The last few months have been very intriguing on the A-mount rumor front. As I told you before the A77 successor and the FF model planed for a summer release have been taken off the roadmap. And the SLT-A58 is probably the last APS-C model featuring the translucent tech mirror. So the question is…what’s going to happen now?
I am working on the details of the new roadmap and this is what I can share today:
1) The APS-C A-mount models will be mirrorless. I am not sure yet about the FF models.
2) Both FF and APS-C A-mount cameras will come in early 2014
I still have no reliable specs about the new cameras. But if sources are not playing me fool than these cameras will be a mayor step forward compared to previous generation cameras and not just small upgrades. I marked this rumor as SR4 (not SR5) because there is still almost a year to go and to be 99% sure of the rumor we have to hope Sony doesn’t change the roadmap in the meantime. Although, I think it’s pretty much safe to say that now the roadmap is very clear and approved.
Personal note: It’s a a very exciting time here in the hidden rumor world. I am giving my best to birng back some excitment on the A-mount world. The last two weeks have been the most busy A-mount rumor time I ever had on SAR. Thanks to all sources for helping me out!
