Tomorrow (May 1) Sony will announce the new A77M2 (first A-mount camera after the 14 months old A58), RX100M3 and likely the final A7s pricing (around $3499 AUSD). I am still not sure about the two “new” lenses mentioned by one trusted source. The other sources haven’t seen them and it may be the source just meant the slightly updated 18-55mm kit lens and the FE Powerzoom. The best thing we can hope is that he might meant two new FE lenses that Sony could unveil on their updated roadmap. Anyway, these are the specs about the two upcoming cameras:

A77M2 A-mount:
new 24 megapixel Sensor
79 af points, 15 cross points
very Fast Tracking performance
12fps up to 60 Frames/ 25 frames RAW & JPG, RAW 26 frames
Low light AF, f/2.8 vertical line sensor, new algorithm

RX100M3:
20MP sensor (same as RX100M2 model)
ISO 125-25600
24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens
Built in View finder (SVGA OLED Tru-Finder 1440k dots)
Tiltable screen (180 degrees up)
Record in XAVC S format (Same format of the Sony A7s but with no 4K output option).
Almost same size and weight as the current RX100/M2 models.
I have been told all other specs are the same of the current RX100II model.
Price is said to be around 800-850 Euro in Europe. Should be around $800-850 in USA (US price is my guess)

Follow the announcement live here on SonyAlphaRumors on May 1 at:
– 2am (02:00) San Francisco
– 5am (05:00) New York time
– 10 am (10:00) London time
– 11 am (11:00) Berlin time
– 8 pm (20:00) Tokyo time

UPDATE: Looks like different countries will see the cameras announced on different days. This is Sony’s Hong KOng invitation test for a May 7 announcement. This isn’t unusual. Also the A7s has been announced in US first and only days after in Japan.

Finally I have a clue about the exact announcement time. The A77M2 and RX100M3 will be announced on May 1 at 10 am London time. In other time zones this will be:
– 2am (02:00) San Francisco
– 5am (05:00) New York time
– 10 am (10:00) London time
– 11 am (11:00) Berlin time
– 8 pm (20:00) Tokyo time

The most important correction I have to make is quite surprising because one of my trusted sources corrected the RX100M3 info. It doesn’t have the Sony patented 28-100mm f/1.8-2.8 lens! The RX100M3 has a new 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens! Sony decided to take away some mm at the tele end in favour of a much more wide angle lens. I am a bit surprised I was wrong on this because two trusted sources told me it was a 28-100mm lenses. I actually suspect Sony itself shared wrong specs without knowing it. Possible seen that they often copy and past from previous generation cameras :)  One more thing: It’s confirmed the new RX has a builtin EVF!

Be sure to be online on may 1 at SAR to follow the event live!

Reminder A77MII specs:
new 24 MP Sensor
79 af points, 15 cross points
very Fast Tracking performance
12fps up to 60 Frames/ 25 frames RAW & JPG, RAW 26 frames
Low light AF, f/2.8 vertical line sensor, new algorithm

A77M2
Some of you had the fear the next A-mount camera would never come? So here is an image leaking the “ILCA-A77M2” name. It’s coming from a Sony site (thanks NEXblog) and the “A” in “ILCA” means it’s A-mount :)

These are the Sony A77MII A-mount camera specs I got from a trusted source. Notice he said “A77MII” while another source called it “A77II” (without the “M”):

new Sensor
79 af points, 15 cross points
very Fast Tracking performance
12fps up to 60 Frames/ 25 frames RAW & JPG, RAW 26 frames
Low light AF, f/2.8 vertical line sensor, new algorithm

From previous rumors I got the sensor should likely have 24MP just like the predecessor (but with new design). And we know the camera has been trimmed for speed (super fast AF, no EVF lag and so on) and has built-in WiFi.

In summary this is what Sony could launch on May 1 10am (London time):
Sony A77II: An “upgraded” version of the current A-mount A77. With new 24MP sensor and Wifi, faster Af and EVF.
Sony RX100M3: Features an amazing 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens and a pop-up viewfinder
Sony A7s: pricing.
Two lenses: Likely two new FE Zeiss?
