(SR4) Next Sony press event within 3-4 weeks: New E-mount lenses coming?

Share

We just got whispers about the next Sony press event that will happen within the next 3-4 weeks. The only 80% reliable rumor we got is that Sony will finally announce new E-mount lenses. 99% reliable is the rumor saying that we will NOT(!) get a new A7sIII any time soon.

Sony will have double major event in late February:

1) WPPI
Starts on February 25. This show is usually used by Sony to announce new products. I give it an 90% chance we will get new products

2) CP+
Starts on February 28. Pretty sure the products announced at WPPI will be shown at CP+ too

And now to SR4-SR5 rumors of what to expect on those events:

SR5 (90% chance this is correct): NOOOOOO A7sIII on the events mentioned above
SR4 (70% chance this could be correct): New 135mm f/1.8 GM (we published the patent for this lens two weeks ago).
SR4 (70% chance this could be correct): New APS-C E-mount lens (no specs yet)
SR3 (50% chance the info is correct): New High End APS-C camera with EVF in the middle and A7-A9 styled body

More rumors:
– Possible surprise might be new RX1r. But I got nothing on these yet.
– I got info about a new 35mm f/1.8 G lens but I got no idea about the timing of this lens launch.
– 500 and 600mm tele GM lenses are on the roadmap and we foun patents of those lenses too.
– Tamron should launch a 70-200mm FE alike lens, Sigma should launch new lenses too.

Note: Sony has yet not registered any new camera in Asian agencies. Still, last year the A7III cameras was registered in Asian agencies 1 day before the announcement at the WPPI show.
