Both cameras are expected to be available in June.

The Super 35mm NEX FS700 can capture footage at up to 960Fps.
Sony said it is planning a firmware upgrade that will enable the camera to output 4K over 3G HD-SDI to a 4K recorder.
Sony Europe strategic marketing manager Bill Drummond said that with its super slow motion mode the NEX FS700 would be suited for pop promos, commercials and documentaries as well as sports.
According to Sony, the NEX FS700 delivers full HD quality images at 120 and 240Fps in an 8 or 16 second burst mode. 480Fps and 960Fps rates at reduced resolution are available for faster frame rate recording.
