(SR5) UPDATeD: Sony press release teaser!!!

And now it is official! Sony will announce the new DSLR on August 24! They also say that those are “never-before-seen Sony SLR’s”!!! And since November 2009 SonyAlphaRumors is telling you that those are the new translucent cameras. The semi transparent pellicle allows to have Phase detection during video recording. You can alos move up the transparent mirror (if you don’t want to have the little light loss when using the mirror). Very fast 10fps (frames per second).

UPDATE: We now know the original source of the teaser leak: http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/08/12/sony.to.have.new.alphas.in.two.weeks/

(SR4) Sony training with new DSLR on August 31?

Prime time crew has intercepted an email from a local camera shop regarding training on three new digital slr’s. At least one of these is a pellicle mirror camera. Numerous people within the company have seen and handled it. The training starts on Tuesday August 31. The email also says that the new cameras will be introduced on August 22nd (but we from SonyAlphaRumors do not know if that is a public event or just a private introduction for dealers).

Thanks Primetimecrew!

(SR3) New E-mount Zeiss lenses for E-mount to be shown at Photokina in September?

According to two new sources (so not a certain rumor!) Sony will show new Zeiss lenses for E-mount at Photokina in September. The sources couldn’t tell me if Sony will only show or also release the lenses. The design of the lenses will be based on current ZM lenses. [shoplink 3255]Click here to check out all current ZM lenses availability and prices on eBay[/shoplink].

Please keep in mind that the rumor is not from our known sources. We are trying to get some reliable infos from them. But we from SonyAlphaRumors are 100% sure that Zeiss will make lenses for the NEX-system. The question is only when they will make it and what lens will come. If you know something about the future ZEISS lenses feel free to contact us using the form on the right! Thanks!

Let us know what lens you are going to buy (you can also select them all if you have the $$$):
