If you were keen on actually seeing the F5 and F55 cameras operated here’s a nice video in which Richard Lewis, Cinematography & Product Specialist from Sony shows you around their new babies.
Recently the Yen prices for the new cameras have popped up (LINK) ahead of official announcement (apparently by mistake). A rough conversion of the prices gives us the following (seems to be before tax):
Sony F55: $34k
Sony F5: $20k
the R5 RAW recorder: $5.8k
oled EVF: $6.5k
normal EVF: $3.9k
7″ LCD: $5.3k
olivine Batteries: $579
RAW card reader: $763
6-lens kit: $30k
3-lens kit: $17k
And these are expected to ship in February 2013.
