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!

    I think it's more related with keeping the weight and size down than with the DoF control.

    It's actually more difficult to find glass that you CAN'T use with Sony E-Mount. It basically adapts to anything. I have a Canon F1.4 50mm Prime that I use a lot with mine. Is that fast enough for ya'? :)

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.

I got this rumor from a very good Samsung source:

Not sure they'll succeed in doing this, but at nx team they are doing their best to get the nx400 ready for the cp+ show in February.
Confirmed the same sensor and AF system as nx1. No weather sealing, smaller buffer (but much bigger than older models).

Would certainly be nice if it becomes true!

    Thanks for the replies anyone up to speed with the nx1 h265 format? Will it enable me to record and play back at current 1080 h264 format. The XT 1 is equipped with h264 like most other cameras.

Jordan and Chris from TheCameraStoreTV just posted that Canon G7X vs. Sony RX100 MK III Shootout. The G7X is a great camera but also that one has some symptoms typical of the Canonitis disease. Just watch the video to learn what's wrong with the cam :)

    A classic: Canonitis (Noun/Latin Origin)
    - To never go the full step you really need to innovate and take over the market.

    Sad to see the performance of the G7X.

    I cannot speak for the af as I don't own the camera. So I don't know if the af is so bad that I couldn't shoot my kids running around. My rx100 ii is just OK for shooting moving targets, so my expectations are low to begin with that any pocketab...

    well how can you shoot your kids running around when the autofocus is suck? for me the full sensor read out and the higher bit rate of video rx100 iii make it win landslide over the canon.
