Re: Whats this?

Naw, that's just the regular 18-105mm that comes with the FS5. I always found these EA50s interesting for their price point. When you need a few high-sensitivity cameras but don't have a huge budget.

Re: Whats this?

No that's the same lens as the "m" it must include something else. Maybe the hard drive?

Re: Whats this?

Still say this is what it looks like to me. Thats why there is no price. The lens is more than the body. Same EA50, just offered with a new lens at no discount I am guessing:

Re: Whats this?

The photo on the product page indicates otherwise, that's the 18-105mm, it wouldn't make sense for sony to combine this camera with the 3,5k 18-110mm lens, especially because sony labels this camera as entry level. No-one would buy this.

Re: Whats this?

It's just an attempt from Sony to resurrect a otherwise dying model, just trow in a accessory or other lens, give it's name a new suffix and bam! new model, new price. :) If they would give the camera a new 4K capable sensor or one that is optimized for video it would be worth looking into but now, nah, not really.

Re: Whats this?

I personally would be on board if they either put the chip in it from the ARs II OR made a A-psc 28-104 at 2.8 and included it. OR both :)

Re: Whats this?

Since I seem to be the last guy in the universe still shooting with two EA50s I am curious about this. I have searched it several times to no avail. I think Noa is right about an accessory or some gimmick.

When I copy the new model number and paste it in B&H search box it changes to a lens hood!

Anyway....still loving my cameras and plan to keep going until my clients ask for 4K.

Re: Whats this?

Steve im with ya I am loving my cameras although I am thinking about small. It looks like the AR6500 and FDR-AX100 have the same chip I was thinking about using my current lenses and using the AR-6500 for detailed stuff and the FDR for my bread and butter stuff. I guess in threory I could get the same pix with less weight and more flexibility also I could go 4K if I wanted.

That photo looks like the EA50M. Looks like the 18-105 lens on the EA50 to me.

Hey Steven, I still have my EA50U so you are not the ONLY one left, lol :)
