Well, this is really a surprise. I have been told by many trusted sources that Sony decided the very last days to split the announcement of the new cameras! The A77M2 is coming in a couple of hours (10am London time) while the RX100M3 will be announced later (likely May 15). UPDATE: Also the A7s pricing announcement has been delayed!

Add to this that Sony also decided to make different announcements in different regions. As you can see from the Hong Kong flyer (image below) the A77MII will be announced on may 7 in Hong Kong. A bit of a mess I know :)
