Is the A7000 the “one more thing” from Sony?


Bildschirmfoto 2015-05-25 um 07.31.29

The new A7rII and new RX cameras got announced just like the leaked Sony camera roadmap “predicted”. But there is one piece of the puzzle still missing. The “A6xxx series” camera. That camera was scheduled to be released before the A7rII (according to sources) but has been delayed because of overheating/hardware issues. So it’s yet unclear if that camera will still be announced in June. Weeks ago an (usually) good source said Sony had the plan to launch that camera around mid June. This means…this week. But there is yet absolutely no 100% guarantee this will happen.

So far it’s rumored that the camera is placed above the A6000 and will NOT replace it. It’s more of a NEX-7 successor and it’s likely to be named “A7000″. If the camera doesn’t get announced this month than it’s highly likely Sony pushed the release back to the next Sony announcement period in September.

Rumors aside: What’s your wish list for the A7000?

The NEX-7 tri navi controls.

Not as terribly expensive as previous Hasselblad Sony clones if you consider the 28-70mm FE lens a nice box and strap are included in the final price.

(SR5) Leaked! Hasselblad version of the Sony A7r!!!

Look here! Hasselbad will soon announce the luxury version of the Sony A7r! These are the very first images leaked via Chiphell. We don’t know yet what the name of the camera will be. So far the other Hasselblad Sony clones are called Stellar (Click here), Lunar (Click here) and Hasselblad HV ($7,999 off on BH!).

A bit strange though they launch the expensive A7r clone after the Sony A7rII announcement!

Small update on A7rII and A7000 rumors….(Sony announcement in 1-2 weeks)

Bildschirmfoto 2015-05-25 um 07.31.29

P.S.: The leaked official Sony roadmap (October 2014). Shows A7, A6 and RX camera announcement are (or were) planned.

This is just a short update on the A7rII and A7000 rumors. Here are some of the talks I head:

1) A couple of store owners said they have been told by Sony about a new A7rII and A7000 (or whatever the final name will be). They started to get info about those cameras back in March but Sony went quiet the last 1-2 months.
2) Two trusted sources still confirm that Sony had (or has) issues with the A7000 hardware. They don’t know if Sony solved them by now.
3) Two(!) of my trusted sources have been told by Sony that they have a mid June announcement. The sources are aware that Sony postponed some of the camera releases. They will send us a note as soon as Sony confirms the exact announcement date! And hopefully no delay this time!!!

Overall: I hope you can forgive me for that confusing time. But it never happened before that Sony had such issues on the release of cameras. I am working to find out the exact reason of why this happened. I should get a confirmation within the end of this week if we are going to see the A7000 and A7rII next week already!

A look into the future: Some “major” stuff should be announced by Sony during the second half of the year. I hope to learn from y sources if that roadmap has not change unlike the A7000 and A7rII delay.
