According to SonyAlphaRumors sources Sony will show the new Sony A700 successor protoype(!) at Photokina. The camera is NOT ready for the market. The final release is expected by early 2011. Sony could share some more details about the camera specs (like it was when they showed Sony A900 prototype). The camera will have a bigger body size than the Sony A55 and very likely a new 18 Megapixel sensor to be on par with the Canon 7D resolution.
A new SonyAlphaRumors source gave us some more info about the A77. He said the A77 has 32 AF points, a new and better sensor than the one used for the Sony A55, a water resistant body, and same battery but much lower recovery time at high fps.

And again according to our sources the NEX7 will not be announced at Photokina. We don’t know yet if Sony will show a NEX7 prototype but the camera is due for release in January-February 2011. The reason for the “delay”? Answer: Sony is currently evaluating the Sony NEX market reaction.
We are sure Zeiss is working on new E-mount lenses but we don’t know if Zeiss will show them at Photokina. According to our sources they are working on 5 lenses that are based on the ZM lenses design (Click here to see them on eBay)
What else? We don’t know yet if Sony will finally release the 500mm G lens. There are also rumors (form external sources) about new Zeiss lenses but we can’t confirm those rumors now.
