(SR5) Both 100mm STF and 85mm f/1.8 rumors were correct: Same sources confirm the new High End E-mount camera is coming!


Three trusted sources shared the correct info about the lenses and the announcement time:

1) 100mm rumor (lens announcement period got delayed. Probably because of the production issues we reported here).
2) 85mm rumor was spot on to
3) And so the announcement time rumor.

But what matters is that all these sources also confirmed this:

  1. 16-35mm GM is real deal
  2. New Sony High End E-mount camera placed above the A7rII is coming this year too! The name of the camera is unconfirmed but I call it tentatively “A9”.

The High End camera is probably the “new camera with very fast burst rate and AF speed, not the A7 series, not on CP+” that Sony Artisan Zhang Qianli was talking about on Weibo. And it seems likely it will be announced after the CP+ show is Zhang is correct in his statement.

I am now working with all of three of them to see what I can post about the new A9 soon…Stay tuned on SAR and join the special Sony A9 group on Facebook (Click here) for more detailed coverage!
