(SR4) Sony A33 to be discontinued! (SR3) Sony A35 to be announced in April?

Share

I’m receiving rumors after rumors from many new and trusted sources. The latest rumor is a bit…surprising!

An important dealer (can’t reveal the name here) contacted me to say that Sony told them they will not sell anymore A290,A390,nex3 and the A33! He is not surprised about the first three cameras but “I don’t really understand why they stop so quickly the “production” or just the selling life (of the A33).
We know the A33 price dropped in US (Check here: Amazon, Adorama, B&H). Another new source told me weeks ago that Sony would introduce a new Alpha, the Sony A35 in April!I confess that I am a bit confused as it doesn’t make any sense to me to release such a camera. What do you think?!?!?

I ask my trusted sources if they can confirm or deny the rumor! Thanks!

In Summary: It sounds like Sony will announce an incredible amount of new cameras (and hopefully lenses) on April 4th right before the NAB show in Las Vegas. We do expect the new NEX-C3 (That’s SR5), a more advanced VG-10 model (SR3, with XLR, no name yet), the NXcam modular videocamera (SR5), the fullframe camcorder and 2-3 more new camcorders (SR5). If the A35 rumor turns out to be correct than we will have another translucent camera too! There should be new E-mount lenses too but I don’t have a 99% sure confirmation about that…yet!

In the meanwhile check if some store has officially announced the following cameras:
Sony A33 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Sony A290 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Sony A390 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unknown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources
SR5=almost certainly correct!
