Sony News and Hot Sony Items Finally In Stock!!

818649

Sony is working diligently on trying to come out with the most advanced cameras on the market, but sometimes I think they are working to hard!  Courtesy of SonyAlphaRumors.com, Sony is planning on releasing another new camera to replace the a35 with the a37. I already mention the A57 a few days ago so it’s pretty clear Sony is moving incredible fast from one model to the next. I’m not exactly sure why this is, but it would stand to reason that the 1st Generation SLT’s had some weaknesses that got ironed out, and Sony wants to get better quality products out there asap. If this is the case, It’s great for those who have not purchased anything yet, but sorry for those who have I guess?  Hopefully they will announce the new cameras and the re-lease dates so we can plan accordingly for our upgrades and/or purchases.

I really wish Sony would dedicate more staff or engineers to lens development. I read this on almost every Sony forum, blog, and news site. Sony needs lenses, the Nex cameras are great, but they still need a ton of lenses to grab a firm hold on the market. Not to mention keeping customers from bailing and going to the competition. Luckily SOny’s are much better than most of the cometition, so that is not an issue. The New Fuji X-Pro-1 looks pretty nasty though Sony!! ;)

Sony E-Mount Lenses in Stock Soon!!

Good news on the Sony E-mount lens front! The Sony E-Mount 55-210mm Lens and the 50mm f/1.8 Lens should be in stock on Feb. 25th, but both lenses are currently available for Pre-Order, so it makes sense to just get on the list if you want the lens as soon as possible!

On another note, I mentioned that Sony is raising their prices the other day. Well it’s coming up quick and I just wanted to remind you it’s April 1st the new prices take effect!
