(SR5) Sony announcement next week (around November 5th).


For the third time in row this year Sony is having a product launch AFTER a big show. I have been told Sony will have a products launch press event next week around November 5th. I say “around” because I don’t know in which time zone the source is and it may well be a day earlier or later in other time zones.

For sure there will be the new Sony A68 A-mount camera. And note that Sony FE lens roadmap says a “large aperture prime” lens should be due in autumn. Let’s hope there is no delay on that one!
