At the moment I believe those “leaked” images may be showing a JOKE being prepared by Sony for April 1st!
They do NOT come from my trusted sources but from a new source. The images he shared were actually from a “alleged” Sony presentation and show much more than I am posting here. For privacy reasons I did crop the images and upsize the resolution with Topaz AI, to show the camera only.
So please again, don’t count me accountable for this leak. At the moment I believe this might be a real leak…of an April fools day preparation from Sony :)
The new Sony A7LV:
With that warning in mind let’s move on to the images: They do show the new A7LV which is basically the A7rV made for left-handers. Now, IF THIS is real this would be the first ever digital camera made for left-handers.
But my bet is that this is a Sony Aprils fools day joke!
A trusted spruce confirmed that Sigma will announce the 17mm f/4, 50mm f/2 and 23mm f/1.4 within the next couple of weeks. After those three lenses I expect Sigma to focus on more unique “one of a kind lenses” (my article about this here). There will be also a different version of the classic 70-20mm f/2.8 lens (my article about this here).
Here are the lens specs:
17mm F4 DG DN | Contemporary (Full Frame)
Lens construction: 9 elements in 8 groups
Shortest shooting distance: 12cm
Maximum magnification: 1:3.6
Filter diameter: 55mm
Size: φ64.0mm x 48.8mm (50.8mm for E mount version)
A trusted source told me the specs of the new ZV-E1 camera but he said the camera name was “ZV-E”. But after posting my article another source said the camera name is “ZV-E1”. So maybe the first source only made a typing error and forgot to add the “1”. Just so you know that I am now a bit uncertain about the name yet “Sony ZV-E1” or “Sony ZV-E“?
The Sony ZV-E1 body is a mix between the FX3 and A7c.
The autofocus is from the Sony A7rV
4k120 will NOT be launch at first, will come with firmware update after the summer
I hope to get soon more details about this camera but also about the next Sony High End APS-C model!
