    If this comes out with the rumored Zeiss glass it will be a great camera.

    That may also sets the stage for future Olympus FF Oly/Panny Full Frame.


    Sony announced a Press conference for April 7th at 2:30pm Las Vegas local time (PST). They will certainly announce the new Camcorders. The NEX-7n has been delayed and so no new regular E or A mount cameras should be announced. There may be some new E-mount lens and the Hasselblad Lunar.

    Here are some rumors about what may be coming soon:
    - Full Frame Sony NXcam.
    - The Three wonderful Zeiss primes for the E-mount
    - The Hasselbald Lunar
    - The 55-210mm Lens update.


    *** just realized they meant Nx camcorders ***

    Lets hope those Zeiss related announcements aren't $899 each.

    I doubt they will be that cheap.

    You're daydreaming, the current Zeiss prime is $1100, I'd be suprised if the new ones are below the $1k mark.

    And the Zeiss lenses probably won't be stabilized.

    If they are less then $1k they will be so out of place on a Sony...Sony is expensive!

    As big as the lenses on the current APS-C NEX lineup are (or appear), I hate to imagine the size of the FF lenses. To me, the physics of lens size are what make 4/3 so appealing.

    Agreed - to me the only compact full frame cameras that make sense are fixed lens models like the RX1...or I suppose the Leica Ms.
