We have been pretty sure, based on current rumors, that Sony will release the first of its new curved sensors in an RX Full Frame camera with a 35mm F/1.8 prime lens. But now some new rumors have surfaced that say Sony may not just be coming out with one curved sensor RX Full Frame, but a second one as well.


Unlike the curved sensor RX camera, this second RX would feature a standard CMOS sensor and a high quality zoom lens. More specifically, the sensor would be the same one as is in the Sony A7r, and that the lens would be a 35-70mm F/2.8 lens.

The rumor comes from an anonymous source, so take it with a heavy dose of salt, but it does make some sense. Sony has admitted that the creating zoom lenses for their curved sensor at this point in time is incredibly difficult, so maybe this is their way of appeasing those who want a zoom without breaking the bank trying to develop a special zoom lens for that new curved sensor.


What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it makes sense that Sony would do a zoom with a standard CMOS sensor, or do you think this is just some wacky dream rumor? Leave a comment below!
