(SR5) Also A7s pricing and two new (FE?) lenses to be announced on April 30.

Share

The official Sony FE lens roadmap.

According to one of our trusted sources (Thanks DrPhotorumor) Sony will also announce the final A7s pricing on May 1. Those interested to buy the camera will finally get preorder links on all major stores like Sony USAmazon and BHphoto..

The one more interesting rumor I got says that there will be two new lenses too. Well, we know the A77II will get a slightly updated kit lens but I hope this isn’t what the source meant so say :)

If the Sony roadmap didn’t fool us with the timing than these could be two new Zeiss FE lenses. I do hope sources can confirm or deny this after reading this post. Just drop me an anonymous message using the contact form on the top right of the browser or write me using a fake email account at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. Thanks!

In summary this is what Sony could launch on May 1 10am London time:
Sony A77II: An “upgraded” version of the current A-mount A77. With new 24MP sensor and Wifi, faster Af and EVF.
Sony RX100M3: Features an amazing 2470mm f/1.8-2.8 lens and a pop-up viewfinder
Sony A7s: pricing.
Two lenses: Likely two new FE Zeiss?

(SR4) Sony product announcement on Wednesday afternooon (April 30)

Share

The new A77II A-mount camera hinted by a Sony roadmap slide back in late 2013.

Small correction on the announcement date. A trusted source told me that Sony plans to unveil the new products on Wednesday afternoon at the London Gala for the Worldphoto event (Source: Worldphoto). Well previous rumors I got from Asia said announcement would be on May 1 and indeed in Asia it will be May 1 by then :)

I still have not the exact hour of the announcement but it should be around 10am May 1 (London time). Will let you know if I can find a stream of the event.

So far this is what we can expect to see:
Sony A77II: An “upgraded” version of the current A-mount A77. With new 24MP sensor and Wifi, faster Af and EVF.
Sony RX100M3: Features an amazing 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens and a pop-up viewfinder

I have been told there is more than that and I hope I can give you more details about that in a couple of hours!

Zeiss 16-70mm E-mount lens discontinued? Replacement coming on May 1 in Asia (April 30 in Eu and AM)?

Share

As you know last week I told you the 20mm E-mount pancake lens would likely be updated soon. Well, it seems like this could be not the only one lens being updated soon. There are reports on Dpreview forum with readers saying the lens has been told to be discontinued (including by BHphoto store). There may be a chance to see an updated version this week already when the A77II and RX100M3 will be announced on May 1.

P.S.: Thanks to the anonymous reader for sending me the links!
