The only other FF mirrorless camera is over $7k.

$4k is a good price.

The NEX VG900 (full frame mirrorless) is about $3000. I would think $4000 is pretty steep.


The Nex VG900 is a dedicated video camera which also has FF sensor and can shoots stills alongside video. In the world of professional video a $3000 camera is around entry to mid level pro camcorder, ask any full time video pro. Sony is using the NEX model name to add to its large sensor video cameras (that are dslr and camcorder hybrids, but with videographer professionals mainly in mind).

The Sony NEX EA50UH is a pro camcorder (with 16MP APSC sensor) at US $3899 with 18-200mm lens movie servozoom included. It will take all the E-Mount lenses and A-mount Lenses with an adaptor with auto focusing. Incredible feature controls, but designed for event videographer in mind. Will also take stills photos at 16MP.

The Sony FF A99 is around US $2800 but not a Nex.

So what is this $4000 FF NEX camera, made for still photography, or for designed for video (like above) as main function? Will this be Nex-9 with great lens combo for close to $4000. Not doubting it, as Sony likes to have some upscale still cameras like RX1 at $2800 new, or the possible rumoured Nex-9 (FF compact size) rumoured at $3000 for body only if that is the one you are looking at.
