The Sony NEX-5T is the latest mirrorless camera from Sony that is part of their NEX-5 range, and is also one of the few remaining mirrorless cameras from Sony bearing the NEX moniker. That being said, it’s a decent mid-ranged camera for people looking to get into mirrorless photography, but it also seems that the camera could be coming to an end.
Despite the camera having been launched back in 2013, word on the street has it that Sony could soon be looking to discontinue the device. This is according to Sony Alpha Rumors who claims that they have confirmed with multiple sources that the Sony NEX-5T will be discontinued this summer, meaning that if you still wanted to get the camera, you’d probably want to move fast.
It is unclear why Sony will be discontinuing the device so soon after it was launched, but do take it with a grain of salt for now. Sony Alpha Rumor’s sources also did not mention if there would be a successor to the NEX-5T, or if Sony plans on slowly phasing the NEX series out of their lineup, instead choosing to replace it with Alpha cameras, like the recently announced Sony A6000.
In any case like we said, it’s only a rumor for now as Sony has yet to officially announce anything, but we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for more information, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
