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

Share

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.!

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=fake rumor (1% chance the rumor will become real)
SR2=rumor from unknown and unreliable source (10-20% chance the rumor will become real)
SR3=a rumor unknown source or sources which sounds realistic (20-50% chance the rumor will become real)
SR4=rumor from our trusted sources (50-70% chance the rumor will become real)
SR5=rumor from many of external and internal sources (70-90% chance the rumor will become real)

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

Share

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!
