With the recent price drops the NEX-7 is again back on the top of the most sold mirrorless camera list at Amazon (here is the ranking). So is that the right time to buy the camera? Nope!
Trusted sources told us that the new NEX-7n is going to be announced in one month and it will be available in stores by May. The new NEX-7n will look almost the same of the current NEX-7 but feature major changes inside the body. Every aspect has been improved and the main goal from Sony was to outperform the top MFT model like the Panasonic GH3 and Olympus OMD. Sensor, viewfinder and autofocus have been improved. I am working on the specs right now. And there may be some new E-mount lens too (like the Zeiss zoom).
Meantime keep in mind: Next Monday (Feb 25th) Sony will announce the new A58 and NEX-3n and three A-mount lenses (including the Zeiss). You should be online at 6-8am London time to follow my live coverage of the new products with links to reviews and tests. And one month after we will have an even bigger NEX related announcement with the new NEX-7n and probably some new high quality lenses. The A77 successor will come right after the NEX-7n.

P.S.: Thanks to all sources sending me the NEX-7n info. Give me some time to double check them before I post them on SAR. And you may help me out on the new E-mount lens info too? Thanks!
