Sony’s NEX-7 mirrorless camera system was expected to see a launch by the end of the year, but unfortunately due to the flood in Thailand which affected Sony’s factories, the launch of the device was delayed. Sony then managed to get it sorted out but due to the delay in manufacturing, not all orders managed to get fulfilled and only those who had placed their pre-orders much earlier would be receiving their cameras.
Well the good news is that it looks like Sony may have gotten everything back on track and the Sony NEX-7 is up for pre-order (again) should you still be interested in getting your hands on the device. Unfortunately it appears that even if you pre-order it now, its estimated shipping date is set for the 3rd of April 2012, which does seem pretty far off. However if you don’t mind the wait, you will be able to pre-order the Sony NEX-7 from Sony’s website with the body-only option setting you back $1,199.99, while the model with the 18-55mm lens will go for $1,349.99.
