PDN (Click here) reviewed the A77: “Throw in its remarkable ability to capture tack-sharp fast-action HD video and more surprising bells and whistles than an amusement park, and you have a Sony DSLR that should make Canon and Nikon users jealous. When was the last time you could say that?”
Luminous Landsape (Click here) made a video of the NEX-7 (you see it here on top of this post). And Steve Huff (Click here) posted a depth of field comparison. Also the New York Times (Click here) writes about the NEX-7: “This camera is gorgeous. Black metal, like something James Bond might carry. Yet here is, yes, a built-in pop-up flash. It won’t exactly illuminate a football stadium, but it’s fine for subjects up to about eight feet away.”
So many good reviews and no camera! but be patient, Sony is doing a 24 hours job to get back to full production. In January the cameras will be back in store!
The video on top shows you the latest A65 video review form Digitalrev. But there is one good news I have to share. The Sony A65 will be back in Stock on December 9 at Amazon US (Click here). The camera has been stock for two weeks now and I don’t know if that is part of a new Stock of cameras coming out from the new Chomburi factory in Thailand.
P.S: Also the new 16-50mm f/2.8 lens is in Stock at Amazon (Click here).
The probably most interesting of all new reviews has been made by Dearsusans (Click here). The articles name is “Slow food review” and contains plenty of amazing photos. He compared the NEX-5n with his Mamiya 7 which is an amazing camera. I know that because I own one (Click here to see it on eBay). Really worthy to be seen!
If you liked the video I posted on top of the article TheDigitalVisual explains you how to get this cinematic look on the NEX-5n!
Also the big newspaper do like the Sony camera: Sony’s NEX-5N versus Nikon’s J1 at The Wall Street Journal. Guess who wins
Than a short summary of other links: Full review at SonyAlphaLab. Sony NEX-5n vs Nikon D700 High ISO comparison at kimletkeman. Aquatica Announces Housing for Sony NEX-5n (divephotoguide). Thai NEX-5n review at Pantip.
Shopping note: You will not see any price drop soon even for Christmas time. Sony has not enough stock reserve because of the production stop in Thailand. But even the current price-quality balance of the Sony NEX-5n really beats the rest of the mirrorless world (and probably most of the DSLR world). So it gets certainly highly recommended by me!

And where can you find the A77 in Stock? I will post my full shopping daily check list. But if you find the A77 in Stock in some other stores feel free to help other SAR readers by commenting this post with the link to the store! Thanks! And here are all A77 links:
According to The Verge Sony USA COO Phil Molyneux said that the NEX-7 will arrive in January. And Financial Times reports another statement from Phil M.: “We’re furiously working to transfer production back to Japan and into China, so I think we’ll see better availability going into January“. Currently Sony is having a reserve of NEX-C3 and NEX-5n cameras but the NEX-5n stocks could be empty soon!
The last info I got from my top sources said that the A77 will be back in Stock in January and the NEX-7 in February. And yes, Sony underestimated the A77 and NEX-7 production. The cameras got more preorders than they thought and in some countries the A77 and NEX-7 request has been four times higher than expected. I hope that Sony will be able to catch up again the momentum. Really pity for them that they miss the Christmas sales. The A65 and A77 are out of Stock in most countries. Only the new NEX-5n and the lenses will be available by Christmas time. Check out the links to find out what’s available and what not:
