Rumor recap and small new info: Is the soon to be announced new FF “High Speed” E-mount camera a Sony A7sIII?

As we reported here on SAR Sony will have a new product announcement on April 23. The most reliable info so far is that:

  1. There will be a new High End E-mount FF camera
  2. This camera is all about speed: fastest AF of all Sony E-mount cameras, around 20fps, unlimited RAW recording
  3. Dual SD card
  4. Bit larger than current A7II camera series
  5. It has a joystick control on the back
  6. New FE lenses coming (16-35mm f/2.8 GM and 100-400mm FE G)

But it’s unclear yet what camera this is. These are the possibilities:

  1. New special Sony A9 camera (or A8 or whatever): Which means first of a new line.
  2. New Sony A7III camera with high speed AF and FPS
  3. New Sony A7sIII camera with high speed AF and FPS and terrific High ISO performance

It may be that the long time rumored new High End FF E-mount camera (tentatively named “A9” in the prototype stage) will indeed be a new generation A7 cameras which will be placed above the current line (in terms of price, size and obviously performance). And the last few days I got some yet to be confirmed hints that the camera is going to be very similar to the current A7II series (just a bit larger) and that the camera might be a new Sony A7sIII. But this is far from confirmed yet so don’t hold me accountable yet on that….

Two new Sony camera registered in Asia: One is a new FF E-mount camera and one a new RX?

Nokishita reports that Sony registered two new cameras with the following codes:

  • WW361847
    • Wi-Fi・Bluetooth
  • WW620081
    • Wi-Fi・Bluetooth

And we know that one of those new cameras is for sure a new E-mount FF camera. Usually it takes 1-2 months after registration before the camera gets officially announced. As I reported before the new Sony FF E-mount camera is a high speed camera which means: Fastest AF of all E-mount cameras to date, around 20fps, low resolution sensor, dual SD card, unlimited RAW burst recording. It will probably a new “A7” kind of camera.

It’s yet unclear what the other camera might be but I guess it’s a fixed lens camera (probably a new RX?).

(SR3) Sony press event on April 23! New 8k camcorder coming?

Sony will have a press announcement on April 23 at 3pm (Las Vegas time). A part of the rumored new E-mount lenses (and maybe a new E-mount camera) we may get something else too: The following rumor has been shared by a trusted source. But so far I wasn’t able to fully confirm it. He said there will be a new camcorder:

similar to f5 and f55 with 8k also global shutter

I really have a hard time to think the market is ready (or even needs) an 8k Camcorder by now. Or maybe what Sony is going to show is a prototype only?

(SR5) Yes, the new Zeiss Batis is a 135mm f/2.8 lens!


EXIF data of the new lens. Note: This is EXIF data from a real “image source” and not faked :)

A source just leaded me over to a 100% bullet proof evidence the new Zeiss Batis is a 135mm f/2.8 lens. I still don’t know the exact announcement date of the lens. Some yet to be confirmed info I got from a new source that it might be announced on April 5th. But I am really not sure about that yet.

Note for the source: The “material source” blocked access by now. Cannot link to it anymore.
Note for readers: The proof is NOT the EXIF image I am showing you on top. So don’t bother telling me EXIF data can be faked. Because the proof I got is “related” to it and I cannot post it on SAR.

Links to all current Zeiss Batis lenses: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

(SR5) Definitely a Sony announcement coming in April!

Two Highly trusted and one new source confirmed Sony will have a major product announcement in April. But is going to be announced by Sony?

I am still working to get a reliable list of what we could get. So far I can share this:

90% chance: New camcorders will be announced at NAB (April 23)
80% chance: new 16-35mm f/2.8 GM

70% chance: New E-mount FF camera trimmed for speed (Low Megapixel number, fastest autofocus of all Sony cameras, around 20fps, dual SD card, joystick control, unlimited RAW recording).
70% chance: New tele E-mount lens (probably 100-400mm FE or/and a 400mm FE)

I am still struggling to understand if the new High Speed camera will be an A7 camera (maybe an A7III trimmed for speed) or if it will get a new name like “A9” or something like that….
