Going to post a small revolutionary rumor on Monday at 10 am London time.

My sources finally allowed me to post a small rumor that in my opinion is the very first step to a revolution. I can post it on Monday at 10am London time. Do not expect a picture or detailed specs. It’s a small rumor, but when you think about it could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back!

I bet it here, this will start a very long discussion on SAR! So stay tuned!

P.S.: I am often going on mountains, climbing here and there. Sorry if it takes long to answer your mails or allow your comments.

P.P.S.: Just a reminder. Some of you asked me how to support that website. As you can see I don’t use dozens of banners and I don’t get paid by any company to do what I do. All the work you see here is made by me during my free time. If you want to help me to cover the monthly server costs there is an easy way: Click on affiliate links you see on that website like Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay to buy whatever product you want (it doesn’t have to be a camera) and I will earn a small commission from it. You don’t pay any penny more on the items you buy and at the same time you support SonyAlphaRumors without me having to put 100 banners on my website. Cool or not? Thanks :)

(SR5) Sonyservice Canada leaks the new NEX-5E, NEX-VG20 and 55-210mm E-mount lens!

One of our reader (Thanks Clement!) just rechecked the Sonyservice Canada website and found three new codes:
NEX5N (This is probably the new code fot the upcoming new NEX-5E)
NEXVG20 (This should be the Sony NEX-VG10 successor)
SEL55210 (This is the 55-210mm lens for NEX).

Now let’s hope Sony Canada will soon add the new A77 and NEX-7 codes too ;)

(SR4) HOT!!! Is this the first image of the NEX-7?

I just got the link to the following NEX-7 picture! I have been told this is a preproduction version! One of my sources said the image is original but the final model could have some differences!!! As you see the NEX-7 has a rangefinder style a là Fuji X100 (Click here to see that camera)! As you know the NEX-7 will feature the same A77 24 Megapixel sensor and a 3 million dot OLED EVF (it is not a hybrid viewfinder!). It has the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 attached (but that is also a prototype). The camera should cost around $1.200.

UPDATE (Mark explanation):
1) 3 Million dot OLED EVF
2) Hot shoe
3) 24mm f/1.8 ZEISS
4) Flash and the Image preview buttons
5) Pop-Up flash
6) Manual Aperture and Shutter Speed controls?
7) ???
8) ???

Stay tuned on SAR. I am still working to get more info about the A77 pictures leaked yesterday. Don’t miss any rumors. Join us on Facebook, Twitter and follow our RSS-feed!

Do you like the new NEX-7 design?

Patent: Sony has an idea to “fight” against the diffraction limit.

The Megapixel war will never be over. Pixelnumbers will increase and the size of the pixel decrease. One of the downside is that the diffraction limit will get worser and worser. Sony had an idea on how to use a special refractive element positioned between the lens and the sensor. You can read more at Egami (google english translation).
