Sony FX6?

Hi there!

Are there any news at all about a possible launch date for the FX6? My first gen FS5 i slowly breaking down and I've been looking forward to update my camera.

A bit desperate for some news though...

Re: Sony FX6?

I realize this post is a month old, but the a7siii was just released, if you'd consider that. Otherwise, my guess for the FX6 would then be either later in the year (Oct/Nov), or Jan/Feb to NAB time around April. I followed the a7siii fairly intensely as I too was in need, and those tended to be the rumored release times (also A9 & A7R's would pop up as rumors)

Yes, I saw that. It's really not ideal to work with still size cameras for me but... it seems like I may have to if I want to stick to Sony...
It's been rumoured since the FX9 so really don't understand the hold up... A bit frustrating tbh. Some info from the company would go a long way.

I agree. If you can wait, I'd expect it probably early next year (January-April), maybe at NAB. Possibly sooner (Nov/Dec)

Re: Sony FX6?

So, it's here. Great news.

My current set-up is a FS5 with canon lenses. However, to use the new autofocus system it seems better to use native lenses. I have no experience with Sony lenses but I'm struggling to find an equivalent of what's my work horse right now. The Canon F4 16-35L.
On the wish list is a wide, weather sealed, zoom with steady shot. Is there any Sony or other e-mount that fits the bill?

THanks.

Nice that you held out for it, and your time has come.

Sigma makes really good lenses, might wanna look into them if cost is a thing. Otherwise Sonys G Lens is pretty expensive, 24-70 f2.8 for $2,000. They might have other models for less, I had like a 24-200 but it wasn't really that good, wouldn't put it on the FX-6.

Re: Sony FX6?

The FX6 is now creating waves around the forums, ‘it has an amazing feature set for the price.’

And it should start a new wave of competition, hopefully with better prices. Dealers should then package the FX6 together with some nice lenses. There’s a few videos ...


Cheers.
