So word on the street has it that come 16th of October, there is a good chance of Sony launching their full-frame NEX cameras. We’re sure some of you guys are also curious as to what the devices could be known as. Well according to Sony Alpha Rumors, Sony has decided to stick with the Alpha moniker for all of its high-end devices, regardless whether they are E-mount or A-mount, and as it turns out, the first two full-frame NEX cameras will be known as the A7 and the A7r, with the A7 being the cheaper model, while the A7r is the high-end model.
Both cameras are expected to be identical, save for the 24MP in the cheap model, and the 36MP in the expensive one. The rest of the camera’s features include a NEX-7 grip, an EVF in the middle (similar to the Olympus OMD design), and will be around the same size as the Sony RX1. Once again Sony has yet to make anything official so do take it with a grain of salt for now, but the A7 and A7r are both models we’ll be keeping our eyes out for, so be sure to check back with us later in the month to see if there are additional updates to be had.
