Source 1:

Sonys next thing at e-mount are two prime lenses. one large prime for wildlife and portrait 100mm at f 2.0- one vastly open wide angle 24mm

Source 2:

The sony A7S III that will be anounced next spring will be the first interchangeable lens camera featuring a RGBW sensor. This will result in an sensitivity increase of 84%. Additional improvements and the cooper wired backlight sensor will result in a total of over 1 fstop of noise improvement

Source 3: Sony A7III

The A7III will have dual card slots and a much faster AF system.I was speaking to a Sony rep who assured me that the newer A7III and above will have these two features.Those were my big two concerns, so I didn’t ask about anything else. I’m a horrible source


Notes on those kind of (im-)possible rumors:

  • Fake rumors sent by so claimed sources that are known to create fake rumors are NOT included. What you see here are messages I got from unknown sources where I have no track of any “rumor history”
  • It’s by readers request that I create this sum up of low ranked rumors. But please remind all that these are not rumors from trusted sources and don’t count me accountable on those kind of very low ranked rumors :)
  • The last year a couple of those rumors were right (RX1rII and A6300 specs). So miracles sometimes can happen :)
