I am getting more and more feedback about the NEX-7 successor.
1) First of all many sources confirmed that this is the only interchangeable camera to come this year! As you know the new Sony CEO imposed a radical change in the roadmap. While this didn’t affect too much the A and E Lens roadmap it completely revamped the A-mount world. But it seems that also the NEX-7 successor went through some changes. First of all the small NEX-7n udpate expected to come in Spring had been delayed.
2) A trusted source told me that Sony decided to go change some more “things” on the next NEX-7 successor. First of all it will not be named “NEX-7n” anymore. It will have a new name.
3) A new source told me that this will be Sony’s first camera not having the Anti Aliasing filter. And let’s see if this will also be the first camera with the new JPEG engine we could see on the soon to be announced “Honami” Smartphone with large 1/1,5 inch sensor.
In summary, the NEX-7 successor is going ti be announced in Summer, it will ship from October and is expected to have some new features and a new name (no more NEX-7n). I am still uncertain about the final specs and I hope I can receive some reliable rumors soon. Thank you sources ;)
