After Fuji and Olympus also Nikon is trying to give some touch of “old” design to their digital cameras. Don’t know if it would be a wise move for Sony too. Let’s say, something like a Minolta X-700 (here on eBay) could be nice or not?

In October we had that big A7-A7r announcement. But it won’t be long until we will get our next big Sony event:
A trusted sources already unveiled to me that Sony will launch new APS-C and Full Frame cameras in Q1 2014 already! He couldn’t unveil more details, he only added one hint: One of the new cameras will be very loved by the SAR community
Note: From February 13 to 16 there will be the big CP+ show in Japan. Sounds like the right time for such an announcement!

Sigma loves to make huge fast tele lenses like the 500mm f/4.5 EX DG APO Autofocus Lens for Sony/Minolta A Mount (here at BHphoto). And it looks like there could be two more such lenses in 2014. According got Canonrumors Sigma will launch a new Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS and 400mm f/2.8 OS tele prime lens in 2014. A new 500mm and 800mm zoom lens could also be announced although CR says it’s not sure about it. Yep, finally some new great tele to take sports pictures or spy your neighborhood
P.S.: And a new tele lens from Tamron will be announced next week (via Photorumors).
Egami spotted a new Sony patent describing a sort of Full Frame NEX-5 alike camera body. This would become an insane small body! Yes, it’s possible to make such a camera but does it make sense if the FF lenses are so big? I doubt it Sony will launch a camera like that.
But on the other site one very trusted source already told me that there will be a couple of new FF E-mount bodies in 2014. So let’s see! I would prefer to get a NEX-7 alike FF camera first….
