UPDATE: That rumor comes from an external website. There is no way I can check if the rumor is correct or not. But I can guarantee the specs of the A77 I posted from my sources are almost certainly correct
Inside the latest Sony consumer repair guide the A77 camera is listed (It costs $359 to repair it?).
A reminder. Tose are the specs of the camera we found through our sources:
The A77 is coming in mid July
Shipment start early October
Coming with new kit lens (A Sony 16-50mm zoom. Compared to the Zeiss 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 it will have a constant aperture and probably have a bit higher price. Zeiss 16-80mm price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.)
24 Megapixels (The combination of the new sensor+new Zeiss lens delivers 62% more resolution than the A55 16 Megapixel sensor.)
1080p/30fps, 720p/60fps and 720p/30fps high-definition video
AF fine-tuning capabilities. A source told us that it has an improved focusing system (quite fast and accurate).
3 Million dot OLED viewfinder (more than double of the resolution fo the current Sony A55/33 viewfinder.)
According to our sources it will be a little bit more expensive than the 60D. Canon 60D price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay
It will take CF+SD+MS cards
No flip-up mode to allow shooting without this extra sheet of glass in place
1.000 pictures with one battery
