(SR2) Little NEX-7m rumor…


An anonymous source just sent me a small rumor about the NEX-7 successor. The name of the camera will be “NEX-7m” and it will feature several improvements like increased max shutter speed, enhanced NR and ISO range, etc.

I hope trusted sources can confirm or deny that rumor. Meantime keep your feet on ground!

P.S.: The Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 lens is in Stock for $999 on eBay US (Click here). Found and notified via Slidoo.

Good Morning…and a Happy new Year! :)


First off…Happy New Year!

I hope you will keep following SAR even in 2013. There will be plenty of new stuff and don’t miss to read my prediction to see what could come this year. And now let’s start with the new years rumors. I had no sleep tonight and worked on the next bunch of rumors. The first thing you should know is that Sony will soon have an announcement right before the CES show (start January 8). But there will be compact cameras only and no, not one of this compact camera will be a more advanced model like the RX100.

I still didn’t get a reliable confirmation but there is a fair chance that new SLT NEX stuff may be announced a couple of weeks later right before the start of the CP+ show in Yokohama (January 31).

Stay tuned on SAR! Subscribe the RSS feed (Click here) and Twitter (Click here) stream and the Facebook fan page (Click here)! And agai…Happy New Year!!!
