BUSTED->Five new Sony NEX lenses to be announced soon?

BUSTED! Klaus Schroff from Photozone revealed that five new Sony NEX lenses will be tested soon. But he forgot to mention that those are not SOny lenses but just Third-party lenses tested on NEX cameras!

Inside a dpreview forum post he said that: “There’ll be 5 more NEX tests in the near future so we’ll have a better guidance about the quality of these Sony lenses … emoticon - wink

SO will Sony not announce any new NEX lens at Photokina?

Rumors: Something “exceptional” is coming on August 26 (Japan time)!

One of our very good sources told us that a new “exceptional” mirrorless product will be announced on August 26 (Japan time). The product is “unexpected” and no rumor website since now suspected that this was coming! So we are the first to talk about that ;)

That new product will certainly be one of the highlights at Photokina! Follow mirrorlessrumors and as soon as we receive some news about that camera we will post it!

New exotic E-mount lens for Sony NEX owners -> SLR Magic 35mm f/1.7

Andrew from the SLRmagic company sent us an email with the presentation of the new lens:

There are not much lenses in the NEX E-mount so far. We have a 35mm f1.7 lens that sell pretty well in m4/3 mount. We occasionally receive emails requesting for e-mount version of the lens. It is now available for pre-order and ships by Sept 10th. We will have 100pcs initially and offer free shipping as well. Cost just under $100. Hope there will be others interested in this lens. Our lens is optimized for NEX so there is no vignette in the photos and does not need cropping. [shoplink ‘SLR Magic 35mm f/1.7 E-mount’]Click here to check the lens auction on eBay[/shoplink]”
