Nikon announces the D7100. Time to see the new A7x!

Today Nikon announced the new 24 megapixel D7100 (spes on Amazon). It’s a nice camera with no Anti Aliasing filter and plenty of new features. It puts again a lot of pressure on the Sony SLT cameras. Sony is going to announce the new A7x this summer and I hope the new generation of Sony sensors will at least catch up with the quality of the new Nikon! And for that they will probably have to get rid of the AA filter too.

First NEX-6 book and great NEX-6 deal.

I remember the day when Sony launched the NEX-7 many of you were saying, damn, I would love that camera having less Megapixels and being cheaper. And Sony actually listened to you and made it real. If you won the camera you may be interested to know that Jerod Foster now wrote a NEX-6 book that can be preordered at Amazon (Click here).

The camera itself got a $100 discount along other NEX cameras (Click here to see the delas page). But today SAR reader Jacob found an almost unbelievable deal where you can get an additional $100 rebate. You can buy the NEX-6 for around $670 in two different kits at eBay US:  [shoplink 16950 ebay]Kit one (Click here)[/shoplink] and [shoplink 16951 ebay]Kit two (Click here)[/shoplink].

Now let’s see how that new NEX-7 successor will be. Rumored to come in a few months but still working on the specs (all I know is that it has a new sensor).

Bower 24mm for Sony discounted.

The Bower 24mm f/1.4 for Sony just got a $200 discount at BHphoto (Click here). Some of you may say…who the heck is Bower? Don’t worry it’s just Samyang trying to fool you again :)

Samyang is using different brand names in different countries: In USA Rokinon, Samyang, Opteka, Bower and in Europe: Samyang, Rokinon, Walimex, Falcon, Vivitar. So don’t be worried. This is a great quality lens! Just read the final conclusion from the Photozone review (Canon mount version): “It may be a bit embarrassing for the original manufacturers but the Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS UMC manages to produce a quality similar to its roughly double priced counterparts.

By the way, their new  24mm tilt-shift lens should be released in March!

RX100 price drops in Europe (and some deals in USA too).

Many times I get the question if there will be a replacement or a second RX100 model. I really have no info yet but SAR readers noticed a price drop in European stores like the 100 Euro off at Amazon Germany (Click here) and Pixmania France (Click here). In US prices are the same a part of $50 off deal on [shoplink 16882 ebay]eBay US (Click here)[/shoplink]. To see more RX100 sub $600 offers and to get notified when there will be new auctions just save this Slidoo eBay search.

It’s just my guess but I don’t think there will be a R200 or whatever yet. I epxect a RX10 first :)
