(SR2) Some more A7rII and 59MP camera info from a new source…

Share

This one is from a new source and not confirmed by any trusted source or leak. But lately few trusted source proved to be wrong (wrong announcement date) and some non-trusted source proved to be right (Batis lens). So let’s see if that new source is spot on. I hope he is wrong because it would mean the A7rII will not get IBIS! Read here:

*Sony will be revealing the Apsc camera within a week.

*A7rII will remain with the 36mp sensor….Release will be before June but not announcement. No IBIS on the new A7rII but will have the new body/ergo style…Sony plans on keeping the IBIS(A7), R, and the S all exclusive to attract different markets in the photo/video world.. $-]

*Ax, will have the 59mp sensor and new raw sensor…(Hint for announcement: 5dsr will be heart broken when it compete against sales)

Would really be surprising if Sony would NOT add IBIS on the A7rII…

(SR4) More confirmations about E-mount announcement around May 21.

Share

May 20-21-22 announcement:
I keep receiving more confirmations that there is a major E-mount camera announcement next week around May 20-21-22! I also got some more info about cameras I will publish soon after I get some confirmations from other sources…

Today Sony’s Australia event:
Sony Australia had a meeting today with journalists and photographers but their touch and try session has been made with the current camera/lenses . Like it happened with the A7II and the recent FE lens announcements it looks like Sony prefers to announce new products in “solo” without any special journalist/photographers meeting like other companies do. Anyway, there are only 5-6 days now we have to wait to see the new E-mount stuff!

Stay tune don SAR and join our newsletter to get the info the moment those new cameras get announced:
