Difficult times for all companies because of the near production stop in China
Three weeks ago SAR told you as first that Sony would announce a fast wide angle prime lens in late February. And indeed this underwhelming rumor turned out to be true. I really was hoping to get at least the compact camera that Sony registered back in December. But nope :(
But let’s get over the disappointment and focus on what’s coming next. Here is the recap:
- Sony registered a new fixed lens camera in December. Announcement should come any time soon if Coronavirus didn’t mess up with the roadmap.
- 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens should be announced around Photokina time too.
- Both the A7IV and A7sII successor are DEFINITELY planed to be released this year. But all depends obviously on how fast China will solve the production issues (Note: Sony produces the camera in Thailand but many parts are imported from China). The A7sII successor should be on market by September 2020.
- More lenses are coming, most likely telephoto GM.
Stay tuned folks!
