(SR3) Rumors about a triple A-mount lens update.

Share

After all these NEX and E-mount news here comes a new A-mount rumor :)

Dyxum forum member TrainerKen wrote: “A couple weeks ago the Sony’s regional rep put on an event where multiple units of RX1 and RX100’s were provided for people to try out… I was one of the participants… Anyway, that night I asked him about the rumor of the new Sony 70-200G, and he did say a new one is coming, along with a revamped CZ135 and CZ85. They will have SSM and weather sealing

I can confirm that a 70-200mm  G lens update is on schedule for this year (maybe coming along the A77 successor this summer). But I am not sure yet about the CZ135  and CZ85. I will ask my sources if they confirm or deny the update for the two Zeiss.

Links to check price and specs of the three current A-mount lenses:
70-200mm G at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
Zeiss 135mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay
Zeiss 85mm at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!

(SR4) NEX-7n launch postponed!

According to three trusted sources Sony decided to postpone the NEX-7n launch. The new launch date is not set yet but I have been told it’s not that far away. I don’t know the reason why they delayed it…but I hope to have some more details soon.

UPDATE: Of course Sony itself hasn’t announced a NEX-7n release date yet so this isn’t an “official” delay. It’s all based on rumors we get from our sources :)

Very important: Back in late 2012 Sony removed the SLT-FF high end model from the 2013 roadmap. And now they delayed the NEX-7n. Sounds like Sony is slowing down the roadmap to convoy resources on the FF-NEX development. But that’s just my easy and probably unjustified guess.
