(SR4-5) Small update on the FE 24-240mm announcement and other upcoming products.

Had a chat with Digicameinfo and with two of my sources. Here are the key info:

1) Digicameinfo is usally spot on wiht rumors and he told me directly the FE 24-240mm will ship on March 12 in Japan but the real announcement with full pricing info, preorders and specs is expected to be within the next few days (maybe this week already). I would usually rate the rumor SR5 because he is usally right. Hope he doesn’t make any mistake exactly that time :)

2) SR5: There is a very high chance of another Sony product announcement coming in late March (or first week of April).  SR4: And that should be for camera(s)

3) SR4: The other three FE lenses (90mm macro, 35mm Zeiss and 28mm G) price should be announced in April.

The real question is what’s coming from Sony ont he camera front. I got reliable rumor about the High Res camera, RX2 (curved sensor) and A7000. But the very same sources told me Sony Japan is keeping the release date info very secret.

sony-fe-24-240mm-zoom-lens

UPDATED: At last! Sony Japan will start shipping the new 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS FE lens on March 12. This means Sony will announce the price of the lens and accept preorders in a very few days already! The other three new FE lenses should be released in April.

And there are also rumors about another announcement in late March (should be for cameras!).

(UPDATED to SR5) Sony to launch new products in late March-early April.

UPDATE: Multiple sources confirmed the Sony product announcement event. I upgraded the rumor to my max SR5 score :)

The sources “heard” that Sony will announce new “major” products in late March-very early April. They didn’t share the actual public announcement date yet. But this confirms the rumors we got the last couple of weeks suggesting that Sony would “skip” the Cp+ event to get more spotlight on their new products. I will now try to get the date of the March announcement event. And let’s hope some of the rumored cameras (a7rII, A7000 and so) will be announced on that day too!

Sony says they will update many A-mount lenses. And they know internal 4K recording is highly requested.

The Japanese site Mapcamera interviewed Sony. The interview is in Japanese but our SAR readers Kuonji and Chaika translated some of the key info for us (Thanks!):

1) Currently, Sony has no plan to implement 4K internal recording on the A7s. However they recognize there is a huge request to get this feature in future cameras.
2) Sony is planning for making a new mark II A-mount lenses to replace old popular lenses i.e. 70-300, 24-70, 16-35. More to come in the future
3) Sony is still quite young in terms of mirrorless market, they think of themselves as a challenger, but because they are a challenger, they believe they can do a lot of innovative stuff.

Sony also said they cannot share any details about when the new FE lenses will be released.

Sony Artisan Brian Smith: “someone might just make a 50mp camera for less than 3700 bucks!”

5ds

Sony Artisan Brian Smith commented after the Canon 5Ds launch:

Canon fired the first shot in the Great Mega-Pixel War of 2015, announcing a pair of 50.6 mp Canon 5DS cameras – This is just the first shot! Expect to hear more announcements soon… Who knows, someone might just make a 50mp camera for less than 3700 bucks!

He is likely “hearing” the same rumors I got….sounds exactly like the A7rII to me ;)

Sony has now plenty of time to “fight back” with the A7rII as the Canon 5ds preorders will start on April 30 only at Amazon. And shipment is June/July.
