SAL 300mm f/2.8 discontinued.

Sony Japan marked the SAL 300mm f/2.8 as “discontinued”. Don’t know if a successor will be announced soon. Not everyone needs a $7,000 lens (that is the price at Amazon).

Lot of High end NEX and NEX lens rumors work…

This is just a short message to thank all anonymous sources sending me info about the Sony stuff coming in late August/early September. It looks like a high end NEX is really coming and so many more NEX lenses. I have some questions for all anonymous sources:

1) When is the NEX-5F and 16-50mmG pancake zoom going to be announced?
2) How many NEX lenses are coming this year? A source said “a lot” but a number would be welcome :)
3) What’s the final name of the 24 megapixel FF SLT camera?
4) Can you confirm the rumored 50mm f/1.2 Zeiss and 70-200mm G lens release?

Thanks! :)

Sony RX100 now the most sold camera at Amazon US.

I think this is the first time ever I see a Sony camera ruling the overall camera ranking at Amazon (Click here to check it out). The ranking includes all cameras, compact, mirrorless and DSLR!

(SR4) There will be no other SLT APS-C camera this year (A77 successor in 2013)

Sources told us that we very likely will not see the light of any new APS-C model this year. For now the A77 successor is scheduled for a 2013 release. Photokina in September will be focused on the release of the new NEX and Full Frame Cameras and Lenses. We already had a first price drop on the current SLT APS-C models and more price drops should arrive this winter.

Meantime all SLT cameras got an $50 discount:

David Pogue (NYT) about the RX100: “No photos this good have ever come from a camera this small.”

Picture from CNET.

David Pogue from the New York Times (Click here) really likes the new Sony RX100 and writes: “And if you care at all about your photography, you’ll thank Sony for giving the camera industry a good hard shove into the future.“. I know David for a long time and I dont’ remember another such positive review of a camera!
