Tomorrow (April 21) Sony has a press presentation. They may announce the GM 70-200mm pricing

Bildschirmfoto 2016-04-08 um 09.27.11

Sony has a big event in London because of the Sony World Press Awards. And Sony invited the press for a product presentation at 10.45 London time. They will display their new FE lenses. And I hope Sony will also finally announce the FE 70-200mm GM lens pricing. The lens is supposed to start shipping in May already.

Let’s hope the GM price isn’t much higher than the Nikon 70-200mm and Canon 70-200mm competition!

(SR2) Unlikely A9 rumor says it features a new 150 MP sensor

Bildschirmfoto2013-11-11um164628_zps4eb22eaa

Some fake A9 rendering found on the web

Sometimes anonymous rumor are worth to be mentioned if they are unlikely to happen. I just got this from a new source and therefore just take it super easy:

A A9R with a full format sensor featuring only 2.4µm pixels. That results in an astonishing 150MP total sensor size.
But here is the kicker it will feature a “low res” mode where 4 pixels are coupled analog – resulting in a 37MP sensor with 2 fstops more sensitivity and dynamic range.

The rumor may be unlikely but that Sony can do that is certainly possible!

Stay tuned on SAR: Sony live streaming from Las Vegas at 2pm

Bildschirmfoto 2016-04-17 um 07.41.33

Today at 2pm Las Vegas time (22:00 London time) you can follow the live streaming of the Sony product announcement here on SonyAlphaRumors. If you are visiting the NAB show here you is the list fo the Sony events: http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/show-nab/

What is likely to be announced:
– For sure new 4K stuff like camcorders and so
– Some 8K stuff (prototype or real products)
– Maybe finally some info about the 70-200mm f/2.8 GM FE lens price

What is unlikely to be announced…but we still can dream about it :)
– New Sony FF camera with high video quality performance (Sony A9?)

So don’t be upset if Sony will not announce the A9 today. As usual Sony tends to prefer to announce big stuff off the shows to get the full spotlight. So don’t worry if today may not be the big day, the camera is coming for real this year!

(SR5) Sony A9 size info…

A9_size
A7rII vs Canon 5DIII size comparison (CameraSize).

Last week I reported that a highly trusted source confirmed Sony will launch a higher than A7 model (let’s call it “A9” for now). It will have dual XQD card slot and unlimited RAW burst. The same source also added a small info about the camera size:

“The size will be bigger than A7RII, but smaller than conventional DSLR, such as 5D3.”

The source did not tell us when the camera will be announced. As you know on Sunday at 2pm Las Vegas time Sony has a major product announcement event. But it’s absolutely unclear if the Sony A9 will be announced on Sunday or much later at Photokina. I know the NAB show is for broadcasters. But Sony introduced the A7s at the NAB show two years ago. And the A9 certainly would have a lot of advanced new video features. So it’s not illogical that Sony could use this event for a new A9 launch. But that said…this is all pure speculation. So don’t dream too much, there may be “only” new camcorders on Sunday :)

SAR readers are welcome comment this post with their wish list for the A9 camera! And join the Sony A9 facebook group ;)

Sony is inviting many photographers on the Sunday NAB event: New Sony FF camera coming?

NAB-Show-2016-Facebook

A source told me that Sony invited many photographers at their Las Vegas NAB event on Sunday. This is highly unusual for Sony and you know…where there is smoke there is fire. I have absolutely no solid rumor yet, but I am starting to believe Sony announce a new Full Frame E-mount camera this Sunday.

So please mark that on your calendar: I will embed the live video stream of the event which is set to start on Sunday April 17 at:
2pm Las Vegas time Las Vegas
22:00 in London
23:00 in Berlin
