(SR2) New 400mm f/4.0 lens to come later this year.

Image on top: The current 500mm f/4.0 G lens.

A new source told me that Sony plans to launch a new 400mm f/4.0 A-mount lens by end of this year. No info about pricing and lens design yet!

Oh and please Sony. Make it be a tiny bit cheaper than the $13,000 500mm f/4.0 G lens :)

(SR4) Trusted source A99 and A58 will remain for sale for a longer time.

A trusted source said that even with a possible future new A99II or A58II camera release the A99 and A58 will remain for sale for this year. I have yet no reliable info about the new A-mount cameras that will be announced at Photokina but it’s sure these will use brand new autofocusing systems while the FF A-mount camera sensor may be the same used by the current A7r.
