Sony A57 in Stock at Amazon (and so the NEX-7).

The new Sony A57 is right now in Stock at Amazon (Click here to grab it) and is the most sold Sony DSLR camera of the moment (here is the ranking). And both, the NEX-7 body only (Click here) and the NEX-7 witk kit lens (Click here) are also in Stock. And that is also the camera that makes it into the top 20 of all sold digital cameras, compact, mirrorless and DSLR.

P.S.: New Sony cameras will be announced soon. I am working to find out the right announcement date!

NEX-7 concept film (NEX-7 back in Stock again at Amazon)

Cinematicz used the NEX-7 to shoot that commercial! What’s really interesting is to read his story about how it was to work with the NEX-7: http://vimeo.com/40049385. !

P.S.: Whenever Amazon has the NEX-7 in Stock it gets sold out after a few hours. So if you need a NEX-7 grab it now:
NEX-7 body only (Click here).
NEX-7 with 18-55mm kit lens (Click here).
More NEX-7 in Stock status links: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

USA: Sony 50mm will ship in 4-7 weeks only.

The high request of the lens (or the low production capability of Sony) are making the 50mm almost impossible to find in US stores. According to Amazon (Click here) this lens will ship within 4-7 weeks only. As long as I see this kind of problems I remain worried that Sony may has to push forward some other new NEX lens announcement. I hope I am wrong…

Check more 50mm pre order options at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

UPDATE: The NEX-7 body and the kit version is back in Stock and sold by Amazon itself (Click here).

Sony NEX-7 back in Stock at Amazon (and NEX-7 versus markIII comparison)

A couple of NEX-7 cameras are right now in Stock at Amazon (Click here). And every time it is in Stock it quickly jumps on position one of the mirrorless sales ranking.

And Cameralabs (Click here) made a short NEX-7 versus Canon markIII image comparison: “Ultimately I’d call their real-life resolving power at 100 ISO as being essentially the same, and while that may not come as a huge surprise given their similar sensor resolutions, it remains a great result for the NEX-7 considering its considerably lower price tag – not to mention its considerably smaller body too.”  Surprised?

New Sony and Sigma lens rebates. Sony HX9V beats the D800 in sales number!

New NEX-7 review:
Not that we really need to see any more review anymore as we already know the NEX-7 (many) strengths and (few) flaws. But Digitalcamerainfo (Click here) posted such a detailed test with over 25 pages(!) we absolutely have to reward them with a big link to their website :)

Sony NEX-7 in Stock at Amazon. New FS-100 and Sigma 30mm reviews!

While the Sony sensor powered Nikon D800 is undoubtedly the king of the DSLR sales (Click here), the NEX-7 is the most sold mirrorless camera every time it gets back in Stock at Amazon (Click here to grab it now). And even when it comes to the overall camera sales Sony is on the top list with the….HX9V! I guess Sony is doing a great business right now with their digital camera and sensor sales! Let’s hope this will push them to make more products!

Meantime Mike Kobal (Click here) reviewed the new Sigma 30mm lens on his NEX-7 camera. As you know during the last days we posted many reviews from Photozone where we saw that the NEX-7 requires high quality optics to get out the best from the 24 Megapixel sensor. The image samples shown by Mike are actually looking surprisingly good for a lens that costs $199 only at BH (Click here)! Mike writes: “I never expected this little lens to perform at such a high level-reason enough for this quick test.

A couple of days before the final NEX-FS700 announcement Luminus Landscape (Click here) posted the review of the current NEX-FS100 camera: “There’s little doubt in my mind that it is currently the best value in a Super 35mm video camcorder and very competitive with cameras costing 2–3 times as much in terms of image quality.
