Sony NEX-6 still a bestseller in US: Maybe Sony should make more APS-C E-mount lenses too…

FacebookShare

APS-C E-mount cameras are literally dominating the Amazon mirrorless ranking (list here).

We are all waiting to see the new stuff at Photokina. But in the meantime …for months now(!) the most sold popular Sony camera at Amazon US (Click here to see the ranking) is the Sony NEX-6.
It’s a bit pity that only Sony E-mount FF lenses are about to be announced soon (16-35mm Zeiss, powerzoom lens and the Zeiss Loxia). Sony should really try to support those many APS-C E-mount owners and make some lenses for them too.

P.S.: Of course they can use the FE lenses too, but it’s really not the same thing (increased weight, increased price, missing focal lengths and so on…).

Reminder: Sony US is selling plenty of discounted ref. cameras:
$700 off on the RX1R (Click here).
$80 off on the RX100 (Click here).
$120 off on the A77 with kit lens (Click here).

(SR5) UPDATED: ILCE-QX1 will cost €300 (€450 with 16-50mm lens). It is almost the same size as the QX100.

FacebookShare

On September 3 we will get the next Sony product announcement. And we will see the new QX30 (30x zoom) module and the ILCE-QX1 APS-C E-mount module. I have been told the price of the ILCE-QX1 will be 300 Euro and 450 Euro with 16-50mm lens. The size is about the same of the current QX100 (here one Bay).

Reminder: On Monday/Tuesday Zeiss will announce the new Loxia lens series.
