I reported previously the A77 successor would come in Spring. According to one trusted source the new APS-C A-mount camera will be in Stock in worldwide store for June. It will be the official replacement for the A77. And another news is that there will be no A65 successor. So expected one APS-C A-mount camera only.
I also have been told that this isn’t a small upgraded camera. There are some brand new tech inside. Hope to get 99% reliable specs info as soon as possible. I have been told Sony developed a couple of different prototypes and they are trying to hide what the final specs will be.
I am still not sure when the camera will be announced but my guess is for April. Before that we will have a new NEX-7 successor announcement (likely in 2-3 weeks from now).
Oh, one more thing: I didn’t get an official release period for the A-mount FF yet. But it’s coming don’t worry

SAR reader Mark linked me to that great Sony site: http://discover.store.sony.com/be-moved/ It shows you some famous Sony product constructions displayed in a nice interactive way. Now the weird thing is that Sony added a piece of cheese on the Sony RX1. Is it a marketing gag or what?
Let’s see if you can give us an answer
Image of the fake A95 entry
I see there is some buzz on the web because the Chinese Site PConline added a Sony A95 camera into their database.
Just to be clear. That site always creates such fake entries to be promoted. It’s years now they are doing so. Sometimes they have been right on the camera names but just because they read rumors or because it’s easy to guess the name of a possible camera successor.
