New Sony Rumors, New E-Mount Lenses, Full Frame Nex??
Courtesy of our friend Andrea over at the Mega Rumor site SonyAlphaRumors
, we have several New pretty solid Sony Rumors!!
New High Qulaity Zeiss E-Mount Zoom Lens??
Very well known sources confirmed that Sony will launch a premium quality standard zoom lens in 2013. I donít have the exact specs and release date yet but I have been told itís a ZEISS! I have been told it will be similar to the current Zeiss 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 A-mount lens
This sounds awesome and I would totally want one. I love the A-Mount version of this lens and gave a 5 star review of the 18-80mm Zeiss Lens Over Here >>
Full Frame Nex??
A and E-Mount Lens Future?
And now the NEX FF:
There is no news yet. I have been told Sony still has not decided the exact time frame for the official release. It all depends from the ongoing testing work. They are now testing two prototypes, one with 24Megapixel and one with 30-32 Megapixel sensor. Both sensors have new features and phase detection pixels on sensor. The AF performance is one of the key technologies Sony want to improve. The tested sensors are part of a new generation of Sony sensors. I have no info yet if the 30-32 Megapixel sensor will be used by Sony exclusively or shared with Nikon. Also the viewfinder tech is being elaborated and will be different from what we have seen until now. Anyway, not much news yet but I guess that soon Sony will decide how the final NEX FF should be. And by than I hope I can share you some bits about it!
First, this is a rumor site, so never I repeat NEVER(!) accept my info as 100% sure facts.
I never wrote A-mount is dead. The only thing I wrote is that Sony is speeding up the NEX FF project and that there will be no SLT FF in 2013. Again, this is a rumor. It may be that Sony will release an SLT FF in 2014. But I have no info about the 2014 strategy.
Focus on my A-mount rumors: As I told you there will be at least four new A-mount lenses within the next 6 months, there will be 2 or even three new A-mount ASP-C SLT cameras. That sounds damn good to me!
The NEX FF I heard about has 100% support for all A-mount lenses. Which means that AF speed will be as fast as it gets, like on current A-mount cameras. I would have no doubt buying A-mount lenses. Especially an upcoming lens like the superb 50mm f/1.4 Zeiss!
So again, we are a rumor site and itís obvious that people discusses what could happen in one year from now. But keep your feet on ground. Donít go too far with extreme speculations
P.S.: I would buy the A99 right now if I would need a FF hybrid stills and video camera.
Pretty exciting stuff if you ask me
