Exactly one year ago (+1 day) Sony announced the last A-mount camera!

Exaclty One Yeard and One day ago Sony announced the last A-mount camera, the Sony A58. I know some of you complained that I was bringing to many E-mount news but as you see, this happens only because Sony decided to focus on the E-mount and RX camera development.

But now the long wait has an end and my trusted sources confirmed new A-mount cameras will come very soon. I am not 100% sure yet but the first camera could be announced in late March or early April. What we also know for sure is that the new A-mount cameras will focus on speed. EVF refresh rate much improved, Hybrid AF even a tiny bit faster than the one used on the A6000, on sensor phase detection pixels and likely same A7 and A7r resolution sensor.

The big question is: Will they have SLT tech? I know Sony developed both, completely mirrorless and SLT A-mount cameras. Latest I heard is that it has SLT btu I am still not sure about it.

Stay tuned, some exciting time ahead of us! And finally some smiles for A-mount lovers :)

(SR2) Are these the next FE lenses? 16-35mm, 35mm f/1.4 and 90mm macro.

First of all, this is a rumor coming via Kakaku and not from my sources. So take it with a grain of salt. Japanese sources at Kakaku claim to have got reliable info from Sony that these will be the next Sony FE lenses:

16-35mm f/4.0 Zeiss
35mm f/1.4 Zeiss
90mm Sony G macro

All reliable info I got from my sources is that there is a new Sony announcement in about 4-6 weeks. And one anonymous sources told me two new FE lenses will be released by then (the wide angle zoom and the fast prime). I would definitely buy the 35mm f/1.4 Zeiss if they release it! And you?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Samyang will develop autofocus lenses too!

Last year we reported that Samyang will make autoficus lenses for the E-mount system. Well, within the next couple fo days Samyang will officially launch the new logo you see here on top. And they will also announce the development of their first autofocus lenses! Great news for all E and A-mount camera owners because Samyang is well-known for their high optical quality and relatively low priced lenses.

P.S.: Currently Samyang sells their lenses under different brands. Don’t know if they will get rid of that confusing strategy. Here are the brands linked to ebay lens search results:
Samyang
Walimex
Rokinon
Opteka
Falcon
Vivitar
Bower

UPDATED: Sony talks big about 4K (but no camera yet)

Image courtesy: Optyczne.

The Sony booth at the CP+ show in Yokohama is displaying Sony’s current Full Frame cameras (RX1, A99 and A7r) under a big 4K advertising. UPDATED: The Japanese text you see above the camera is just advertising the Bravia 4K TV  and not advertising any new 4K camera.

But according to my sources a first Full Frame 4K camera will be announced soon and challenge the just announced Panasonic GH4.

(SR5) Trusted sources: No A7000 APS-C E-mount coming in 2014. Main focus on FE from now on!

Image on top shows the TriNavi from the NEX-7

I saw a couple of sites claiming the A6000 doesn’t replace the NEX-7 and that there may be a new A7000 APS-C model in future with TriNavi. I can confirm via trusted sources that this isn’t true. There will be no A7000 APS-C(!) E-mount camera in 2014. I repeat it, no APS-C A7000 with TriNavi in 2104.

I have been also told the focus now is on FE camera and lens releases. Particularly new FE lenses are needed to make the system grow. Hope that Sony will announce the next two FE lenses in late March-early April.

Reminder: Up to $650 off on A7-A7r, lens and flash packages at Amazon US (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and SonyStore US (Click here).
