I still have no reliable info about when exactly Sony will announce the A99 successor. All I got are info via anonymous sources. Take them with a grain of salt:
Source 1: “New pro A-mount camera is coming in 2015. This should be the A99 replacement.”
Source 2: “I went to the Sony presentation in Toronto, ON on the 26th and actually had a chance to speak to multiple persons who work at Sony Canada, specifically in the imaging division. They informed me that a full frame camera that almost mirror’s the A77II capabilities only using a full frame sensor will be filling the product line between the A77II, and the A99 replacement. I didn’t get much more out of them than that. ”
Source 3: “AF system has been redesigned and main priorities were AF + PDAF, raw file compression algorithm, S-Log implementation and data backend throughput rather than resolution.”
