Share

I got info about a new E-Mount zoom lens. Sony could launch the new 55-150mm f/2.8 G zoom lens in September. it will be announced along the new NEX ASP-C cameras and the 16-xx mm zoom lens. This would be the first high quality and fast mid range zoom for the NEX system. I do not have info about the price but the lens will ship in October-November.

I hope it's...

(SR3) Three APS-C and two FF A-mount mirrorless cameras to come in 2014.

Share

A source sent me the new Sony roadmap and it looks like five new A-mount cameras will hit the stores in 2014. I still don’t know yet if some of these cameras will be already announced this year (for preorders only). Anyway, according to my source there will be three APS-C A-mount cameras and two new FF A-mount cameras. The specs of the A79 can be read on yesterday’s post. The three APS-C cameras should be the A59, A69 and A79. I don’t know yet the names of the two new FF cameras.

I have been told all five cameras are a major leap forward in terms of tech advancements. Everything is hugely improved. let’s hope that what sounds good on paper is also good in reality :)

I am also working on the new NEX-FF and NEX-APS-C roadmap. NEX-5T will definitely come and so the DSLR shaped NEX. I am almost sure the NEX-FF will also arrive this year and maybe the NEX-7 successor too.

I ask all sources to help me out by sending the rumors anonymously by using the contact form on the right sidebar. Avoid to send me name and email address, a plain message does it! And if you want to be ranked as “trusted source” use some kind of nickname so that I can recognize you in future messages. Thanks!
