Here I am again working on new rumors! Photokina is over and it didn’t bring us any new A700 or A900 successor. But the last 4-5 weeks I received many rumors about those cameras and the new lenses. I thank all anonymous sources for sending me the info. I didn’t post most of those rumors because I wanted to double-triple check everything with other sources. In those days I learned that the rumors I received about the A77, A950 and the new Zeiss and Sony G lenses have proven to be 90% correct. So I will start to post some rumor soon.
What I can tell you now is that 2011 will be a very exciting year for professionists. New High-end APS-C and a new fullframe camera will be announced. And both will be from ground up redesigned cameras with some very advanced technologies. There will be new Zeiss primes/zooms and also High-end NEX cameras and lenses. I have only two bad news:
1) It looks like Sony stopped the development of the firmware upgrade for current Sony A850/A900 cameras. The reason is that they had issues with the software of those cameras.
2) The A77 and A950 (tentative name) will not be announced during the first 4-5 months of 2011. So we have still to wait a little bit 🙁
Yes I do agree with you, Sony is late with the A77 and A950. We all expected those camera to be announced in 2010. But my sources told me that this happened because Sony wanted to bring some very advanced innovation with those cameras. So let’s wait and see…
To all my sources: It would be nice if we cans tay in touch so please create a fake email account to contact me. I would love to stay in touch with you. Thanks 🙂
