(SR4) Now 75% chance ot get the A7III on Monday. And some hints about two new FE primes…

Tonight we received an “indirect” evidence that Sony is indeed going to launch the new A7III. The chances to get the A7III on Monday afternoon at the Las Vegas presentation are now at 75%.

One more thing:
A source also heard about two fast primes in development. But he got no confirmation if Sony will actually talk about those on Monday. One of the primes would be the 135mm FE.

Increasing chance that we might get a new Sony A7III on February 26


A7III rendering created by Valley Films

I am still not 100% sure about WHAT will be announced: But the chances are increasing that we will get a new A7III camera on February 26. This because we learned that many people got invited at big events in Las Vegas, London and Asia. I doubt they would do that for a new A6000mkII or A5300.
And you better hope that these A7III specs shared by a new source are correct. Because if he is than I can share the correct A7sIII specs too (Spoiler: The camera is not going to be unveiled at the CP+).

So let’s recap what we know so far:

99% reliable rumors:
– Sony announcement on February 26 (Las Vegas time)
– New “entry-mid” level camera will be announced

60% reliable rumor:
The “entry-mid” level camera is the A7III

35% reliable rumor on the A7III  specs:
24 mpx sensor.
7 fps.
425 contrast points.
167 phase detection.
joystick.
Z batterie.
touch screen.
4k recording 24 .25 and 30 fps.
1080p 24.25.30 and 60.fps.
1899 us dollars.

(SR2) Low ranked rumors about a sort of “Sony A6000mk2” camera coming on February 26

We know Sony will announce a new “entry-mid-level” Alpha camera on February 26. But so far I have no 100% reliable info about what this camera is about. But I think we can narrow down the choices to two cameras: The A7III and a new APS-C E-mount camera. It will be onw of the two.

I will now report four “unconfirmed” rumors (which means non-reliable yet):

Source 1:

“A7mk3 at CP+ 24MP sensor”

Source 2:

“There will be a new aps-c type camera from sony.
it won’t be a direct successor to the a6500 model.I will be in a lower series using the same sensor but less features…”

Source 3:

“there are reasons to claim new camera will be APS-C budget E-Mount camera. Something like a5500 or a6000 mk2. I give it 70% and 30% for a7 mk3.”

Source 4:

Sony will not announce a new a7 camera, just a new small entry level compact camera with special new Facebook, IG and Twitter dedicated buttons for instant social media uploads. I think the camera will sell very well with the teenage generation.

Let’s see whom of the three source is going to land on the hall of fame….or flame :)

(SR5) Leaked: This is the new Sony HVL-F60RM flash!

You remember how trusted sources that Sony would announce two things on Feb 26: The “entry-mid” level Alpha and a new Flash. Well the sources were spot on so far as this image of the new Sony HVL-F60RM flash just got leaked via Nokishita. It’s a radio-controlled version of the Sony HVL-F60M (we posted a rumor about it back in October).

Now the question remains: What’s the new entry-level camera? Place your bet here:

I think it is the...

All the rumors so far: Sony announcement, Sigma ART FE, Tamron E-mount, Tokina FE, Samyang and Laowa…

This Sigma roadmap shows the 50mm f/1.4 for APS-C E-mount

We posted many rumors the past days so let’s make a short recap:

1) Sony
Trusted:
From trusted sources we know Sony will announce new “entry-mid” level Alpha camera and a new Flash on February 26 at the WPPI in Las Vegas.
Unconfirmed: We definitely will NOT get a new A7sIII. But it’s unconfirmed yet what that “entry-mid” level camera might be: A new A7III, A5300, A6500 or A77m3???

2) Sigma
Sigma should show their first ART FE lenses at the CP+ show. It’s unclear if one or some of the lenses will hit the market right away or if this will be more of a roadmap/development announcement.
There might be also a new 50mm f/1.4 lens for APS-C E-mount cameras.

3) Tamron
Tamron will announce a new 28-75mm f/2.8 FE lens.

4) Venus Optics
the Laowa 9mm f/2.8 will for APS-C E-mount will be announced in late March for $499.

5) Tokina
Tokina might finally show their two wide and super wide FE lens primes

6) Samyang
Samyang is going to announce a new portrait FE lens as next. But announcement date is yet unconfirmed. Could be ay Cp+ or shortly after that.

Curious note: If the rumored A7III specs will turn out to be true I will have some great rumor for the A7sIII too from the very same source…fingers crossed his A7III specs are correct!
