(SR2) A Sony camera roadmap for 2012-2013?


Our Chinese readers shared a link to a XITEK post from a mysterious source. Our Chinese readers said he is a good source but I have no records about him so please take everything with a grain of salt. I repeat this is not a rumor from MY trusted sources!

Here is the camera roadmap from Sony according to the Chinese source:

a600, 1830 megapixel, 2012 (March) -> The A580 successor
a950 (a1), 36 million pixels, 2013 (February) -> The A900 successor

a37, 16 million pixels, 2012 (March) -> The A580 successor
a57, 16 million pixels, 2012 (May) -> The A580 successor
a99, 24 million pixels, 2012 (September)

NEX-F3 2012 (March) -> The NEX-C3 successor
NEX-5G, 18.3 million pixels, 2012 (September) -> The NEX-5n successor
Fullframe NEX in late 2013.

I would be really (positively) surprised if Sony would launch an optical viewfinder DSLR. I hope it’s true but I am very very sceptical! But just for fun, let’s do a poll to let Sony know what of the “rumored” cameras you would like to see for real:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.


Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
