UPDATE: Sony manager Otake says: With the next event we will get a new camera and lens!

Sony manager Otaka spilled out some info about the future Sony product launch cycle. He said:


which translated means:

“From now on, if we release a new body, we’ll release a new lens. If we release a new lens, we’ll release a new body.”

The latest two Sony announcements where about new lenses “only” (Zeiss Planar FE in July and the 50mm FE and 70-300mm FE in May). So it’s great to hear we are now getting new cameras too!

Thanks to all SAR readers who made the correct translation :)

This is the worldwide effect of the Sony sensor production stop in Kumamoto…


What happens if you stop the sensor production in one single Sony factory?  CIPA published the new worldwide camera shipment figures and they show that never in the modern digital camera market history shipment were as low as now!

Sony restored the full sensor production capability in August only (3,5 months after the production stop). And the effects of that will last til early 2017.
