We got word form an anonymous source that Sony will announce the new Sony A7000 at CES in early January. And it will cost $699 body only which is only $50 more than the current A6000 price. But I guess A6000 price will drop $50-100 til January...
Today eBay launched a special deal where you get the brand new Sony A7 with 28-70mm FE for $1549 (Click here to see the details). The sole lens costs $500 which means you pay $1,049 only for the body! I think the day will come soon when you will get a new Full Frame camera for under $1,000!
The non officially launched Silver 12-40mm PRO edition lens has yet appeared on a Dutch Store listed at Dealsrunner. I guess the new lens will be announced at the Photo Plus show in new York City which starts very soon.
P.S.: The image may be photoshopped by the dealer to fill the gap. But I guess the real lens is coming for real soon :)
The Tri Navi and rangefinder styled NEX-7 could finally get a successor! According to SonyAlphaRumors.com the new A7000 could be announced early 2015. It will have:
- New 24MP sensor
- 1/8000 shutter
- 4K video
- weather sealed body
And it will come along a new weather sealed 16-70mm f/4.0 Zeiss lens.
Let's hope that rumor turns out to be true!
ZY Optics announced that thee new Mitakon 42.5mm f/1.2 & 24mm f/1.7 Micro Four Thirds lenses will ship from next week. They also said that:
Due to the production issue, ZY optics decides to postpone the release the Sony E mount & Fuji X mount for ZY Optics 42.5mm f/1.2.
There could be one more Olympus announcement soon. And it should be for the new updated version of the Stylus 1 camera. There are no specs about the new camera but the pictures you see on top do show the new cam.

That is likely the most exciting new compact camera launched at Photokina. And it's...a smartphone! The Panasonic CM1 has a 1 inch(!) sensor inside and a gorgeous little 28mm f/2.8 Leica lens on it. It's going ot be sold in France and Germany only but I think this could become a real hotseller everywhere! So hurry Panasonic, launch worldwide preorders as soon as it gets!
After many months of work and lot of issues to solve our first beta of the new MirrorlessRumor theme is online.
The first thing you have to know is that this isn't just a redesign. We completely rethinked the way a rumor site should work!
What I learned from these years on MirrorlessRumors is that:
1) There are many mirrorless camera owners that have the knowledge and passion to share interesting news. They can finally do that directly without having to contact the administrators!
2) For me (the admin) it is impossible to be online 24h per day. And with your help I can avoid to miss important news or rumors. This will keep the site always up to date.
From now on this becomes a community where everyone can post directly news and rumors! To do so you are kindly invited to become a member of this site. Check out what you can do by clicking on the Member Panel you see on top right of the site (it shows only after your registration and login).
How it works and what you can do:
1) You can submit articles that will be reviewed by our admins (for now this is just...me). If approved they will get online.
2) You can comment articles
3) You will get votes for approved posts (100 points) and 1 point for every like on your posts or comments (or -1 point if someone dislikes)
4) If you want and I can trust you...than you can ask to become an admin. As admin you can write posts without my moderation and review other members articles.
What do you gain by joining the community?
1) You can promote your work, your sites and let the community know who you are! You are free to write post and link back to your Blog and Portfolios. Use MR to get known!
2) Less trolls. Now only approved members can comment and heavy trolls will be first warned and eventually kicked out if they don't follow the very basic rules of respect.
...and many more "reasons" to join will be online soon!
This is just a very early beta. We need to launch the site as it is to check out if everything works fine before we do keep adding features. So please, join the site, try the features and I hope you will like what we have done so far!
Thanks a lot!
