(SR4) Next Sony surprise: Sony to announce the A7II E-mount with 5 axis stabilization soon?

FacebookShare

The Olympus OMD 5 axis stabilization diagram.

Well, it looks like Sony has plenty of surprises on the horizon. Digicameinfo reports that Sony will soon announce the α7II (ILCE-7M2). The “updated” A7 camera has following features:
5-axis in body stabilization (same as the Olympus E-M1)
Tilting 3 inches 1.23 million dot LCD screen
Shape and grip design are different than current A7 series.
Comes along the new VG-C2EM vertical grip (it takes two NP-FW50 batteries)

The weird thing is that SAR sources tell there is a second(!) new PRO model coming in January/February with:
– Advanced version of the A6000 hybrid AF system
– Weather sealed and mroe high quality body
– Sony will also NOT re-use the 36MP (A7r) or 24MP (A7 and A99) sensor.

There is yet no other info about sensor specs and final release of the camera. Also to be answered is if that is just an “updated” A7 or the new rumored A9. The addition of the 5 axis stabilization is definitely a MASSIVE welcome news! I just hope Digicameinfo sources are right on this (they usually are). Stay tuned on SAR!

(SR5) New PRO Full Frame A9 E-mount camera is placed above the A7 series.

FacebookShare


Fake A9r rendering at SonyAlphaForum (post your dream A9 renderings there!).

One more thing about the new E-mount PRO FF camera coming in late January or early February. I have been told by trusted sources this camera will not be a A7/s/r replacement! It will be the first of a new line. The sources didn’t share the name of the camera but it’s highly likely this camera will be named “Sony A9“.
The camera will cost more than the current A7 models. I also have been told the Sony A7s will also see a first smaller price drop before the A9 announcement.

Specs of the A9 are not known yet but it has the fastest AF of any Sony mirrorless camera yet (more advanced than the one used by the A6000). Sony will also NOT re-use the 36MP (A7r) or 24MP (A7 and A99) sensor. Trusted sources told me the sensor is brand new.

Stay tuned on SAR, we have an exciting time ahead!

New Zeiss 16-35mm reviews and size comparison.

The new Zeiss 16-35mm FE is now shipping almost everywhere and I keep receiving more and more tests. First of all see the picture on top to see how much smaller the A7+Zeiss combo is compared to equivalent Canon and Nikon kits. Also note that DxOmark ranked the Zeiss as best here (although it beats the Nikon only by a hair). And here the new tests:
