A trusted source got news from Sony saying that they will display two new cameras on Thursday April 23. No E-mount. And if the Sony roadmap is still valid also no A-mount cameras. So this has to be the new RX stuff. RX100m4 and/or RX1X or maybe something else not “rumored” yet? I certainly would love to get a medium format Sony camera and you? I know, my dreams sometimes go too far…
Sony has a scheduled press briefing on Thursday April 23. And Wikileaks hinted that new RX and A7 and A6xxx cameras would be announced within April and June. So far this is what we can hope to get soon:
To be announced on April 23?
– RX1-X camera (specs unclear but likely a FF camera with 35mm f/1.8 Zeiss lens).
– RX100m4 (20MP Four Thirds sensor camera with 4K recording)
To be announced in May?
– A7rII (36Mp, 5 axis and same A7II body improvements)
– A6xxx (24MP APS-C sensor and 3 or 5 axis stabilization).
P.S.: A-mount news (camera and lenses) will follow in August/September?
By the way. Also the Sony Canada marketing roadmap seems to confirm there will be new cameras. Their RX (late April) and Alpha (mid May) campaign would match those announcements.
Jerry: “I have now owned both a Sony a7 and an a7II. One of the very few shortcomings, as noted in practically all reviews on these cameras though, is the fact that if you want to use its LCD finder on the back, and hold the camera down at waist level, which in many cases shades the camera’s eyepiece sensor heavily, the sensor within the EVF’s rubber hood thinks the camera is being held to your eye and turns the LCD completely off in favor of the EVF only. Of course, there’s the menu setting on the camera to set one or the other SOLELY, but this is a hassle when you need to switch back and forth frequently . I finally discovered a simple fix to remedy this very aggravating situation using a product called Light Dims, which are little inexpensive, stick-on pre-cot pieces of a neutral gray shading material actually made for putting over glaring, bright LED’s that are overly bright and irritate you at night or in dark places. By simply cutting a 3mm X 5mm piece of this material and applying it over the left half of the EVF sensor window, the sensor functions perfectly and the LCD remains on even in very low light, plus the EVF still switches on again automatically when the camera is held up to your eye! This is an incredibly simple fix that many Sony a7 users have wrestled with for months and have hoped and hoped that Sony would correct via a firmware update! It seems to work for all the Sony a7 models including the a7, a7R, a7II and a7S. These little gadgets are available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/LightDims-Original-Strength%C2%AE-Minimal-Packaging/dp/B00CLVEQCO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428490110&sr=8-1&keywords=lightdims) or directly from the company at: www.lightdims.com I am in no way affiliated with the company and have no vested interest. I just discovered this from another post on a Sony a7 forum, tried it and was super impressed.”
Hi there, Long time lurker/first time poster here. Before anyone gets all up in a hoot, I do know and understand the obvious differences between these lenses i.e. price, AF/MF, aperture etc... that being said I am currently trying to decide between the 2. I need something on the long end and price is […]

Apologies in advance for my newbie question.I want to purchase a spare battery for a Sony a6000. There seems to be a tremendous price range on Amazon.I've seen them as low as two for $26.99, and as high as $49 each.Is there a difference in the batteries?Are there any specs one should look for before […]
I just purchased this lens used, and it randomly started making an abnormal sound. It doesn't consistently do this, and will stop if I turn the camera off and then turn it back on. I haven't been able to find out any information about why this might be happening Watch the first 15 seconds of […]
I recently (and excitedly) upgraded from my trusty a57 to an a77 mkii. I have been using the a77 mkii for around 3 weeks now and have spent a very long time (and lots of shots!) trying to set this af micro adjustment up to obtain sharp in-focus shots, but the af sensor seems to […]
