Amazon has the Sony NEX-VG900 bundled with the 28-75mm f/2.8 lens for $3696. The VG900 normally runs $3298 on its own, and the Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 lens is a $900 lens. Accordingly, this is a savings of about $500 on the bundle. There are only 2 in stock at the moment here at Amazon.
The upcoming full frame NEX-9 is rumored to accept full frame Sony Alpha lenses; however, it is supposed to do so without the use of the LA-EA3 NEX-to-Alpha converter like the Sony VG900 camcorder uses.
The next big thing for Sony E-Mount is full frame – particularly so, given that the Sony VG900 and Sony RX1 have been making big waves as full frame cameras. Of course, the VG900 features is a NEX camera with an E-Mount; however, only Alpha-mount full frame lenses can take advantage of that sensor courtesy of an adapter. And then, there’s the RX1, which has a lens affixed to the camera in a rather compact package for a full frame shooter.
As SonyAlphaRumors points out though, full frame NEX options are coming and Zeiss is planning to deliver three new full frame prime lenses for Sony NEX E-Mount cameras.
While these lenses are purportedly on the road map, we won’t see them for over a year when they arrive in June 2014.
Here’s a nice video preview put together by CameraStoreTv of the new Sony A99 and VG900. [click to continue…]
