In the midst of the big Black Friday event we got some quite major news and some of you might have missed them. So here is the recap:
1) Sony A7000:
Sony officially registered a new E-mount mirrorless camera in Asia. Usually it will take up to 2 months until this camera will be officially announce. I believe this is the new A7000 or A6xxx. A New High End camera:
– it’s not an A6500 successor
– it has a new design with EVF in the center
– it’s a new High End APS-C camera
– probably 20 fps and 5.6 milion dot EVF
2) Two new Sony Full Frame sensors:
Sony will soon announce two new FF sensors that will be available for third-party companies too. There is a new 8K capable sensor too:
16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8),
The development of α7sⅢ has been postponed because of heat issue (SAR note: That’s why it’s not coming in 2018).
α7sⅢ will have stacked CMOS sensor but the sensor is different to α9’s.
α7sⅢ will be sold in 2019’s early.
4) Sony 35mm f/1.8 G
Two sources told us this lens is on Sony’s roadmap. No details about the announcement date but I guess it’s coming in 2019
