Sony A3500 to be launched in Europe soon…

For now the A3500 was only available in Asia (See Sony Australia). But latest “working pages” on Sony Germany suggest that this camera will be announced soon in Europe too. Nothing exciting I know…I promise to post some more heartbreaking rumors soon :)

Reminder: A5100 is coming too as leaked on Friday (article here).

UPDATE: Steve Huff, Sansmirror FE lens info are FAKE.

The info shared yesterday by Steve Huff  (50mm f/1.2 Zeiss) and some time ago by Sansmirror (FE lens roadmap) is almost certainly completely FAKE. They took for real that FAKE roadmap posted by a Chinese readers (See article here). YOu see the roadmap info he posted on top. So their info is wrong unless I am wrong and Steve and Thom got info from their own sources…

P.S.: Just to be clear: I don’t bash on Thom and Steve. It happens to myself to post wrong rumors from time to time :)

(UPDATE: Fake!): Steve Huff says Sony will launch a 50mm f/1.2 FE Zeiss lens. And new A7s reviews.

(Image Source:

Steve Huff posted his A7s review and I don’t know if that’s just his speculation or an info he got from Sony but he writes:

Sony has some new lenses planned for 2014 and 2015, one of then being an ultra wide zoom and a Zeiss 50 1.2.

UPDATE: SAR readers digged Steve’s “rumor” and it seems like the info is completely fake and based on a fake roadmap I posted a while ago: (See article here). Of course I wrote that this roadmap floating around the web is almost certainly 99% fake. But I guess some people didn’t get my message :)

That said the official Sony roadmap says a fast prime lens is on schedule. Although I would prefer to get a fast 35mm or 85mm lens first instead of the 50mm f/1.2. Or what would you like to get?

And here are soem more A7s tests: Sony A7S Sample Images at Photographyblog and Sony A7s silent shutter test by ThePhoBlographer on Instagramm. [UPDATE: Photographyblog just published the full A7s review.]
