Finally I have solid confirmation about the first Sony Alpha announcement of the year! Two trusted sources confirmed we are getting new gear soon. One of the sources told me it’s going to happened in mid February. Usually Sony does announce gear on a Wednesday, if they keep this pattern than it’s likely we are having a new announcement on February 14th.
What to expect?
Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G: One of the sources confirmed that we are getting the Sony 24-50mm f/2.8 G. That’s the only product where I have 100% confirmation.
What might be announced too:
Sony A1 and A7sIII firmware update too (still to be confirmed)
Sony 16-25mm f/2.8 G: I do believe it’s likely we might get a new 16-25mm f/2.8 G too. The reason for that is that a youtuber did “leak” this info by mistake for a very short time:
So unless he truly made a “Mistake” or wanted to “fool” us than I do believe this lens is coming too.
What’s unlikely to be announced:
Sony ZV-E10II: I am sure it will be on market in Spring time but I got no evidence as of yet it will be announced in mid-February
Sony A7sIV: I got no evidence on this camera and moreover Sony did not register any new Alpha camera model in China. While this is not a 100% accurate pattern…usually Sony China does register new cameras 2-3 months ahead of their announcement.
Sony 85mm f/1.4 GMII: I got confirmation this lens will be in Stock by early summer. But no info as of yet when the actual announcement will happen.
CRAZY RUMOR: Early January a new source told me Sony would announce two new f/2.8 G zooms soon and that there would be some CRAZY WOW gear after that. So even if you don’t care about those G zooms you have to keep your fingers crossed these are coming for real in mid February. If that is going to happen expect me to share some exciting rumors soon after ;)
