(SR2) Some possible RX2 zoom lens specs.


I am very confident we will soon get a new RX camera with curved sensor and 35mm f/1.8 Zeiss lens. But according to an anonymous (and new source) there could be a second RX FF camera with a zoom lens and “classic” non curved sensor. He says the new RX2 will feature the same A7r 36 MP sensor and have a 35-70mm f/2.8 compact zoom lens.

Like I said, this is a new source so take it with a grain of salt. As a side note: Sony itself said it’s very difficult to design zoom lenses for a curved sensor so that could be the reason why such a camera still uses the normal flat sensor.

Something is changing? DSLR sales going down. Mirrorless sales going slighty up.

Well, if you look at that chart posted by Personal View you will notice a big change is going on in the system camera market. DSLR sales are dropping while mirrorles system camera are holding their ground. The data is based on the sales from Japanese camera manufacturers (Source: CIPA). It may explain why Sony is betting high on their mirrorless system and is a bit less “engaged” on the A-mount front. Still, there is a lot to do to make that mirrorless sales line make growth further…
