In less than 24hours we will know everything about the new RX1R, RX100MII and whatever else may be announced. I don’t know yet if Sony will also announce their first hybrid smartphone-Cybershot cameras. I certainly hope so! No A or E-mount news is expected for tomorrow but I would happy if Sony could surprise us here too! After all the new firmware update is coming soon so they may hint about it tomorrow (that’s just a hope…not a rumor).
The announcement is likely to be made at around 6-7am London time. As usual you are invited to be online at SonyAlphaRumors. I will give you live updates about all news, tests and every other interesting bits I can find on the web. And here comes a reminder of what’c coming tomorrow:
The Sony RX1R: Same camera (and same lens) as the current RX1 but it misses the Anti Aliasing filter.
The Sony RX100MKII: It has an “updated” 20 megapixel sensor with Exmor R technology. The same Zeiss lens as the RX100. But there are plenty of other changes: new tilt screen, longer battery life, ISO 100, Built-in Wifi, 24p recording and Hot Shoe.
Sony i1 (not sure it comes tomorrow): Android smartphone with Sony G lens and 1/2.3 inch sensor.
By the way, let us know…
