Rumor roundup (NEX-9, A88 and A99, new Alpha Lenses)


It has been a busy week so I am going to make a sum of the latest rumors while I am preparing the launch of the new ones :)

1) No other SLT APS-C model in 2012:
Some speculated that there might be a room for an OVF APS-C model. Sorry to kill your dreams…there is no such a model!

2) Two FF SLT cameras coming within 12 months
I am 99% sure there will be a new SLT FF camera in late August/ September and another higher end model in 2013. I am not so sure about the name of the cameras, unreliable rumors for now say that one is the A88 and the other one the A99 (info not coming via my sources!).

3) New 55-300mm, new 300mm and new 50mm f/1.4 and f/1.2 Alpha lenses coming.
A Sony database leak confirmed that there will be a new 55-300mm and 300mm lens (now discontinued). Rumors floating around the web suggests two new 50mm primes will be launched.

4) A High end NEX?
This is really a wild rumor but some “voices” say that Sony is already working on an updated NEX-7 camera. Could be launched a while after the NEX-5F launch?

That’s it for now! Now let’s see what this week will bring to us!
