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?
