If you were wondering what the already amazing Sony NEX-5n sensor can do without AA (Anti Aliasing) filter you will soon get the answer. Ricoh will release a new GXR M-mount module which features exactly the same NEX-5n sensor but with removed AA filter. A wonder if there will be any major difference!
Someone is trying to make some extra money by selling the first NEX-7 camera on eBay (Click here). I am curious to see how much people is willing to spend for that camera! My guess is that the final price will be around $2100 (almost double the official price!).
Some other news: You can download the full NEX-7 manual at http://richardrook.nl/nex-7/nex-7manual_eng.pdf (Thanks Richard). And the very first NEX-7 books are coming out in January/February. At Amazon Germany (Click here) and is written by Michael Nagel. And at Amazon US (Click here) a book written by David Busch.
If you find any other stores accepting preorders on that lens feel free to comment this post with a link to it! Thanks!
UPDATE: There are also specials on Sigma lenses again at Adorama (Click here).
It’s time for you to select the most needed new features and fixes that should be implemented in future A77 firmware upgrades. I summed your requests and tried to make an easy overview of your suggested changes. You guys gave a terrific long list of new features and bug fixes (Click here to read your comments). I choose to sum the display your most requested only because otherwise the list would have become incredibly long. This is not a scientific test! It should only give a very general idea about what Sony should do more urgently.
So while almost all you features and bug fix suggestion were interesting let’s vote the ten only of them that Sony should absolutely do now!
One more private note: By the time you are reading this I am starting my three days mountain trip. I will stay between 2500 and 3500 meter for two nights. I don’t know if I can have Internet access with my iPhone in these days. I scheduled a couple of news that will get online between now and Sunday. Hope to come back alive I am writing this because some comments awaiting for moderation will need some time to be approved. Plus emails can be answered on late Sunday only.
The european and american release of the new 50mm f/1.8 lens for NEX has been delayed til mid February. Many Sonystores (like Germany) are now reporting the new availability date. But the lens is already in Stock in asian stores like Amazon in Japan.
BHphoto still says the lens will be available in December but Sonystore USA sent the following note to current 50mm preorders: “We would like to inform you we are experiencing a delay with your Sony order. The following item SEL50F18 has been rescheduled to ship on 03/02/2012.“
