Don’t know how reliable that info is but the largest worldwide online store Amazon just notified that the NEX-5R will start to be shipped from October 21th (Click here ot visit the product page). Anyway, not many of us seems to have ordered the new camera as it didn’t even manage to reach the top hundred of the mirrorless camera (pre)order ranking (Click here). I guess most of us are waiting for the September 12th announcement when Sony will unveil the NEX-6!
There are many new videos about the NEX-5R. here are some youtube links:
Official Sony ad, The Sony blog presentation, First look at Cnet, First look at Henrys, Hands-on at Digitalcameraworld, German hands-on at Chip.de.
And here is an update list of the preorders (please check AlphaCameraDeals.com for a full updated list!):
Black NEX-5R with kit lens Sonystore DE–UK–FR–IT–ES–NL–SE–FI–CH
Silver NEX-5R with kit lens at Sonystore DE–UK–FR–IT–ES–NL–SE–FI–CH

Important personal note: The next months I will create a lot of new features around my parallell AlphaCameraDeals.com website. The idea is to separate Deals news from SonyAlphaRumors. For now I will list all preorder options ont his website (like for the NEX-5R) If you are interested in getting detailed and localized Sony deals info subscribe the RSS feed and join the Facebook page. Thanks!
Many here on SAR own the superb RX100 camera. If you need a filter adapter for the camera check out the pictures and aluminium solution posted by the [shoplink 13486 ebay]German Photo design (Click here)[/shoplink]. Very smart!
Three days only before the new Sony NEX-5R announcement and multiple stores are now selling the NEX-5N with a nice $100 discount at Amazon (Click here). Same price drop on the Body only (Click here) and on the Silver kit (Click here).
The NEX-5R will very likely be priced at $699 (with kit lens) and compared to the current NEX-5N it will have a faster AF, Wifi and APP support. Coming on Wednesday. The NEX-6 will be announced in September while I don’t know when Sony will announce the new NEX lenses.
P.S.: Amazon camera ranking here.
BHphoto (Click here) made a nice list of the newly launched NEX and Alpha mount rebates. Here are the links to the single lenses:
$25 off on the 35mm NEX macro at BHphoto and Amazon.
$25 off on the 5omm NEX lens at BHphoto and Amazon.
$75 off on the 24mm f/2 SSM at BHphoto and Amazon.
$75 off on the 135mm Sonnar at BHphoto and Amazon.
$100 off on the 16-35mm Zeiss at BHphoto and Amazon.
$75 off on the 16-80mm zoom at BHphoto and Amazon.
$100 off on the 24-70mm zoom at BHphoto and Amazon.
$75 off on the 35mm 1.4 at BHphoto and Amazon.
$75 off on the 70-300mm zoom at BHphoto and Amazon.
$100 off on the 70-400mm zoom at BHphoto and Amazon.
$100 off on the 85mm 1.4 Zeiss at BHphoto and Amazon.
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).
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.
