(SR3) NEX-C3 shipment in early July. Price 549 dollar/Euro

I still don’t know when Sony will officially launch the NEX-C3 but we got new info about the price and availability from new sources. The official price of the NEX-C3 with 18-55mm kit lens will be 549 Dollars/Euro. That’s the exact price of the current (discounted) Sony NEX-3. We have been told that there will be limited shipments in late June/early July. That because of the current production issues in Japan.

Keep following us because there will be new rumors soon. Those are busy weeks! Don’t miss rumors, join us on Facebook and Twitter and follow our RSS-feed!

Price checks:
NEX-3 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

SR3=50% chance it is correct

Sony NEX-VG10 user might be interested to know that you can finally get the Samyang 8mm fisheye lens for NEX on eBay (Click here). It’s sold by the official polish Samyang resellers.
It’s worth to mention that Samyang made also four very good manual lenses for Alpha mount:

Message for our sources

I have a bunch of messages for our sources (AXL, Tip. and the others).

1) I havn’t received any confirmation from other sources about the exact A77 launch date in July. But I am going to post the rumor soon with SR4 value.
2) I received the final price of the A77 with kit lens from three different sources. Last question. What kind lens do you mean? The current 18-55mm or the rumored new constant aperture lens?
3) Can you confirm the 26 May lens announcement? Is the 24mm f/1.7 Zeiss coming too?
4) Some news about the NEX-C3 and A35 possible announcement date?



P.S.: You can use the contact form on the right sidebar to send us anonymous messages. Please be patient. I try to double check rumors before to post them. I want to avoid to post false rumors. Thanks for your understanding

What should Sony learn from the Fuji X100?

Sony delayed the A35 and NEX-C3 announcements and there is still a bit to wait before we can see the new Sony A77 and NEX-7 in July. But also Nikon (a part the Nikon D5100), Canon, Olympus and Panasonic didn’t announce any new camera. The only camera manufacturer that is getting a lot of attentions around the web is Fuji. Since months every website is talking about the Fuji X100. The question I have to all SonyAlphaRumors readers is:

What aspect of the Fuji X100 should Sony take into consideration for future Alpha and NEX cameras? (you can select a maximum of three options)

I think the X100 is an “overstimated” camera. The hybrid viewfinder is a bit a pain to use (see focusing problems) and the fixed lens is quite a limitation if you consider the price of the camera. What I really like is the build quality and the manual controls. But I am curious to see what you think about the X100!


P.S: Check the Fuji X100 price and availability at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
