An anonymous source just sent me a small rumor about the NEX-7 successor. The name of the camera will be “NEX-7m” and it will feature several improvements like increased max shutter speed, enhanced NR and ISO range, etc.
I hope trusted sources can confirm or deny that rumor. Meantime keep your feet on ground!
P.S.: The Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 lens is in Stock for $999 on [shoplink 16295 ebay]eBay US (Click here)[/shoplink]. Found and notified via Slidoo.
