Sony Alpha Rumors has received a boatload of information, though none of it complete, about Sony’s newest Alpha cameras and accessories. This comes hot on the heels of another Alpha leak, showing off the upcoming NEX-7. I won’t repeat all the details here, but it’s a nice little info tease to hold you off until the rumored August 24 launch date.
The NEX-7 we saw looks to be more or less confirmed, though I’m guessing they’ve switched that OFF-NO switch to an OFF-ON one, and it has molted its shiny silver shell. Supposedly this is a competitor with the X100, though without a fixed lens and optical rangefinder it’s obviously a different beast. No info on the EVF. That Zeiss lens, though, is a 24mm f/1.8, but you wouldn’t guess it from its size. Looks more like a wide-angle zoom than a fast prime.
The NEX-5 will be getting a sensor update, and there are also a few accessories and updates for the rest of the Alpha line. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the details on these devices.
