I really don’t speak japanese so I have to rely on google translation tool to read the following document: https://www.impressjapan.jp/pr/monitor/1112_dcm/271201_free.pdf. That magazine contains an interview with Sony. And here is what we can expect in 2012:
1) Smaller NEX lenses: Sony confirms what we have reported here on SonyAlphaRumors some time ago. There is a new NEX lens roadmap and it includes smaller lenses (yeah, pancakes!).
2) 100 Megapixel sensor: Sony can do a 100 Megapixel sensor. Now I guess this doesn’t necessary mean there will be a camera with such a sensor. It will be more a “look at my muscles Canon” statement :)
3) electronic shutter: This is a big news and very important technology. I bet this is coming for real at Photokina 2012!
Sony also confirms that the next FF cameras will be SLT (electronic viewfinder). Japanese readers may help me to get a full translation of the text? Thanks!
