I am working on the new 2014 camera and lens rumors. And as I told you last week it’s going to be an extremely exciting year with plenty of new cameras, many times more in number than we had in 2013! With all the E-mount news I posted in these days and weeks I feel obligated to post A-mount rumors as first :)
According to two anonymous sources Sony has two working A-mount prototypes cameras:
1) One Full Frame SLT A-mount cameras. It features a new 36 Megapixel sensor which is slightly different from the A7r sensor (it has no offset microlens design).
2) One APS-C SLT A-mount camera with new 24 megapixel sensor (improved over the A77 sensor!).
One trusted source also told me that Sony is well aware of the need to continue to make APS-C A-mount cameras. In short, the chances are high to see two new A-mount cameras in early 2014. Both, for FF and APS-C A-mount system. I am working to get the final specs of the cameras.
Stay tuned on SAR, because I am also working on the new APS-C and FF E-mount cameras front. I have to say I am surprised to hear how much Sony is developing rigt now. They are more “convinced” about their roadmap than ever.
