New Rumors recap: A7000, A7sIII, new lenses…

Time for a recap before we post some new rumors:

Sony A7000:
One source heard the camera might be announced before Christmas. But so far I got no confirmation from other sources and no new Sony camera has yet been registered in Asia neither.
The little we know about this camera is that it has an EVF in the center and that it’s going to be a sort of mini-A9. Likely specs: 4k60p, 5.6 milion dot EVF and 20fps. Sony officially confirmed that developing professional APS-C camera is a must.

Sony A7sIII:
As told by Sony this camera will arrive in 2019. For sure it has 4k60p, 4:2:2 10bit (external), 5.6 milion dot EVF, new stacked sensor. Sony also said it will have some “unexpected” features. Unclear what they could be.

Sony FE lenses:
135mm f/1.8 likely to be announced along the A7000 or in early 2019.
New APS-C E-mount lens will be announced along the A7000.
Sony patented a new 500mm and 600mm f/4.0 FE lens. One of them could be announced in 2019.
Sony 200-600mm FE is also on the roadmap.

Tamron FE:
100-400mm 5-6.3 and 70-200mm f/2.8 FE could be announced in 2019.

Sigma FE:
Sigma will announce the first FF lenses exclusively designed for mirrorless in 2019.

This is the new 7Artisans 60mm f/2.8 macro APS-C E-mount lens

An anonymous source sent us this first image of the new 7Artisans 60mm f/2.8 macro APS-C E-mount lens. There is no info on the pricing and availability date yet.

Just recently 7Artisans launched the 35mm f/1.2 lens which is now in Stock at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon FR, Amazon UK, Amazon IT, Amazon ES.

Note: The description above contains an erorr when describing the Lens construction. This is a screenshot from a beta page. So It is still under construction and mistakes will be fixed.

(SR3) First rumors about a new Tamron 100-400/5-6.3 FE lens coming in 2019

The current Sony 100-400 GM vs the Tamron 100-400mm EF lens (CameraSize).

A source told me this:

I got some info that Tamron should release native 100-400/5-6.3 mid next year.

Would be nice to get a cheaper alternative of the Sony 100-400mm GM lens!

This patent shows the first images of the new Sony Drone camera!

Well I just found a brand newly published Sony patent describing a foldable drone camera. And it’s quite innovative as you will see:

The image below shows you the Drone folded:

You then detach the cover part which is actually a full touchscreen remote device!

The touchscreen device is used to fly the drone:

And obviously you can use the screen to zoom in and zoom out on the subject:

The camera also has the Sony famous “Eye-AF” function we all know from Sony Alpha cameras:

There is also a variation of the patent with a bigger drone:


There are no specs of any kind and no info about the Image Quality. But to me it makes a lot of sense for Sony to do this. They have the sensor technology, the autofocus technology and lens technology from the Alpha series. And why not use an E-mount on the drone similar to the DJI Zenmuse? That would be nice :)

(SR4) UPDATED: High End APS-C camera should be announced before Christmas time?

One trusted source gave us a posisble timeline of the next Sony announcement. He heard the new Sony High End APS-C camera will be announced within weeks. It’s unclear yet if that means it’s coming at PhotoPlus next week or if it will be announced sometimes in November. UPDATE: Seems like the source confused an official announcement with a in house Sony demonstration prio to the announcement. The camera will be released in every early 2019!

The following info is coming via reliable sources:

  • This is not an A6500 successor
  • This is a new kind of APS-C camera
  • The EVF is in the center
  • It’s a sort of “mini-A9”
  • It matches and in some aspects (like AF and IBIS) exceed the Fuji X-T3 performance
  • It has 20fps

Stay tuned folks and join the A6500-A7000 facebook group!

Still no 100% confirmation about a possible product announcement coming any time soon…

While I am confident the High End APS-C camera rumor is correct I still got no reliable confirmation about the possible announcement day. All I know is that this is the next camera Sony is likely to announce.

I only got anonymous tips and that means there is a statistically very high chance they are wrong. I am only posting them for your pleasure :)

Source 1.

Tomorrow (October 16th), Sony announces the FE 200-600mm f/5-6.3 G lens. Relatively light, priced 1499$. Note that it belongs in the G series, not GM. Sony also announces the development of 500mm f/4 and 600mm f/4 lenses. No other announcements for now.

Source 2:

New sony aps-c in the next few days:
– new pregius CMOS sensor
– new design with middle EVF
– 10bit 4k 30fps
– 8bit 4k 60fps
– internal ND filter

I ask people who are “serious” sources to please use some kind of nickname so that I can recognize them when they send me future rumors and I can ranke them properly. Thanks!
