In January 1985, Minolte released the
(which was called “Alpha 7000″ in Japan and “
” in US). It was the first SLR camera with built-in housing passive autofocus system on the basis of phase detection. And at the same time it came with the new A-type bayonet lens mount, which is still used in Sony’s alpha cameras is.
And in the same month Minolta also released twelve brand new autofocus lenses!!! Sony…you could learn from it
The lens were all optimized to the needs of the autofocus system. Five bayonet electrical contacts for the data transmission were installed. In 1991 three more contacts were added.
Nice history or not? Let’s hope Sony will soon announce new Zeiss Lenses!
Sony Bloggie Review
Sony Earnings Announcement for Q3. After losing quarters Sony manages to close the fiscal third quarter of 2009 with an operating profit. The quarterly sales of digital cameras is higher than the quarterly sales of the year 2008. But the truth is Sony managed to archieve such results by reducing costs and the closure of production facilities.

Finally we were able to get some infos from our trusted sources. There will be definitely new cameras at PMA.
Expect an announcement shortly before the Feb 21. What’s sure is that there will ne new Sony DSC cameras.
One source wrote us “We know that two new point and shoots will be announced, the TX5 and one other that no one seems to know anything about.”
The big question is if Sony will announce new Alpha cameras and the new mirrorless camera/s. When I asked my sources about that they only answered me with a Big Smile on their face. They are torturing me and I am torturing you
I only received some pieces of infos but I am waiting for a confirmation from other sources…
Let me express my “emotions” -> Running a rumor website like this is hard but also exciting. There is a lot of hidden work behind every rumor…and I feel there is something BIG coming from Sony!
Like you I read many forums and I always find a lot of people saying Sony should make “that and that” better. I am curious to know what you want from Sony!
You have three votes!
P.S: Let me know if I should add something to the poll!
