The Sony camera lens with integrated sensor is rumored to be released in two versions, while the NEX full frame shooter has been completed and it may be unveiled soon.
Sony rumors might come to an end soon, as the Japan-based company is preparing to launch several new devices, including a camera-lens without a body, sources say.
Sources familiar with the matter are reporting once again that the Sony camera-lens is real and that it consists of a lens with a built-in image sensor, that will use a smartphone or a tablet as a Live View.
Sony camera lens with integrated sensor to feature same RX100 II sensor and Zeiss optics
According to the rumor mill, the revolutionary device will feature the same image sensor found in the new RX100 II, as well as its Zeiss lens.
The recently-launched shooter features a 20.2-megapixel sensor and a 28-100mm f/1.8-4.9 zoom optic among others.
Photographers will be capable of fitting the innovative device on smartphones
Additionally, the camera-lens module will sport WiFi and NFC connectivity. Users will be able to connect to a mobile device using either of these technologies and they will be able to frame the shot among other actions.
The advantages continue with the fact that the photographer will have the possibility of attaching the Sony camera-lens to a smartphone using magnets.
The best part about it is that the full information will be revealed soon, meaning that there is not too much time to wait until we get to see it in action.
Second camera-lens unit to feature 18-megapixel sensor and 10x optical zoom lens
Trusted sources, who have been right in the past, have revealed that two versions of the innovative module will be released. If the first is pretty much clear, the second one could be powered by a 1/2.3-inch-type 18-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 10x zoom lens.
Unfortunately, other technical details remain unknown, though the announcement date is not very far away, as stated above.
Sony NEX full frame camera and i1 Honami smartphone coming soon, too

A i1 Honami smartphone with the RX100 20.2-megapixel sensor is also getting closer to its release date, so we might put an end to all these uncertainties soon.
