My two cents about the A7xx, A9xx and Sony firmware

Share

Dear readers, I know you want me to find some rumors about the Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700Sony A700 successor, about the next Fullframe camera and the Sony A850/A900 firmware update. I am working on it. We got some small rumors but we need confirmations before to post it on SonyAlphaRumors. What I can tell you now is:

1) I didn’t receive any rumor that would lead me to believe that the Sony A700 successor is going to be announced at Photokina. But the good news is that it seems that Sony is working hard to deliver the camera as soon as possible, they are definitely feeling the pressure made by the Alpha Folks!
2) We received some rumors from unknown sources about the Sony A950. But I do not expect any new fullframe camera in 2010. I am one of those guys who is dreaming a A950 with ExmorHD sensor :)
3) Sony is still struggling with the Sony A850/A900 firmware update. Let’s hope they will manage it to solve the programming issues!

Reminder: Keep in mind that all those infos I am writing here are “rumors” There is nothing official, and no info came from Sony itself.

Would you consider to buy a Batis 18mm f/2.8 lens?

Sony NEX cameras in Stock almost everywhere (in Stock status check)

Share


The first place to check for availability is http://www.sonystyle.com. The in Stock status does change depending from the country you live. We have seen that the NEX3 is in Stock almost everywhere and the NEX5 only in few countries.

Let’s also check other big stores:
US -> Amazon has the NEX3 in Stock. Also BHphoto has the NEX-3 in Stock. And where is the NEX-5? Only Ritz camera does have the black model in Stock!
EUROPE -> The most lucky guys are our friends from UK and France! Amazon UK has the black and silver NEX5 in Stock and the same cameras are in Stock at Amazon France. Sorry german folks, you still have to wait on Amazon Germany
JAPAN -> As usual they get the hot stuff before anybody else: Amazon Japan has almost everything in Stock!
