The A7II body and kits are in Stock at Sony Store US (Click here). And you also get a free case and battery charger ($179 value). And one of the very few Holiday deals that is still running is the refurbished NEX-5T double lens kit for $399 only on eBay US (Click here).
Dvinfo found images of the new Sony stuff. This is the first image of the Sony 4K Actioncamera. The $500 X100V is a 4K actioncamera with image stabilization which will be in Store by February. It costs $100 more than the GoPRO4 but unlike the GoPro the Sony comes with on lens stabilization. Keep in mind that the GoPRO Hero4 is the most sold overall(!) camera at Amazon US (ranking here). Let’s see if Sony can succeed to dethrone that hotseller!
There is also a new AX33 4K camcorder that will go on sale for $1,100 AX33 in February.
No E or E-mount stuff will be announced today. But we will not have to wait a long time. Only 4 weeks until the next Sony press announcement before CP+ ;)
(SR5) This is what Sony will announce today: HDR-AS200V action camera, FDR-X1000V, FDR-AXP35 and FDR-AX30 4K camcorders!
I got my hands on a list of products that Sony will announce today in Las Vegas (5pm Las Vegas time):
1) HDR-AS200V: Successor of the current Sony HDR-AS100V POV Action Cam. This is rumored to have 4K recording (Source: ActionCameraRumors).
2) Three (all 4K!) camcorders: FDR-X1000V, FDR-AXP35 and FDR-AX30
So far no new A and E-mount stuff (as expected).

Alexandre: “During this festive season, many girls in Bangkok had some Christmas costumes. It was very entertaining and I shot many pictures of them with my Sony A7R and the Zeiss lens 35mmF2.8 . sometimes I used the sony flash F43M. http://traveljournalist.com/pretty-model-santa-girl-bangkok-thailand-2014/“
