It doesn’t happen very often that I post SR5 ranked rumors on such long term Sony roadmaps. But I am now 99% sure of it! Sony completely changed the Full Frame roadmap! This means that also the rumored A1X SLT FF prototype camera with 36 MPX and no AA filter is not going to be released as it is. There will be..drastic(!) changes. Sony is now developing a unique and completely innovative FF range. The goal is to differentiate Sony FF cameras further from Canon and Nikon FF products. The next bunch of FF cameras is now being developed and Sony still hasn’t approved the final production of anyone of these cameras.
I am working on the details of the roadmap but as I told you there is no 100% approved camera yet. That’s why it’s quite difficult to give you reliable specs! All I am sure of is that, the next FF cameras will be quite different from a camera like the new [shoplink 14165]Sony A99[/shoplink].
UPDATE: As usual some people do misinterpret rumors that’s why I wanna say it clear and loudly: Both E and A mount systems will be kept well alive and improved!!! What’s changing is some technology used for the E and A mount. Actually, I think the new tech will bring even more “appeal” to both system! Exact the opposite of what some whiner wrote in the comments! Trust me, it’s a good news!
Reminder (SR = Sonyrumor):
