Sony USA accepting NEX-7 orders! Review conclusions from LL.

Share

You can now buy your NEX-7 body only at SonyStore USA (Click here). UPDATE. No more preorders yet! It will be shipped to you in mid-late January. I have been told that also other Sonystores in Europe will soon ship their first NEX-7 cameras and accept new preorders. And curiously, this will only happen with the body only version. The full kit will not be available until late February! And the first NEX-7 on ebay sold for $3.245,00 (Click here to see it)!!! Yeah, and that’s body only :)
Luminous Landscapes published their final NEX-7 verdict (Click here) and the following statement explains why people pays that crazy price for a NEX-7: “I’ll start this conclusion chapter with my bottom line summary. The NEX-7 is the most exciting camera that I’ve had the pleasure of using in the past five years.

Full NEX-7 preorders list.These are all search links. Some stores may not have the NEX-7 for preorder at all: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

Soon you will see a NEX-5n sensor without AA filter.

The Sony NEX-5n sensor

If you were wondering what the already amazing Sony NEX-5n sensor can do without AA (Anti Aliasing) filter you will soon get the answer. Ricoh will release a new GXR M-mount module which features exactly the same NEX-5n sensor but with removed AA filter. A wonder if there will be any  major difference!

P.S.:

POLL: Select your future A77 firmware upgrade must have features.

Share

It’s time for you to select the most needed new features and fixes that should be implemented in future A77 firmware upgrades. I summed your requests and tried to make an easy overview of your suggested changes. You guys gave a terrific long list of new features and bug fixes (Click here to read your comments). I choose to sum the display your most requested only because otherwise the list would have become incredibly long. This is not a scientific test! It should only give a very general idea about what Sony should do more urgently.

So while almost all you features and bug fix suggestion were interesting let’s vote the ten only of them that Sony should absolutely do now!

Do you like the new Sony A7III ?

One more private note: By the time you are reading this I am starting my three days mountain trip. I will stay between 2500 and 3500 meter for two nights. I don’t know if I can have Internet access with my iPhone in these days. I scheduled a couple of news that will get online between now and Sunday. Hope to come back alive ;) I am writing this because some comments awaiting for moderation will need some time to be approved. Plus emails can be answered on late Sunday only.
