(SR4) NEX cameras will come in four colors

I just received a minor but reliable rumor. According to our trusted sources the NEX5 and NEX3 cameras will come in four colors:


Unlike the cameras the lenses are supposed to be sold in the silver-chrome version only. Imagine, blue body and silver lens…doesn’t seem to match!

Sony NEX vs MicroFourThirds size comparison compared the size between the NEX and the GF1 / E-PL1 / E-P2 cameras!
Anyway keep in mind that the NEX images are not real images. But this guys are usually good in “recreating” the camera design based on leaks and rumors. Well done!

(SR3) Small rumors: NEX autofocus speed and fps

I have been asked by many of you to try to get some info about the autofocus speed. I asked around and the answer I got is that the contrast autofocus is very fast. At least as fast as the Panasonic GH1 / GF1 autofocus. But we will have to wait until the official NEX release to be sure of that.
Another question was how many frames per second both cameras do have.
A first rumor I recieved says that the NEX3 will have 5fps and the NEX5 7fps. But I still need to doublecheck that news.
