Sony A7s listed on Amazon US and 43photo (with likely wrong price).

Share

Thew new Sony A7s is now listed at Amazon (Click here) with no pricing just like at BHphoto or Digitalrev. An US store is listing the A7s for $2,500 (Click here). But I am pretty sure that’s a “pure guess price”. Interesting to note is that WexUk removed the A7s preorder page after they said they got the price from Sony (2500 pounds which is around $4000).

USA: Sony USAmazon and BHphoto.
Europe:  Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, SE, FI, PL.

(SR5) One more Sony announcement around May 1-2 (A77II and maybe more to come).

Share

Image on top shows the silhoutte of the current Sony A77.

I have been told that there is a possible Sony announcement on May 1-2. We can be 100% sure there will be a new A-mount A77II camera announcement. I am still not sure if there will be also new A and FE mount lenses. The A77II is expected to have an updated 24 Meagpixel sensor and the camera is trimmed for pseed (super fast AF, no EVF lag, increased fps and so on).

Stay tuned on SAR! The A7s is here but it isn’t over yet with rumors 🙂

It finally did happen in Korea: Sony sells more system cameras than Canon :)

Share

Sony shares climbing during the last three months (December-January-February). Image source: Blog Naver.

Sony’s dream to overturn Canon on the system camera market became truth in one country: South Korea! In February Sony beat Canon by a margin of 0.1% only and now owns 33,163% of the overall system camera market in Korea. The reason hwy this happens is easy: Asian countries are shifting towards mirrorless system cameras while Europe and North American stills tick to DSLR systems. In Q4 of 2013 the mirrorless sales iN Korea climbed up to 58% of the system camera market (DSLR drops to 42%).

Sony now has to focus on “Western countries” to repeat the success they have in Asia.
