a middle EVF design has been taken to keep the size down. And a source said that the Minolta XD7 viewfinder design is similar to the one from the A7/A7r.

(SR5) NEX-FF biggest surprise: Sony decides to go for an Olympus OMD alike design!

The Olympus OMD shape. Something like that can be expected for the E-mount FF camera

There is one big surprise concerning the design of the NEX-FF cameras. Sony had three different prototype designs and instead of going on the classic NEX-7 design they decided to go for the….Olympus OMD alike design! It means the camera has a Full Frame E-mount, has many of the NEX-7 controls and NEX-7 grip…but the viewfinder is in the middle!!! And no, it doesn’t have the design from the A3000! It’s really something new, has just a tiny bit bigger size than the RX1. Both models (cheap and more expensive camera) do have the same design. And as I told you yesterday, the cheap model has a 24MP sensors and the more expensive model has a 36MP sensor.

I keep receiving rumors every hour. Stay tuned on SAR!

P.S.: one of the trusted sources actually saw the NEX-7 designed prototype version with the EVF in the corner. What I am checking now is if that kind of design will come in a future model or not!

(SR5) Cheap NEX-FF has 24MP, High End NEX-FF has 36 MP

I got 100% trustworthy info on the new NEX-FF cameras:

1) The cheap NEX-FF has a 24MP sensor

2) The High end NEX-FF has a 36MP sensor

There are also some small…”surprises” I am working on. Just give me the time to triple check everything because some of the info is really…weird…like the…name! But now I am really 100% sure there will be two E-mount FF models.
