Stealth NEX-7 replacement?
Aug 10, 2014

So, the folk over at SAR are telling us that maybe — just maybe — Sony might drop a FF NEX-7 replacement in the chute at PhotoKina.

What I want is an A7000, not a NEX-7Alpha (or whatever). And there's the first problem: what is Sony going to call this beast? A6? Well they'll need to dumb it down and cheapen it down from the A7 if they do. And who wants a dumbed down camera? Except for those folks who bought an A6000?

If there were such a mythical beast as a NEX-7Alpha (my term) it would need to be better than the A6000. That means a better EVF (not hard to do, Sony — see the NEX-7), better AF (well A6000 type AF on a FF sensor), Tri-Navi controls, a horizon sensor, all the inputs that video people want (but Sony never seems to have the real estate to provide). And the sensor better be a corker!

Why not just finally announce the A7000 already? All the added features above but without a FF sensor. And without a hump. Price it at about $1000 as a step up from the A6000 and they'll sell like hotcakes.

Sony Alpha NEX-7
