(SR5) More Tidbits about the A77 (definitely coming in early October, NEX-7 late October)


I received a couple of mini-rumors from different sources. I summed them up and here they are:

Source_1: A77 accuracy and video performance with new the auto focus is superb. OLED display is amazing. The A77 would be around $1200-1300 US and $1500-1600 with kit lens (16-50).
Source_2: A77 will have 11 cross type AF (UPDATE: This part has been corrected…was a typo)
Source_3: A77 auto-focus is indeed insanely fast.
Source_4: A77 will have fixed problem with x/sync when sss is turn on :) they will be no limit like now 1/160 sync when sss is on.
Source_5: Just a confirmation the A77 will start shipment in early October (in Asian countries first!). NEX-7 will start shipment 2 weeks after.

Support this site: I am having a lot of fun to work on SAR. I don’t use dozens of banners and I don’t get paid by any company to do what I do. All the work you see here is made by me during my free time. If you want to help me to cover the monthly server costs there is an easy way: Click on affiliate links you see on that website like [shopcountry 3028] to buy whatever product you want (it doesn’t have to be a camera) and I will earn a small commission from it. You don’t pay any penny more on the items you buy and at the same time you support SonyAlphaRumors without me having to put 100 banners on my website. Cool or not? Thanks :)
