(SR5) Hot: Sony to announce all the new leaked products on June the 3rd!!!

So, we all saw that pretty nice leaked stuff, like the NEX-C3, the A35, the new NEX flash and the 30mm macro for NEX. And finally I can also tell you WHEN Sony will announce those products! On Friday June 3! You can follow the official announcement on SonyAlphaRumors. Be sure you and your friends will nto miss any rumor join us on Facebook and Twitter and follow our RSS-feed! The big question I cannot answer now is if the Zeiss 24mm f/1.7 will be announced too! Let’s cross the finger!

You can say bye bye to the A33 and NEX-3. Those cameras are now discounted and slowly going out of Stock:
NEX-3 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
A33 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

P.S.:  The more “serious” stuff like the A77 and NEX-7 will be announced in July!

SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct

Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 now listed at “previous models”

We are getting very closer to the NEX announcements! Sony now officially labeled the NEX-3 and suprise suprise the NEX-5 as “Previous Models”! (Check that links at Sony UK). We know the NEX-C3 will be announced within the next couple of weeks but what the NEX-5 replacement is expected to be announced in autumn. Maybe Sony decided to push the NEX-C3 and to stop the production of the NEX-3 and NEX-5. I am now working to find out the exact date of the NEX-C3 announcement. Stay tuned on SAR!!!

Sony NEX-5 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay
Sony NEX-3 atAmazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay

Thanks Wolfram

Sony 30mm macro lens leaked


We all already knew that this lens was coming. And now here it is. The Sony 30mm f/3.5 macro for NEX. Sony Service Canada does list the lens and the french store said the 30mm lens price is 259 Euro. But we can already tell you that’s certainly not the only lens Sony will announce within next couple of weeks More about that soon ;)

P.S.: Sony already made a 30mm but for Alpha mount and with f/2.8 aperture. Check Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Will you buy the macro lens?
