Sony NEX Full Frame Mirrorless Camera with Interchangeable Lenses

Normally, when you look at a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera like the Samsung NX-210 or something from the micro four-thirds format, you can expect to get a cropped sensor that’s somewhere between a P&S and a full frame DSLR. At best, you can expect to get an APS-C sized sensor — equivalent to what you get on consumer entry-level DSLRs — in the Sony NEX series. But now, we’re apparently getting ready to go bigger. All the way up to full frame, in fact.

You might remember the Sony RX1 from a few months ago. It was able to bring the full frame sensor into a more compact size, but it had a fixed lens. It was also remarkably expensive. Well, it seems that Sony is ready to do the full frame thing with a mirrorless interchangeable lens NEX camera in about a year. This new camera would give you all the power and capability of a higher-end DSLR, like better low light performance and faster autofocus, not to mention better image quality.

Of course, seeing how much we can expect to pay for full frame DSLRs, we can only expect that a full frame mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses will cost that much more. In any case, we’re expecting the design to be a bulkier version of the NEX-7 (pictured), taking on E-mount lenses. It should be compatible with A-mount lenses too. Rumors are pointing toward a 24MP variant and a 30-32MP version. Expect the launch to happen late next year or some time in the early part of 2014.
