Sony vs Canon: After the 8K battle we might get the 100MP sensor battle in 2022!

The Canon vs Sony 8K battle has ended with the launch of the Sony A1. So what’s coming next? It’s rumored that both companies might race to be the first to offer a 100+ Megapixel Full Frame camera in 2022. Last year I shared the specs of this new Sony 102MP FF sensor with 6K video capability. So I guess this sensor (or a variation) could be used inside the future A7rV. I hope it has the same new sensor tech of the A1….which means very fast readout, same high resolution EVF and why not….the same fully articulating screen of the A9II.

I am actually an owner and big fan of the entire A7r series. I can’t wait to buy the new version and you?

Would you buy the 102 Megapixel A7rV camera?

RUMOR: Is this the new Sony 14mm f/1.8 GM lens?

Three months ago I told you Sony might launch a new 16mm f/1.8 lens in 2021. One month ago the same source told me that Sony actually decided to make it a bit wider: 14mm f/1.8. And today I might got the firs evidence that indeed we will get a new 14mm f/1.8 lens. Another source sent me two images. The on on top shows the aperture ring of this lens. He also sent me an image sample I will not share now. But the EXIF shows this:

I have no info yet about when this lens will be announced.

P:S.: At the moment we have a 14mm f/1.8 FE lens form Sigma. But it’s an enormous lens :)

LAOWA 33mm f/0.95 E-mount lens will be released Late April

Sony announcement will happen soon…stay tuned!

It’s very likely Sony will announce the new lenses today sometimes around 14:00 London time. So please stay tuned on SAR!

P.S.: I wonder if those lenses will sell well or not. I actually do like the idea to have those compact lenses for A7c owners…makes sense to me if you wanna travel really light!

UPDATE: Apparently the price of the lenses will be 700€. And only the 24 and the 50 will have ED glass, not the 40mm.
