Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 now listed at “previous models”

We are getting very closer to the NEX announcements! Sony now officially labeled the NEX-3 and suprise suprise the NEX-5 as “Previous Models”! (Check that links at Sony UK). We know the NEX-C3 will be announced within the next couple of weeks but what the NEX-5 replacement is expected to be announced in autumn. Maybe Sony decided to push the NEX-C3 and to stop the production of the NEX-3 and NEX-5. I am now working to find out the exact date of the NEX-C3 announcement. Stay tuned on SAR!!!

Sony 30mm macro lens leaked


We all already knew that this lens was coming. And now here it is. The Sony 30mm f/3.5 macro for NEX. Sony Service Canada does list the lens and the french store said the 30mm lens price is 259 Euro. But we can already tell you that’s certainly not the only lens Sony will announce within next couple of weeks More about that soon ;)

P.S.: Sony already made a 30mm but for Alpha mount and with f/2.8 aperture. Check Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Will you buy the macro lens?

(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.
