Sony “WW940439” code camera to be announced soon (probably A7III)

Share

As reported by Nokishita there is still one Sony camera that has to be announced very soon. Its code is “WW940439”. The best bet is that this might be the A7III with the following specs shared by trusted sources:

New 24 MP sensor
First source said it hs “Same Sony A9 autofocus system without the 20fps feature”. Second source said it’s “improved AF system”. Hope they mean both the same thing.
Touch Screen
Joystick control
4K30p recording

Unconfirmed additional specs:

6fps with mechanical shutter
ISO up to 51200 (expanded to ISO 204800)
693 phase detection AF (which is same as a9!!)
minimum focus sensitivity is EV-3

I also expect new FE lenses like the rumored 135mm and 400mm FE to be announced next.
