Long time SAR reader AnimalsBarry claims to have gotten some reliable info from one of his “sources”. I had the chance to talk with him and I told him I would post the rumors with SR2 only because I don’t know if I can trust his source. That’s why you have to take it with a grain of salt. Here is what he writes:
“A sony manager just actually called me to share this info so it is sr5
A79..will be 32mp
Ff cameras will be 24 and 36mp a mount
Hybrid camera will have z shift
Stacked sensor will probably be early to mid 2015 not late 2015
Ospdaf in future cameras will work with most 3rd party lenses including tamron and sigma..so high speed af will be available
This comes from a high level sony us manager and you can safely call this sr5
Big announcement in next couple of weeks..a lot of this info will be released then
SAR note: All I can say with an SR5 reliability is, yes there is an announcement scheduled in a couple of weeks (4K camera), and yes there will be an A77 successor (but I am not sure if it will come with the next announcement).
