(SR3) Sony planing a major announcement the second half of March?

I got two messages from two new sources. I am posting this in the hope trusted sources can confirm it:

Both new sources said Sony is planning a major announcement for the second half of March. They both added that there will be a new Sony camera (but they don’t know yet what it is).

It could be that Sony will show their new camera on March 18 at the Photography Show in Birmingham. But knowing Sony it could also be that they will announce it after the show by very end March. Anyway hope to hear back from my trusted sources soon to confirm this. So for now this is ranked SR3 only (50% chance it’s true).

What could we eventually expect to get from Sony? High on the list is the new 16-35mm F/2.8 GM. Still not sure if it’s the right time for the new High End E-mount camera release with dual card slot and bugger than A7 body.

In the meantime stay tuned on SAR! And if you think the A9 is something for you join the special Sony A9 group on Facebook (Click here) for more detailed coverage!

Fuji manager sort of confirms Sony is working on a new 100+ Megapixel 44x33mm sensor

Cinema5D interviewed a Fuji manager whom confirmed that the next generation 44x33mm Sony sensor will likely have 100+ Megapixel and 4K video recording support. So while the next generation Full Frame sensor could have around 70 Megapixel the 44x33mm medium format sensor will have 30% higher resolution compared to FF.

(SR4) Sigma will launch two new ART prime lenses this year: 14mm f/1.8 and 135mm f/1.8

Image on top shows the current 50mm f/1.4 A-mount ART lens

We have been told by a reliable sources that Sigma will launch two new ART lenses this year:

-14mm f/1.8
-135mm f/1.8

It’s yet unclear if there will be an A-mount version of those. While the current 35mm ART and 50mm ART are available for A-mount the 85mm ART is not. My guess is that as usual Sigma will first announce the Nikon/Canon/Sigma mount versions and maybe later the Sony A-mount and Pentax K-mount versions. That said these new Sigma lenses will get full electronic compatibility on E-mount cameras when you use the Sigma MC-11 Mount Converter.

if the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 is as least as good as the 135mm Zeiss but for under $1,000 well than I am sure the A-mount folks will be very happy about that new glass!

(SR5) Both 100mm STF and 85mm f/1.8 rumors were correct: Same sources confirm the new High End E-mount camera is coming!

Three trusted sources shared the correct info about the lenses and the announcement time:

1) 100mm rumor (lens announcement period got delayed. Probably because of the production issues we reported here).
2) 85mm rumor was spot on to
3) And so the announcement time rumor.

But what matters is that all these sources also confirmed this:

  1. 16-35mm GM is real deal
  2. New Sony High End E-mount camera placed above the A7rII is coming this year too! The name of the camera is unconfirmed but I call it tentatively “A9”.

The High End camera is probably the “new camera with very fast burst rate and AF speed, not the A7 series, not on CP+” that Sony Artisan Zhang Qianli was talking about on Weibo. And it seems likely it will be announced after the CP+ show is Zhang is correct in his statement.

I am now working with all of three of them to see what I can post about the new A9 soon…Stay tuned on SAR and join the special Sony A9 group on Facebook (Click here) for more detailed coverage!
