(SR5) Sony will announce a new E-mount mirrorless “in the first half of 2019”


Today Sony registered a new camera code which is 99% likely to become the new RX0. But Nokishita added one more info. Sony will announce a new E-mount mirrorless camera “in the first half of 2019

From the info I gathered this is highly unlikely to be the new Sony A7sIII. Top candidate so far is the new High End APS-C camera which for now we love to name “A7000”. And if you still think a professional APS-C camera is just a phantasy please don’t forget that Sony confirmed it in this Dpreview interview:

APS-C cameras for professional use must exist.

But of course nothing is confirmed. I don’t think A7III and A7rIII will be replaced soon. If it’s not the A7sIII and not the A7000 I don’t know what it could be else…

To recap what we heard so far:
SR5: Sony RX0II to be announced within the next 2-3 months
SR5: New APS-C E-mount mirrorless camera coming within June
SR4: New E-mount lens announcement in February (probably 135mm f/1.8 GM and another lens).
