Two solid source confirmed Sony will soon announce a super compact FF E-mount camera and that it will be named “Sony A7c“. The “c” obviously standing for “compact”. This camera will be the first and entry level camera of the new “c” line that will run on parallel to the current A7-A9 cameras. A third source (THANKS!) also told me this:
“pre-launch codes for bodies start CX, lenses start VX.”
So what he says is there will be a new line of cameras and new line of lenses. My guess is the “V” lenses will be very compact for this compact “Sony A7C” camera. Sony’s goal is to make a super compact FF series for vloggers and travelers. The camera having a popup EVF smaller than A7III body size and a new line of compact lenses.
