Our Japanese friends over at Digitcaminfo (Click here) said the Nex-7 and A77 will start to ship in Japan on September 16. It will ship in the rest of the world by early October (A77) and late October (NEX-7).
In the meanwhile our sources confirmed the announcement will take place on August 24 in Tokyo (Should be at around 6-7am London time). As you know you can follow the announcement on this website as we will cover you live with all first news, reviews, image samples and so on. On the same day also Nikon will announce their new stuff. My guess is the new FF cameras will be based on the “old” Sony 24 Megapixels sensor as I have heard the new Sony sensor (and camera) will be ready in early 2012 only. And Nikon will also announce a mirrorless system.
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 Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay 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 :)
