(SR4) Development of the new a-e hybrid bridge camera project confirmed. Release Photokina 2014.
I am getting more and more details about the new Sony roadmap. As I told you before the next camera should be the new NEX-7 successor (shipping from October). We will have new A-mount FF and APS-C cameras (mirrorless) in early 2014. And we will see the first FF-NEX compact camera in mid 2014 too.
And according to one of my best sources Sony also finally approved the new a-e hybrid bridge camera project development. This camera is scheduled for a release in late 2014 right in time for Photokina! As I told you before I have no clue yet how this thing is going to work. And the only example we have form the past is the [shoplink 10295 ebay]Zeiss Ikon Contax I, II and III (here on eBay)[/shoplink]. It had a sort of native double mount on camera.
Anyway, stay tuned, I am working very busy with my sources to grab some info about the specs off all these new cameras. One thing is sure. 2014 is going to be a hell of a year for all of us A and E-mount owners!
