(SR4) A77 price, 16-50mm lens and Zeiss E-mount lenses rumors from a good source


One of my good sources sent me a new message to post on SonyAlphaRumors (I rewrote the text):
Hi Andrea, the price of the A77 body ($900-1200, close to the Canon 60D) could be correct. I can confirm the focal length of the new A77 kit lens (16-50mm) but not the aperture f/2.8. The naming of the A77 is not final yet! At the moment Sony is working close with Zeiss Germany (they had a lot of meetings in 2011). We will see some new lenses (for e-mount to) in near future… May directly from Zeiss? Greetings from XXX ;-)

Thanks XXX!

A second very good(!) source told us that while is true that Zeiss will focus on fullframe lenses for Sony there are still two APS-C lenses planned for release in 2011-2012! So the new rumored 16-50mm kit lens should be real!

So we are getting closer to some exciting new announcements. NEX-C3 and E.mount lenses in April and a few months after the A77 and new lenses.
