The internet is always full of rumors. Some of them are made up, conceived from the wishful thinking of fanboys and other daydreamers, while others have a solid basis. One of the latter is the rumor that a new iteration of Sony’s highly popular NEX-5 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera may soon be hitting markets. How do we know that? Well, the designation ‘NEX-5T’ has recently been registered with the Taiwan Radio Research Agency, and that’s usually a safe sign. Sadly, we have no conclusive details on the 5T’s specifics yet, but considering how the NEX-5-series has matured over time–from the original NEX-5 over the 5n to the current 5R–, it’s probably safe to assume that it’s another iteration of the well-proven recipe, with some slight extra spice here and there.
The other rumor that’s been floating around–for a long while, actually–is that Sony is currently working on a mirrorless NEX camera sporting a full-frame 35mm sensor. The company has already proven that it is possible to fit a sensor of that size into an NEX mount camera when they introduced the VG900 camcorder. Since then, enthusiasts all over the world have demanded a full-frame NEX stills camera, and now it seems their wish might be granted. As Mirrorless Rumors points out, it is likely that the full-frame NEX will be introduced in September of this year. Let’s keep our thumbs pressed!
