We’ve been hearing a fair bit about the upcoming Sony NEX-7n, the rumored successor to Sony’s NEX-7 mirrorless camera. Early rumors have pointed at a May release, but now according to a report from Sony Alpha Rumors, they believe that according to their sources, the NEX-7n is expected to ship sometime in Autumn, although the camera is not expected to be called the NEX-7n and will instead get a new name which is currently unknown. Their sources go on to “confirm” that the NEX-7’s successor is expected to be the only interchangeable camera to be released by Sony, which for those who aren’t familiar, is apparently part of Sony’s new CEO’s strategy which is to introduce game-changing products rather than products with incremental upgrades.
Another one of Sony Alpha Rumor’s sources has also suggested to them that the NEX-7’s successor could be the first camera not to feature the Anti-Aliasing feature, and could also feature the new JPEG engine used in Sony’s Xperia i1 Honami smartphone. Phew! That’s a lot of rumors to be taken in at once, so take it with a grain of salt, but with the camera expected for a summer announcement, we guess we will just have to play the waiting game and see if any of these rumors pan out, but in the meantime what do you guys think about it so far?
