Debunking the next false rumor: Sony A95 in China.

Image of the fake A95 entry

I see there is some buzz on the web because the Chinese Site PConline added a Sony A95 camera into their database.

Just to be clear. That site always creates such fake entries to be promoted. It’s years now they are doing so. Sometimes they have been right on the camera names but just because they read rumors or because it’s easy to guess the name of a possible camera successor.

(SR4) A77 successor has on sensor PDAF

Ok guys, I finally start to have a tiny bit more reliable info about the next A-mount cameras coming in Spring. I just have been told by one source (and confirmed via another one) the next Sony A77 successor is definitely coming and it will have on sensor PDAF. The big question they could not answer yet is if this means that the A79 (or whatever the name will be) comes with or without semitransparent mirror.

As you know Sony already patented such a camera (United States Patent Application 20130113982). I have been also told that Sony managers try to avoid answering any question about the future of the SLT tech. Let’s see if the A79 will be the first camera without that mirror in between…

P.S.: Save $300 on the VG-C77AM Vertical Grip with Sony A77 Digital SLR Purchase at Amazon US (Click here).

(SR1 UPDATED:) Rumor (or joke?) about a new E-mount FS960 with 4K.

Someone at DVXuser said there is a new Sony FS series in the hands of beta testers now. Its supposed to be called FS960. It will do 4K at 60p, Full HD at 120p continous, and 240fps without buffer. Price will be 12K$. UPDATE: I am not sure if this one is a rumor floating on the forum or just a joke. So take it easy :)

(SR3) Two new FE lenses coming in March? Zeiss fast prime and Zeiss f/4.0 zoom likely!


According to a new source Sony will launch two new FE (Full Frame E-mount) lenses in March. As you can see on the roadmap on top a total of five new lenses will be announced in 2014. Of three of them we know a tiny bit more:
– One Zeiss fast prime lens.
– One Zeiss f/4.0 wide angle zoom.
– One G macro lens.

I hope the fast Zeiss and the f/4.0 zoom are the lenses coming in March just like the Roadmap suggests…
