(SR3) Manufacturing problem is cause for the NEX-7 successor launch delay?

Share

Soon Sony will announce the new RX100MKII and maybe a new FF RX and Mobile Cyberhsot camera too. But what about the NEX-7 successor? I just got an info form one source. It’s marked as “SR3” and I ask my trusted sources to check the info (Thanks!).

According to the source the cause of the delay of the NEX-7 successor launch is a manufacturing problem that was discovered with prototype runs of the “NEX 7 replacement camera”. Sony is now looking for an economical solution that does not compromise the camera. There seems to be no ETA yet (no defined release date).

The source also told me a surprising news: Design team focus right now is definitely on mirrorless A-mount cameras, not NEX, as E-mount is seen as a consumer product and A-mount as a top end product.

Thanks to the source!

New Cyberhsot Mobile versus newly announced Samsung S4 zoom.

Share

Sony will soon announce their first smartphone with high quality and large sensor. And it will have to compete against the just announced Samsung S4 zoom. That hybrid camera and phone features a 1:2.3 inch sensor (same size as most compact cameras) and a 10x zoom. That marks the end of the compact camera business. The Samsung S4 zoom and the new Sony Cybershot Mobile will still be very expensive. But the price will go down in future with every new release. In 2-3 years form now almost nobody will buy a “pure” compact camera anymore.

Zeiss now lists the new Sony 50mm f/1.4 SSM lens. And some new image samples!

Share

SAR reader Laszlo (Thanks!) noticed that the new 50F14Z is now shown on the carl zeiss website. As you may remember Sony Japan (Source DC.watch) delayed the launch of the new Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 A-mount lens because of the “exceptional high demand of preorders“. The lens is set to ship in early July according to Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

UPDATE: Some brand new image samples can be seen at Klubkm.pl.

The Zeiss preorders can be taken at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and SonyStore USA (via AlphaCameraDeals). In Europe at Wex UK, Amazon DE and Technikdirekt DE.

Reminder: The brand new Zeiss Touit for NEX are in Stock and shipping at BHphoto (Click here). You can get both! The 12mm lens (Click here) and the 32mm lens (Click here).

(SR4) new Sony camera announcement the 27th of June? RX100MKII and Mobile Cybershot coming?

Share

 

I just got a hint by an anonymous source. The new RX100 MKII should be announced the 27th of June! I have no info yet about other camera or lens release. The new RX Full Frame is likely going to be announced in August.

In these days I also got frequent info from a new source sharing me some info about an “astonishing” Mobile Cybershot camera that will be announced soon. It may be the Honami camera that we talked about for days a couple of weeks ago. It may be that both, the RX100MKII and the Mobile Cybershot will be announced the same day on June 27. This will also be interesting for A and E camera owners because the new Cybershot Smartphone will also use a new JPG engine.

Message to all sources: I got an impressive amount of NEX, A-mount and RX rumors. Please excuse me if It takes time to post them on SAR. I always try to double check info because I got wrong rumors in the past. And I try to be as reliable as possible :) A particular thanks goes to the one source named “untrusted source” (LOL). Wanted to ask him…are you sure about the NEX-FF info? I dind’t get an info from my trusted sources about that!
