We now heard from two reliable sources that Sony will definitely announce new E-mount gear “around” the CP+ show. On of the sources said there will be at least a new camera and a new handle with Bluetooth “VCT”.
I got NO confirmation yet about WHAT camera we should expect but I bet high on the new Sony A7 IV. After all the A7III was announced at the CP+ show two years ago.
I have no info on lenses yet but there is surely a good chance we might get 1-2 new lenses too. Like I reported days ago Sony plans to announce a total of SIX new E-mount lenses in 2020.
Now let’s guess the possible A7IV specs:
It safe to think the A7IV will be an evolution and not a revolution. Something like the A7rIV with a 24MP sensor. I would appreciate Sony to surprises us and at least offer us not the same A7III sensor but a completely new version of it.
For the rest I expect the A7IV to have the same EVF, same AF system and same body design of the A7rIV.
And when the A7sIII?
After a very long waiting I am now confident the A7sIII is coming at the NABshow. The only reliable rumor I got said it would have 4k120p and a vent on the back to cool down the sensor.
- 6 new E-mount lenses will be announced in 2020 (1 APS-C, some lenses are update of current lenses, many tele lenses and on new wide angle GM lens)
- 1 new camera will be announced around the CP+ show
- 1 new grip will be announced around the CP+ show
- Many more announcement expected from Sigma, Tamron, Tokina (85mm f/1.8 FE)…stay tuned on SAR for those rumors :)
