(SR2) First unconfirmed rumors about a possible Sony product announcement in early July…

I got first unconfirmed rumors about a possible Sony announcement in early July. I hope trusted sources reading this can confirm or deny this soon. It would make sense if Sony would announce the full specs and pricing of the 400mm f/2.8 FE lens in July. The lens is expected to be available in September according to BHphoto.

Moreover Sony recently registered a new camera code….for the A6700?

(SR5) New Zeiss 40mm f/2.0 Batis and new Sony camera to be announced this summer

With all the RX100VI buzz it’s time to recap the two SR5 rumors you might have missed or forgotten about:

(SR5) Zeissis 40mm Bat:
Zeiss is testing a new Batis 40mm f/2.0 CF FE lens. The lens will be announced between now and Photokina. These are the lens specs:

Distagon optical design
The shortest shooting distance is 0.24 m
With focus limiter (Full / ∞ ~ 0.4 m / 0.5 m to 0.24 m)
Filter diameter is 67 mm
Batis Size close to 85mm (40mm is slightly smaller)

(SR5) Sony camera:
Sony will announce a new camera within 1-2 months. In Asia they registered a new model with code “WW213188”. We don’t know yet what it will be: A6700, A7sIII or a new compact camera?
Sony will also launch the long teased 400mm FE launch in August-September.

One more thing: Also Sigma, Samyang and other comapnies are likely to announce new lenses at Photokina in September and at the New York show in October.

(SR5) Sony will announce a new camera within 2-3 months!

Sony officially registered a new camera with the code “WW213188”. It usually takes 1 up to 3 months until this camera will be officially announced. The registered model has Wi-FI but no Bluetooth. This camera could be the A7sIII the A6700 or a new compact camera. My guess is that this is for the A6700. The A7sIII is probably going to be announced in October-November and feature the new Sony OLED EVF that goes into mass production in November.

Also keep in mind there will be another press event this summer to definitely launch the new 400mm f/2.8 FE lens.

(SR5) UPDATE: Voigtlander 110mm FE preorders will open on June 19. Price £849.00 inc. VAT.

The latest two new Voigtlander FE lenses are the 110mm and 21mm FE lenses. And Nokishita reports the preorders for the 110mm lens will open on June 19. UPDATE: Trusted sources told us the price is £849.00 inc. VAT. This is £100 more than the excellent 65mm FE lens. I am probably going to buy the 110mm FE!

Samyang 24mm f/2.8 FE will be announced tomorrow. Still no launch date for the Zeiss 40mm f/2.0.

One of our trusted sources sent us this high res picture of the new Samyang 24mm f/2.8 FE autofocus lens. And Samyang confirmed the lens will be announced tomorrow!

And I am now trying to learn when Zeiss will announce the new Batis 40mm f/2.0 CF FE lens. If you have some info please contact me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com or use the anonymous contact form on top of the right sidebar. What we know so far about this lens:

Distagon optical design
The shortest shooting distance is 0.24 m
With focus limiter (Full / ∞ ~ 0.4 m / 0.5 m to 0.24 m)
Filter diameter is 67 mm
Batis Size close to 85mm (40mm is slightly smaller)

I guess the CF stands for “Close Focus”.

Short personal note: Offline for eight hours. Samyang 24mm f/2.8 FE lens might be announced today!

Just a short note: I am offline for eight-ten hours as I am hiking on the Dolomites (I may post pictures on my IG channel here).  But it’s possible that Samyang will announce the new 24mm f/2.8 FE lens today. This is why Patrick from Fujirumors will post the Samyang news once it’s official. I kindly ask you to threat him with NO respect and give your best ever trolling comments :)

P.S:
– To all people sending me RX100VI test links. Be patient, I will post them in 10 hours ok?
– some comments awaiting moderation will get approved in 10 hours
– Again, please have a trolling fun with Patrick :)
