Sony NEX-5n AF speed improvement test with new firmware. NEX-7 in Stock status.


Our reader David (Thanks!) made this very interesting AF speed comparison between the NEX-5n 1.01 and 1.00 firmware. He tested the speed on both 18-55mm and 16mm lenses and as you can see the speed improvement is significant!

The firmware is available here at Sony UK (or select another country). The NEX-5n here at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

Good news! The NEX-7 body and the kit version with the 18-55mm black lens are now in Stock in any stores. Here is a selection:
USA: Amazon (limited shipments from March 5th), BHphoto (Released in limited quantity),
Europe Amazon Germany (Click here), Amazon France (Click here), Jessops (Click here), Amazon UK (Click here), Warehouseexpress (Click here).
