(SR5) First Sigma FE lens launch postponed to February. Good news is that full range of primes is in development!


Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 and the Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 via Camerasize

The very same source whom shared the 100% correct ART prime lens rumor roadmap (read here) and leaked to us images too (read here) shared some new info about the future Sigma FE lens line. The bad news is that the launch of the first lens got delayed from end 2017 to very early 2018:

I got some sigma news this morning. The line up should arrive in February next year. The lenses should be the same focal length as the actual line up. 14mm, 24mm, 35mm, 85mm and 135mm. A new 70-200 is arriving in October… but no Sony mount

This is a very solid source so I am 99% certain he is right on this. The good news is that Sigma plans to release al very long list of new primes. I am loving this! The first one will be the 35mm f/1.4 as we “rumored” many months ago.

P.S.: Another Bad news: The new 70-200mm lens will not be available for A-mount :(

Again rumors about the “Surprising” Sony camera

You surely remember the let down the day of the Sony RX10mV announcement. We had big expectation also because one of our trusted sources said there would be “something surprising”. Well, it seems he was wrong on the timing but he may be still right on the vague “content” of this rumor.

First that source said his info is 100% confirmed and there is a surprising and yet “non rumored” Sony camera. He assumed it would be announced along the RX10mIV because he got details about this camera…so he expected to see it announced soon.

And now a second trusted source that is actually close to a direct competitor told me this: The competition got wind of this new kind of camera and he confirmed to me that indeed this seems to be ready for an announcement.

I hope both sources can share some insights soon as we really have no clue what kind of camera we should expect (if those rumors are correct).

While I think both sources are trustworthy I still invite SAR to fly low on this. What may be surprising for them may not be really exciting (or too expensive) for us. So let’s keep expectations low for now until we hopefully get some real details.

To sum up: There seems to be some camera coming that is not part of the usual range (A7x or A6xxx and so on). And it may be the first of a new line?

(SR3) Sony will soon launch major firmware update with the fix for “star eater” issue

This info is coming via a trusted source:

Sony will soon launch major firmware update with the fix for “star eater” issue. Unfortunately there is a risk that first a7 series will not receive it at first (maybe never?). That’s second hand rumor.

Sony “WW940439” code camera to be announced soon (probably A7III)

As reported by Nokishita there is still one Sony camera that has to be announced very soon. Its code is “WW940439”. The best bet is that this might be the A7III with the following specs shared by trusted sources:

New 24 MP sensor
First source said it hs “Same Sony A9 autofocus system without the 20fps feature”. Second source said it’s “improved AF system”. Hope they mean both the same thing.
Touch Screen
Joystick control
4K30p recording

Unconfirmed additional specs:

6fps with mechanical shutter
ISO up to 51200 (expanded to ISO 204800)
693 phase detection AF (which is same as a9!!)
minimum focus sensitivity is EV-3

I also expect new FE lenses like the rumored 135mm and 400mm FE to be announced next.

We have our own Facebook camera groups and pages you can join to discuss the upcoming new cameras in detail:
Sony A9 group and Sony A9 page.

Sony folk at IBC unofficially do confirm S-LOG 8 bit is coming to the Sony A9

Michel Satoer shared an “unofficial” info on our Sony A9 facebook group. S-LOG 8 bit should be added via future firmware added on the A9. I am very confident this will happen soon.
