(SR2) A Sony camera roadmap for 2012-2013?


Our Chinese readers shared a link to a XITEK post from a mysterious source. Our Chinese readers said he is a good source but I have no records about him so please take everything with a grain of salt. I repeat this is not a rumor from MY trusted sources!

Here is the camera roadmap from Sony according to the Chinese source:

a600, 1830 megapixel, 2012 (March) -> The [shoplink 5509]A580 successor[/shoplink] a950 (a1), 36 million pixels, 2013 (February) -> The [shoplink 3032]A900 successor[/shoplink]

a37, 16 million pixels, 2012 (March) -> The [shoplink 7419]A580 successor[/shoplink] a57, 16 million pixels, 2012 (May) -> The [shoplink 3617]A580 successor[/shoplink] a99, 24 million pixels, 2012 (September)

NEX-F3 2012 (March) -> The [shoplink 3000]NEX-C3 successor[/shoplink] NEX-5G, 18.3 million pixels, 2012 (September) -> The [shoplink 8452]NEX-5n successor[/shoplink] Fullframe NEX in late 2013.

I would be really (positively) surprised if Sony would launch an optical viewfinder DSLR. I hope it’s true but I am very very sceptical! But just for fun, let’s do a poll to let Sony know what of the “rumored” cameras you would like to see for real:

Will you preorder the new Tamron FE lens?
