(SR2) Primetimecrew says that Sony is developing a 30mm f/1.8 lens and a new EVF for the NEX system.

It is the first time that I read that website so I can’t tell you how reliable their rumors are. But according to primetimecrew.wordpress.comSony is currently developing an EVF as well as a 30mm f1.8.”

We know that Sony is working on a new EVF (OLED?). But we didn’t hear anything about a 30mm prime lens.

Thanks Kris W.!

(SR5) Firmware update for Sony Alpha cameras delayed again (because of unexpected issues)

As you know we months ago we told you that Sony was working on a new firmware update for current Sony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony Alpha cameras. We expect the firmware to improove the ISO-performance (The same improovement we have with the new Image Data Converter).

Months ago we received rumors (from known reliable sources) that the firmware should be released in March. Than we learned that they delayed the release until May. And now the same sources (and I repeat they are very reliable!) sent me an email saying that the release has been postponed again. All I can tell you is that “…many alphas were wrecked after loading FW 2.0Beta…“. And we have to wait for Sony to fix the problem.

Pleas Sony…fix it as soon as possible!

David Kilpatrick “predictions”

The very known Alphamount “guru” David Kilpatrick wrote down a mix of rumors-speculations:

1) “Don’t buy any current Alpha mount lenses, as the next year will see revisions to the existing designs, of that I am sure.”

2) “The Alpha 7XX (750?) will have 1080i video and exactly the same sensor as the NEX5/3. It will not have Quick View live view, but an update to MF Focus Check Live View incorporating Contrast Detect focusing exactly as in the NEX5. The optical viewfinder will be comparable to the A700, and it will have SSS.

3) “new 16-80mm with SSM and improved overall build quality.This lens will also be totally compatible with the NEX and Alpha adaptor.

4) “Two other lenses which must be revised are the 11-18mm (replaced with a 10-24mm SAM) and the 18-250mm (replaced with an 18-270mm SAM OSS). They will also replace the Sony 75-300mm with an SSM OSS 70-300mm f/4-5.6 if they stick with Tamron. And I think they will ad the 60mm f/2 Tamron macro to the Sony range as a SAM lens.”
