Trusted sources confirmed that Sony has scheduled one more E-mount product announcement this year. The timeframe for the announcement is October/November. As usual the exact date is hush hush.
But we can be confident the rumor has an extremely high chance to turn out to be true! This is the very same kind of trusted sources who just recently leaked the to us the 18-100mm E-mount image, said the A99II was ready to be announced and also shared the exact A99II specs.
The sources did yet not share WHAT will be announced by Sony (they only told me it’s definitely “E-mount”).
From other trusted sources we know that Sony has developed a new High End E-mount camera placed above the current A7 series. But I have no confirmation yet if that’s the camera they will announced in October/November. Still, the specs we know about that camera are from one of the highly trusted sources:
“The next generation flagship mirrorless camera from Sony will be a giant leap. It will drop a huge bomb in the imaging industry. It will not be A7III or A7RIII. It will be a new model above A7 series. I would say A9 (let’s name it as the new model). So the new A9 will have [shoplink 46602 ebay]dual XQD card slot[/shoplink], no CFast version, only XQD. A9 can do UNLIMITED RAW burst, UNLIMITED. The camera wont pause for buffering. The size will be bigger than [shoplink 46453 ebay]A7RII[/shoplink], but smaller than conventional DSLR, such as [shoplink 46766 ebay]5D3[/shoplink].”
But I repeat, I am sure there is an “E-mount” announcement in October/November but I am not sure if this will be for the new High End Camera (A9 or A8 or whatever) or a new A5300 or A7m3…
