Amazon deal on current NEX (if you don’t want to wait for the new ones)

So, we saw the new NEX-5R and NEX-6 cameras and the E-mount FF cameras will arrive in 2013 only. So if you still want a NEX camera now and don’t have time to wait for the NEX-5R and NEX-6 than you may take the chance to grab the latest $100 bundle offer on Amazon (Click here).

The only bad news is that the Zeiss 24mm for NEX is still not avialable and you can get it only by buying a huge $400 extra via third party resellers on Amazon (Click here).

NEX-EA50 preorders at BHphoto (and catching up with some news)

The last Full Frame NEX rumor may overshadowed the NEX-EA50 release :) Time to give you some new link to the new camcorder:
1) Preorder, Price and Specs are now up at BHphoto (Click here). Expected availability is Ocotber 15th
2) Link to the full overview at Sony UK.
3) A first video with…le’ts be honest…terrible music is up on Youtube.

What I am still missing is the new 18-200mm Powerzoom price info. Did you find it? Would be nice to know if we NEX (3/5/7) owners can use and buy this lens for our NEX cameras.

Some are really great lenses and you may grab them now!

Sony A77 price falls at $1238 for the body, at $1819 for the kit. Rokinon for NEX now shipping.

This is now the lowest price I have ever seen for the A77. You cna get it for $1,838 with 16-50mm kit lens at Amazon (one left). And for $1,238 you can buy the A77 body only again via third party reseller at Amazon (plenty of them in Stock). Just a reminder. The A77 successor will arrive in mid-late 2013 only. And no other APS-C SLT model will be announced this year. So these price drops have nothing to do with a possible replacement.

Meantime the new Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens for NEX is now in Stock at BHphoto (Click here) and for $50 more at Amazon (Click here).

The RX100 remains a hotseller at Amazon US (here is the ranking). It’s also within the top 20 at Amazon UK (Click here).
