(SR3) A7RII (or A9) coming in two weeks from now?

I just got this….

“New high end A7R MK2 being spoken about at Sony and an announcement in the coming weeks. I know there is rumors about an ‘A9′ and they may be referring to this model, or perhaps there will be two models – or Sony may stick to A7R II as the new model.”

Let’s hope we will finally get the new High Megapixel FE camera!

P.S.: Thanks source! ;)

(SR3) Two new Zeiss FE 25mm f/2.0 and 85mm f/1.8 coming mid-end 2015?

On February Sony will finally launch the lenses announced back at Photokina (see roadmap on top). And today we also got some tidbits about the next bunch of lenses coming in mid-end 2015. The source said there will be two Zeiss branded FE autofocus lenses:

1) 25mm f/2.0:
Such a lens already exists for Canon and Nikon DSLR. It’s the Distagon 25mm f/2.0 (here on eBay). Anyway, if the rumor is true it’s a bit surprising to see two 28mm and 25mm f/2.0 FE lens in 2015.
2) 85mm f/1.8:
This should be the long time rumored tele prime lens.

The source stressed to say that what he saw were prototype lenses:

We used them on a Sony A7R. Appeared to be similar build quality and style to the “Touit-Loxia” series. They were both AF and quite snappy with focus and of course very sharp.

If the rumor is tell us:

Which lens would you consider to buy?

Debunking a rumor. That Sony camera code is not for a new FE camera.

large_A9

I have to write this post to debunk a rumor running on the web. Sony registered a new camera in Indonesia. The name is hidden behind the code “WW808162“. Unlike the rumors this isn’t a new FE camera code but the code used for the Kw1 smartphone selfie camera. Just search on the official the Kw1 manual for the code and you will see it’s used for the cam.

This is the selfie cam in case you forgot about it :)

(SR4) Sony sales info: Most sold Sony camera is the A6000 (A7 series doing much better than expected).

sonysales

A long time source spilled out some general info on the Sony camera sales:

1) A77II A-mount camera sales slightly exceeded the projections of the first three sales months.

2) A7-A7r-A7s sales are way higher than Sony’s best projection.

3) The most sold FE camera is the Sony A7s

4) The most sold E-mount camera (FF and APS-C) is the A6000.

I am not surprised to hear that at all. And I hope Sony will take note that we need more APS-C E-mount lenses too to support the many A6000/5100 and future A7000 camera owners.
