Rumor correction: ILC-3000 has no In Body stabilization.

Share

There is a correction to report:

The ILC-3000 E-mount cameras has no built-in Image Stabilization. It looks like there was an error on the camera specification list (probably while Sony copied the A-mount camera spec table or so).

Still valid: The ILC-3000 has a brand new 20.1 Megapixel sensor. it will be interesting to see how good the new sensor generation is! The camera costs 300 pounds and is aimed to compete against the Canon Rebel series.

Stay tuned on SAR. The chance is good that Sony will announce the new NEX cameras and lenses at 6-7am London time!

(SR5) Sony Germany creates the ILC-category. Announcement tomorrow at 5-6 am London time!

I know some here didn’t believe Sony could call the new DSLR shaped E-mount camera…”ILC-3000“. But as a proof just click over at Sony Germany. They just added the ILC category in their menu. Actually it’s “ILCE”, the “E” stays for E-mount.

Anyway, we now have seen images and specs of all cameras. At that point I kindly invite you to follow the announcement live on SonyAlphaRumors tomorrow (August 27) at 5-6am London time. As usual I will be here to update you with links to all reviews, news, image samples and preorders.

QX, NEX-FF and A-mount rumors to come after the announcement:
The QX “lens-cameras”will be announced on September 4th (along the Honami Z1). And the most exciting time is still ahead of us. Sony is trying to keep it very secret, but I know the NEX-FF is coming. And let’s hope some A-mount news is on the horizon too. That’s going to be intriguing :)

(SR5) Full E-mount zoom lens specs.

The Korean website Dicahub made this lens size comparison based on the mount side and filter size of the new E-mount zooms. The original Sony leaked file doesn’t really show the lens in the right proportion. As you can see from this image the PZ G lens isn’t that big as on the Sony leaked presentation. And the Zeiss zoom is quite compact.

And these are the full lens specs via Digicameinfo. The new NEX stuff could be announced on Tuesday. Stay tuned on SAR!

 

  • Spec of 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS Vario-Tesser T * E– 16 lenses in 12 groups
    – Minimum focusing distance 0.35m
    – maximum magnification 0.23 times
    – Filter diameter 55mm
    – Total length 75mm, maximum diameter of 66.6mm
