Hot! New Sony E-mount roadmap.

Dear Japanese readers! We really need your help on this! The image on top shows the new Sony E-mount roadmap info that has been just posted by Sony Japan. It says that from now on we can expect Sony to release a minimum of five new E-mount lenses every year. And this year one Zeiss and one G lens will come too. By the way, let’s not forget that three “extra” Zeiss primes designed for Sony E-mount and Fuji X mount will come too!

And yes, there is no sign at all of a possible A-mount roadmap :(

Thanks all the super fast and gentle SAR readers that helped me to translate this!

Important message to a source…

Sorry SAR reader to bother you. An important anonymous source just sent me an info via contact form and I have no other way to contact him than writing a public post.

Dear Source: The link is not working. Can you provide me the info via other resources? You have a text or screenshot to share? Create a fake gmail account if you want to contact me anonymously. Thanks! I can tell you is that your info is 100% correct. Not 80-90%. Got exactly the same info from other sources too.

P.S.: Again sorry readers if I have to do that and you don’t know what’s going on. It’s delicate and a very long term rumor that I am working on since a few months now.
