UPDATE: Strange Student(?) poll hints a launch of a completely new mirrorless system camera.



UPDATE: It seem liks a Student and not Sony(!) launched that new survey at the University of Amsterdam: So this is no relevant news anymore. Anyway, just for the record:

They ask many question. And once they go in detail with a camera proposal:

Sony is considering the introduction of a new model of Mirrorless Digital Camera at the price of 1300€.
This new camera will be the first model of an entire new producline Mirrorless Digital Cameras priced at the same point of Sony’s Mirrorless Digital Cameras price range, which fluctuates from 400€ to 2300€.
The new model will be named ”PicYou” and will include models for both amateur and professional photographers. A wide range of lenses and accessories will be available as well. Sony PicYou will provide to the users exactly the same quality features of current Sony’s Digital Mirrorless Cameras.

If it’s a student than for sure there will be no such new system :)
