(SR3) Finally some A99 successor rumor. Coming mid September and has 4K recording.


A source finally managed to gather some info about the next A-mount camera. He told me that:

– A99II was planed to be released along with the A7II back in November. But Sony decided to work on a more advanced version of the camera.
– The A99II is now scheduled to be announced in mid-September
– It has internal 4K recording and new sensor
– It will be launched along a new 24-105mm f/4.0 lens and a new Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 SSM.
– Still not sure if also the 135mm f/1.8 SSM will be announced among the A99II

p.S.: Discuss the specs on our new SonyAlphaForum (Click here).

Mick: “Hi. I’m a pro photographer. I’d describe myself as a working stiff. Not famous or rich but I make a living from it shooting mostly industrial and corporate photography. I used to use Canon exclusively until about a year ago and now I am using only Sony gear. I have written a blog entry about it though it’s mostly a lens focused article rather than camera focused I thought you and your readier might be interested: http://www.mickryan.com/blog/2015/5/19/going-solo-with-sony
