Hot: Sony talks a bit about their plans in 2012!

I really don’t speak japanese so I have to rely on google translation tool to read the following document: That magazine contains an interview with Sony. And here is what we can expect in 2012:

1) Smaller NEX lenses: Sony confirms what we have reported here on SonyAlphaRumors some time ago. There is a new NEX lens roadmap and it includes smaller lenses (yeah, pancakes!).

2) 100 Megapixel sensor: Sony can do a 100 Megapixel sensor. Now I guess this doesn’t necessary mean there will be a camera with such a sensor. It will be more a “look at my muscles Canon” statement :)

3) electronic shutter: This is a big news and very important technology. I bet this is coming for real at Photokina 2012!

Sony also confirms that the next FF cameras will be SLT (electronic viewfinder). Japanese readers may help me to get a full translation of the text? Thanks!

Sony USA accepting NEX-7 orders! Review conclusions from LL.

You can now buy your NEX-7 body only at SonyStore USA (Click here). UPDATE. No more preorders yet! It will be shipped to you in mid-late January. I have been told that also other Sonystores in Europe will soon ship their first NEX-7 cameras and accept new preorders. And curiously, this will only happen with the body only version. The full kit will not be available until late February! And the first NEX-7 on ebay sold for $3.245,00 (Click here to see it)!!! Yeah, and that’s body only :)
Luminous Landscapes published their final NEX-7 verdict (Click here) and the following statement explains why people pays that crazy price for a NEX-7: “I’ll start this conclusion chapter with my bottom line summary. The NEX-7 is the most exciting camera that I’ve had the pleasure of using in the past five years.

Soon you will see a NEX-5n sensor without AA filter.

The Sony NEX-5n sensor

If you were wondering what the already amazing Sony NEX-5n sensor can do without AA (Anti Aliasing) filter you will soon get the answer. Ricoh will release a new GXR M-mount module which features exactly the same NEX-5n sensor but with removed AA filter. A wonder if there will be any  major difference!
