(SR4) The big rumor day summary: A7II and 70-300mm to be announced within days! A9 coming early 2015.


Fake A9r rendering at SonyAlphaForum (post your dream A9 renderings there!).

This was a very busy rumor day and at moments even very confusing :) Therefore this post to clear out things and spread the good news:

1) SR4: Sony will announce the new A7II and the new 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G SSM II A-mount lens within the next few days already!

2) SR4: The Sony A7II succeeds the A7 camera (uses the same 24MP sensor) but comes with an impressive 5 axis stabilization taken with the Olympus E-M1. Compared to the current A7 the A7II thicker (due the different grip). Weights 100 gram more. The camera should be announced within the next days already!

3) SR5: The A7II is not the “PRO” FE camera. The PRO FE camera is likely to be named A9 and will be announced and hit the stores the first half of 2015. And it has a new generation sensor!

In short Sony appears to have managed to make the miracle to add 5 axis stabilization on the Full Frame E-mount cameras. And this is really a big news! Stay tuned on SAR as I think A7II pictures will be (hopefully) leaked soon. And here are the A7II and 70-300mm info via Digicameinfo:
