Sony NEX-6, RX1 and A99 images surface UPDATED

Images have surfaced on the net of an alleged full frame (35mm) compact, the RX1 featuring a Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 2/35 with manual aperture ring and a $3000 ticket. Although the camera is sure to appeal (to wealthy enthusiasts), it lacks an EVF* and doesn't appear to have interchangeable lenses. Be that as it may this is an interesting development and hopefully an indication of things to come.

The same site also has images of the NEX-6 and full-frame video-orientated A99. I'm not going to speculate on the individual camera's specification, the anticipated launch date is the 12th September so you will know soon enough.

*It could be an option given the unusual design of the hotshoe. (Update a source revealed it has both an EVF and OVF as options).

No SteadyShot Inside (there's room in the mount for a full-frame sensor, but Sony don't want do add it just yet.)

Sony's full-frame camera comes of age, the A99. With a 24-megapixel sensor, Sony don't want to compete head-on with their best customer (Nikon) but must be fairly confident arch-rival Canon isn't about to unleash a high-resolution EOS 1Ds X... or are they?

Dual SD, with one Memory Stick option but no XQD surprisingly.

No surprises here, it has the expected tilt and swivel LCD.

Sony finally ditches the proprietary Minolta hotshoe.
