Sonyalpharumors.com have been spilling some very interesting rumor details the last couple days. Of all the rumors that have been coming out, the Sony NEX7 rumors are by far the most interesting. What it sounds like is Sony is going to make a pseudo rangefinder similar to the Fuji X100 but with a way jazzed up 1080 24P AVCHD 2.0 (28Mbit/s) video mode. This is great news for all of us out there with shit hot rangefinder lenses looking for a compact body with a large(APS-C) sized sensor. Sonyalpharumors.com reports here that hands on testing reveals that Sony will be trying to market this is a modern day rangefinder with a special ad/rangefinder documentary web series to follow. Very interesting indeed, can’t wait to see what the low light capabilities of this camera are!
