This is the kind of rumor which in most cases are wrong. A dpreview forum user posted following text:
“Today I was at Mediamarkt (an European chain of stores) and checking the prices of a the Canon 550D and 580EX flash. I asked for some advice from a sales person, and he urged me not to buy the 550D and to wait a little bit longer. According to him Sony will introduce 4 new camera’s arround april/may. The A1000, in the 2999 euro price range, aimed at the professionals, a A7xx , a A6xx, and a A4xx model.
According to him the Sony A6xx will have better specs than the Canon 550D.
Sounds exciting, let’s hope he isn’t pulling my leg”
