More details about the Sony NEX-7 replacement have been leaked on the web ahead of the mirrorless camera’s announcement event scheduled to take place before the end of June 2015.
A new A6000-series E-mount mirrorless camera will be introduced by Sony by the end of the first half of 2015. It will not be a successor to the A6000, but instead it will be a direct replacement to the flagship E-mount camera called NEX-7. Its name is unknown for now, but more details about it have just showed up online.
Among the newly-leaked information about the Sony NEX-7 replacement we can find a narrower announcement event timeframe along with some of the mirrorless camera’s specifications.
Sony NEX-7 replacement to be announced officially in mid-June
The upcoming successor to the NEX-7 will be unveiled sometime around mid-June. It was supposed to become official in May, but it was delayed due to some issues, including the name of the device. It appears that Sony does not know whether to make it an A6000-series model or to call it A7000.
This shooter will be released in very late June in Japan, while photographers located in the rest of the world will be able to buy it as of July 2015.
Its price details have remained undisclosed, but it is worth noting that it could be an expensive camera, so do not act surprised if it costs around $1,000 with a kit lens. There is a strong chance that the pricing information will be leaked ahead of the announcement event, therefore keep an eye on Camyx!
It will become the camera with the world’s quickest autofocus technology
The specifications list of the Sony NEX-7 replacement will include a brand new autofocus system that will be the fastest in the world. This means that it will be quicker than the impressive AF technology found in the A6000.
This upcoming mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor will be targeted at professional photographers. As a testimony to this fact, the device will be weathersealed. It is said that it will employ the same weather-sealing system as the Sony A77II A-mount camera.
As we are getting closer to the official product launch event, we will find out soon whether or not the Sony NEX-7 replacement will feature built-in image stabilization and Tri-Navi controls. Meanwhile, stay close to Camyx and check out the NEX-7 at Amazon, where it is available for under $600 with a kit lens.
