(SR2) Five new NEX lenses at Photokina? (maybe some of them ZEISS?)


Via mirrorlessrumors we learned that Klaus Schroff from Photozone maybe just made a “mistake” and unintentionally revealed that five new Sony NEX lenses will be announced in the next future! As you know he already reviewed the three known NEX lenses (The 16mm, the 18-55mm and the 18-200mm lens).

Inside a dpreview forum post he revealed that: “There’ll be 5 more NEX tests in the near future so we’ll have a better guidance about the quality of these Sony lenses … emoticon - wink

UPDATE: Probably he is testing third party lenses on NEX cameras (using adpaters)?

One more news:
According to Martin Klottig, Marketing Manager of the Camera Lens Division at Carl Zeiss AG they “will present new lenses and, for the first time, accessories at photokina. You’ll have to be a bit more patient to find out exactly what we have in store.

Just a reminder. Few days ago we posted a rumor we received from 2 new sources (also NOT from out trusted sources). According to them 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. Click here to check out all current ZM lenses availability and prices on eBay.

We from SonyAlphaRumors are 100% sure that Zeiss will make lenses for the NEX-system but we don’t know yet if they will show them at Photokina. If you know something about the future ZEISS lenses feel free to contact us using the form on the right! Thanks!

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unkown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!

A roundup of people that doesn’t like the new Sony Alpha cameras…


Everyone from Dpreview to Lumnous Landscape likes the new Sony cameras (epsecially the Translucent A55/A33 pair). But not everyone seems to be happy with the new products. I thought it is good for our readers to read the “different” opinions and arguments. So take it with a grain of salt ok?

The first negative post is from EosHD -> “Dear Sony… The A55 is just not good enough”.

The second is from Sony lover and hacker Vitaly Kiselev on DVXuser -> Sony a33/a55/a569/a580 disaster

They both follow our website so feel free to add your opinion by commenting this post!
