$100 price drop on the NEX-5N (Reminder: NEX-5R coming this week)


Three days only before the new Sony NEX-5R announcement and multiple stores are now selling the NEX-5N with a nice $100 discount at Amazon (Click here). Same price drop on the Body only (Click here) and on the Silver kit (Click here).

The NEX-5R will very likely be priced at $699 (with kit lens) and compared to the current NEX-5N it will have a faster AF, Wifi and APP support. Coming on Wednesday. The NEX-6 will be announced in September while I don’t know when Sony will announce the new NEX lenses.


P.S.: Amazon camera ranking here.

(SR5) Hot: Real sketch of the Sony A99 back.

Sometimes I really find crazy stuff in my mailbox. A trusted source sent me a real(!) sketch of the Sony A99 back designed by him. What you see is what you will get with the A99!Basically the almost exactly same back of the Sony A77 (image here). I don’t know how much work he put on this but we all would be glad to receive the sketches from the top and front too…Thanks :)

Stay tuned on SAR: Here is our RSS feed and Twitter stream and the Facebook comunity!

I can now confirm that two new Alpha Lenses will be announced along the A99. These are the new 300mm f/2.8 G SSM II and the already announced new 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 zooms. More lenses like the 50mm prime and 70-200m zooms will be unveiled the next winter (2012-2013).

P.S.: Sonystore US marked the 300mm lens as “No Longer Available”. Some lenses are still in Stock at Amazon (Click here).
