Sony NEX-5R to ship from October 21. For now NEX-5N beats the NEX-5R in USA (pre)orders.

Share

Don’t know how reliable that info is but the largest worldwide online store Amazon just notified that the NEX-5R will start to be shipped from October 21th (Click here ot visit the product page). Anyway, not many of us seems to have ordered the new camera as it didn’t even manage to reach the top hundred of the mirrorless camera (pre)order ranking (Click here). I guess most of us are waiting for the September 12th announcement when Sony will unveil the NEX-6!

The “older” NEX-5N is many times more sold than the newer NEX-5R because of the $100 discount at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto(Click here).

Zeiss launches new CP.2 E-mount Full Frame lenses..right in time for the FF NEX camcorder!

Share

Last week I reported how Sony will announce an E-Mount Full Frame camcorder on September 12th. It’s the VG900 and will be priced a little bit above 3.000 Euro/Dollars. Today Zeiss announced E-mount lenses that will cover the full Full Frame sensor size! With Full Frame I mean the standard photographic size of 36x24mm!

The two lenses announced are:
The CZ.2 70/200/T2.9 E -> Click here to get a shock on the price :)
The CP.2 25/T2.1 -> more info at Zeiss homepage

The A99, the NEX-6, the VG900, all new Alpha and E-mount lenses will be announced on September 12th afternoon (London time).
