(SR5) The Samyang 35mm f/2.8 FE lens will be announced in mid June

Back in April Samyang did display that new 35mm f/2.8 autofocus FE lens at the Korean Photography Expo. It has the same specs and similar size of the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 FE lens. But it will be cheaper (no exact info yet). The autofocus performance is said to be similar to the Samyang 50mm FE.

Well a trusted source told us the lens will be announced within 2-3 weeks!

Still I wonder why Samyang did choose to make that lens. Would have loved to get something “new”. Maybe a 24mm or 28mm pancake?

(SR5) Sony China teases a new “compact camera” launch!

It ain’t over folks! There is one more Sony announcement which is going to happen this or the next week already! Sony China posted that teaser that clearly hints towards a new compact camera (Maybe RX model). In case you don’t remember what the first two cameras on the picture are…well this is the “Sony DSC-F1” camera. What was special on that camera is that the lens and flash could be rotated 180° for greater flexibility in shooting from many angles. This is the youtube video showing it:

We don’t have specs yet but based on the teaser we can assume:

  1. This might be an entirely new RX model and not a successor of an existing camera (no RX1 or as it seems not RX10 and RX100 neither).
  2. This might be a new High End compact camera (High End Selfie RX camera?)

But I really can’t figure out the full meaning of that teaser. You got an idea?

(SR3) Sony A7III launch rumored to be postponed from June to November

Image above shows the A7II with Gariz case

I got this info from two sources. One of the sources is also a trusted source who shared previously correct info about the A6500 and the A9 frame rate. He told me this about the new A7III:

a7III will be sold in November not in June. Nothing about specs. Sorry.

I ranked this rumor SR3 only because I am awaiting multiple confirmations for the postponement. And we don’t know the reason for the delay.

We have our own Facebook camera groups and pages you can join to discuss the upcoming new cameras in detail:
Sony A9 group and Sony A9 page.
Sony A7rIII group and Sony A7rIII page
Sony A7sIII group and Sony A7sIII page

Note: In groups you can post your own stuff like images, news and questions. While on pages you will read the specific camera news from SAR.

Stay tuned on SAR and subscribe the newsletter to get info when it matters:

So what’s next from Sony? 135mm FE, 400mm FE, RX camera….

Before to move on to the next bunch of Sony rumors let’s recap what we have posted so far:

Cameras:

  1. RX camera
    Back in March we reported about two cameras registered by Sony. One with the code “WW361847” (which turned out to be the A9) and one with the code “WW620081”. Sony usually defines FF E-mount cameras with the WW3 code series while the WW6 code series has been used so far for the RX100V only.
    Sony hasn’t been 100% reliable on that code structure but we can safely guess that Sony plans to introduce a new RX camera soon (probably in June).
  2.  New E-mount cameras
    No new E-mount camera will be launched within the next 1-2 months. But I will have more info to share about this soon…

Lenses:

  1. 135mm FE
    Sony is definitely developing a new 135mm (probably f/1.8) FE lens. Should be announced within the next 3-6 months
  2. 400mm FE
    Also coming within the next 3-6 months is a fast 400mm FE lens for sports photographers
  3. I also got some “hints” that there will be more Sony FE lenses during the second half of 2017
  4. Sigma, Tokina and Zeiss will announce new FE lenses too (within 2017)

Surprises:

  1. I got some early “whisper” about something “different”. It doesn’t sound like this is going to be announced soon (maybe in 2018). But I am working to have more solid info on this before to share anything on SAR

No info yet on new A-mount stuff :(

Readers should really follow our RSS feed, follow us on Facebook and Twitter if they don’t want to miss the Sony June/July news. And if you heard “something” about the new upcoming stuff contact me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com or use the contact form you see on the right top of this site. Thanks!
