Nex 7 Leaked

if the image and info over at sonyalpharumours is right this looks to be an interesting camera for the rumoured 1200 bucks

sonyalpharumors | Blog | (SR4) HOT!!! Is this the first image of the NEX-7?

1) 3 Million dot OLED EVF
2) Hot shoe
3) 24mm f/1.8 ZEISS
4) Flash and the Image preview buttons
5) Pop-Up flash
6) Manual Aperture and Shutter Speed controls?
7) ???

I doubt it. That thing looks retro. It's got to be someone's photoshop job...

Does anyone know if the NEX C3 will have the same 16.2 MPixel sensor that's in the K-5? If so, that might be a nice 'second camera' with the 16mm lens.

It maybe a photoshop job. However, just because its retro doesn't mean much. The OLED evf is the part that makes be a bit suspicious. However, given Fuji and the X100 it wouldn't be a shocker if it is real.

Agreed, Sony doesn't do retro - they do future (and aesthetically speaking, not typically well!).

OTOH I wouldn't be surprised if there is a retro trend due to the enormous success of the X-100.

It doesn't look retro, what am i not seeing as retro? They marked it SR 4 60-80% chance of production.
That design is much more balanced and doesn't look like the front will tip you over

24mm f/1.8 looks pretty large, wasn't the concept of the NEX to appeal to people who don't want to heave around the bulk* of a normal APS-C DSLR?


* I don't really consider either my Nikon D300 or Pentax K10,K-7 or K5 to be bulky at all.

With an APS-C sensor they have no choice but to use APS-C lenses.

With a smaller sensor you get a smaller camera /lens combo.


The Nikon P500 with the same size sensor as the Pentax Q has a 36x zoom 22.5-800mm (35mm eqiv) lens !

Saw that too!

Wasn't going to post it for fear of sounding like a fanboy.
Personally, I'm anxious to see what Sony has done with their latest developments.
But most of all, I'm really looking forward to seeing the new sensor in a Pentax body

Thanks for sharing btw

It has a simplified ISO adjustment too.

• press menu
• use the circle to select target 26 of 36
• double tap OK
• use the circle to select target 12 of 36
• hold OK for 2 seconds
• repeat from step 1 until you've toggled the ISO you want

Kidding aside, button 7 better control ISO.
