A fake A600 rendering via Photographic Central
One of my trusted sources just sent me a quick note saying that the A600 rumor posted by C.Garrard isn’t correct. According to that source the A600 rumor is fake and he goes also one step further saying that there is no plan within Sony to make a DSLR camera in future. This can of course change, but in the short and mid term you should not expect any new optical viewfinder in any Sony camera.
I want to highlight that while the source is usually very good in providing Sony insider news the rumor hasn’t been confirmed by other trusted sources yet. So please take it not as a definitive 100% news. As usual I hope more sources can confirm or deny this soon. I for myself hope the rumor is NOT true :)
UPDATE_2: Another TOP source just confirmed that he never heard about a new A600 model. And in defense of my friend Carl I want to add that maybe Sony developed the A600 but in the end decided to not launch it at all for some reason. I know from my experience as rumor-writer that this can happen.
P.S.: Crutchfield discontinued the A580, which will probably the last DSLR camera ever made by Sony.
Reminder: Be sure to be here on SAR on March 13th as there will be a major Sony announcement! It will become pretty busy here on SAR the next days :)
