Sony fixed the RX1rII issue! Official press text to be released soon (maybe tomorrow).

RX1rII

A trusted source sent me this regarding the RX1RII production stop:

Apparently issue with new rx1 camera was caused by light leak when shooting under harsh direct light. Light was getting inside the camera only with evf up. Cameras that were sold with that issue will be replaced, new shipment of cameras doesn’t have that problem anymore. There should be official announcement tomorrow, dealers were already asked to trace back customers that bought rx1rm2
Good news is that they traced the problem themselves and didn’t follow Nikon “lets hope that no one will find out” path 😉

(SR5) This is the logo of the new Sony “G-Master” lens line! First lens is the 24-70mm f/2.8.

G-master

Yes! We have the final proof Sony is about to launch a new f/2.8 zoom series! And we also found the officially Sony trademarked logo of this new lens series called “G Master”.
Sony will soon (at CP+?) announce the first of these lenses, the 24-70mm f/2.8 GM. The document in our hands doesn’t unveil any other details of the lens but this should be a Full Frame E-mount lens. It’s yet unclear how Sony will differentiate this lens line from current Zeiss zooms or Sony A-mount f/2.8 zooms. Maybe those are powerzooms or “cine-friendly” lenses like the Zeiss Master series?

To recap Sony is “rumored” to launch many new products before or at the Cp+ show in February. These are some of the stuff that could be announced soon:
New A6100
New HX400 successor
Another new mirrorless (unclear what it is or if that is the A99 successor…)
New GM lens line (24-70mm f/2.8)
New FE roadmap with 85mm fast prime and at least a telephoto lens
Zeiss will launch the 18mm Batis

Stay tuned on SAR, its’ going to be very exciting here on SAR the coming days 😉

(SR4) Sony to announce at least three new cameras: A6100, HX400 successor and a third “new mirrorless”!

Back in early December a trusted source shared us the image and correct specs of the new AS50 action camera that then was launched at CES (article here). So let’s hope he is correct too on the rumor he just shared me today! He said Sony is about to announce at least three new cameras:

  1. The a6100 is coming soon
  2. There might be a successor to the hx400 coming as well.
  3. he also mentioned a new mirrorless camera in the lineup…”no specifics about this one. yes…a completely new model….take this with a grain of salt, because sony is really keeping us in the dark, but it might be true.

I don’t know what that third camera could be (maybe A5xxx, A7000 or A7rIII, A99II (sort of mirrorless or not?) or maybe something completely new?).

I also do expect the new FE lens roadmap and prototypes to be shows at or shortly after the Cp+ show. There will be also a new Zeiss Batis 18mm lens.

Techart is also considering to make Leica R Contax CY and Nikon AI mount autofocus adapters!

techleica

Techart created quite a buzz by announcing the development of a M-mount to Sony E-mount autofocus adapter! And you can see it at work on the video below.

But there is more to come! The developer of the M-mount autofocus adapter said he plans to create three more of those kind of adapters:

R to E-mount autofocus adapter for Leica R lenses (here on eBay).
CY to E-mount autofocus adapter for Contax Yashica lenses (here on eBay).
Ai to E-mount autofocus adapter for Nikon Ai lenses (here on eBay).

The M-mount adapter will ship in late January-early February. There is yet no info about then other three adapters will ship.

(SR4) A “confirmation” on the A6100 delivery (in Stock end of March)

I previously reported that at last the A6100 will be in Stock in March. Now two more sources confirmed the info. One of them who correctly shared (A68 data and specs) wrote:

A6100 – it should arrive in stores in EU at the end of March

Additionally:

AS200 and X1000 Actioncam replacements are already have been given official internal code names, they’re planed to be launched before summer sales pick. They are rumours that they will feature balanced optical steady shot know from consumer cameras 😉

In 2015 Sony delayed the A6100 launch twice because of lack of competition. As a proof of that see the Sony Wikileaks leaked Sony roadmap for Spring 2015:

Bildschirmfoto 2016-01-12 um 09.42.41

I guess with the launch of the new X-PRo2 and PEN-F time has come to release the “updated” A6100.
