(SR5) Good news! Sony will present the new Zeiss 24mm f/2 next Tuesday!

Carl Zeiss lenses launched the message on Facebook!

Sony will present the new Distagon T* 24mm F2 ZA SSM next Tuesday. It is intended to appeal to experienced photographers looking for a large-aperture wide-angle lens of real distinction.
The Distagon T* 24mm F2 ZA SSM (SAL24F20Z) features the acclaimed Carl Zeiss Distagon design and rounds out the existing Planar (SAL85F14Z) and Sonnar (SAL135F18Z) models also developed in conjunction with Carl Zeiss. It functions as a wide-angle 24mm lens on full-frame cameras with 35mm sensors, or as a 36mm equivalent lens ideal for general use on cameras with APS-C sensors. Jointly developed with Carl Zeiss, it features the highly-regarded Carl Zeiss Distagon retro-focus lens configuration designed for wide-angle lenses.

Good news! I hope that it will soon be available for preorder!

By the way…SonyAlphaRumors is also on Facebook (Click here)

(SR5) Sony revolution part two: 4 completely new Alphas to be unveiled on late August!


Yes I know, since the Sony NEX camera announcement we didn’t post a lot of Alpha camera news and rumors. But this is about to change! Many of our readers complained Sony because they were lacking behind Canon in the DSLR segment. Good High-ISO performance, video recording are two of the most requested new features for future Sony Alpha cameras. Today SonyAlphaRumors can bring you the good news that Sony will soon unveil the second revolution (after the NEX announcement it’s time for the DSLR cameras!)

There will be a very important press release by end of August (should be between 23 and 31 of August…we don’t know the exact data yet).
1) Sony will introduce the two “translucent” cameras, the A55 (16MPX) and A33 (14MPX) -> (ultra fast autofocus during videorecording, very fast fps)
2) Sony will introduce two new Sony A5xx cameras with ExmorHD sensor. The higher-level camera will also be able to take 3D pictures (and it comes with GPS)
3) Many new lenses. Many current kit-lenses will be updated. The new Zeiss 24mm f/2.0 and Sony 500mm beast will finally come to market.
4) New NEX accessories are expected to be announced (electronic viewfinder???)

More about that cameras and lenses will be published on SonyAlphaRumros during the next days and weeks…so keep following us! (on Facebook or/and Twitter or/and RSS feed

For those of you waiting for the A7xx, A850/A900 firmware upgrade and new Fullframe cameras. Sony seems to feel your pressure and they are working to release them sooner than expected. But I don’t believe you will see the A7xx or new Fullframe camera at Photokina. The firmware upgrade is another story, I hope they will manage it to solve the programming issue which is the cause of the delay.

I know guys, Sony is sometimes very slow in releasing good products but I do believe that all those cameras will bring real and big tecnology improvements!

One more thing -> To make our site grow and become better we need your little help:
1) Send us rumors and news
We are getting closer to Photokina! When you find interesting news-rumors-reviews that we didn’t post help us and send us the link to sonyalpharumors@gmail.com.
We can keep you anonymous of course. If you want to feel safe when sending rumors you can also use the contact form on the right sidebar. It doesn’t store your IP-address and you can avoid to give me your name and email.
2) Link to us
Many websites do copy rumor/news without linking to us. I already saw 3-4 website which do claim that a certain rumor is from their sources but in fact they are “stealing” the rumor from SonyAlphaRumors. So please link to us :)
3) Help us to cover our server and redesign costs
If all works fine in less than one month we will have a new designed website (we hired a designer for that) + Every mount we have a small ammount of server costs to cover. We do not ask you for donations. The best way to help us is by using our links to amazon-adorama or bhphoto (or redcoon-pixmania if you are located in Europe) when you do shopping.

Currently you have to pay $649.99 for the NEX-5 + 16mm combo and add other $299.99 for the 18-5mm lens. That makes $949.
With the new offer which will start very soon you will pay -$150 less for the whole package!
