(SR5) Sony will announce a new “Sony A6400”: It has a classic A6xxx series design with selfie screen!
Image on top shows the current Sony A5100 Two sources now confirmed something that really sounds odd but I am sure it’s true: Sony’s new camera will be named “Sony A6400“. This is what one of my sources told me: 4K Video and target for bloggers.

I am getting some more confirmation that indeed Sony has organized a major Journalists and Blogger gathering for next week. This is by far no 100% reliable proof that there might be a product announcement.
Well this is an exciting news: I just spotted these newly published Sony patents describing the optical design of two new fast lenses: 135mm f/1. 8 FE 100mm f/1. 4 FE Of course a patent is never a guarantee that Sony will bring those lenses into mass production.
Sony’s competition isn’t sleeping and there are quite some news to report: Sharp: This is a surprise. Sharp is the first company announcing an 8K mirrorless system camera. It has a MFT mount and full specs will be unveiled at NAB show in April.
Tony Northrup shared his 2019 predictions. While the A7000, A7sIII and A9sII predictions sound quite reasonable Tony added an unexpected bomb: He believes Sony will make a super fast autofocus lens.
According to latest info posted on L-rumors.com in late January we should finally get full specs and pricing info about the next direct Sony competition: The Panasonic S1 and S1R cameras! The one stand out feature of these cameras will be 4k60p video recording which is missing on all current Sony FF cameras: Sony A7sIII […] The post Competition rumor: Panasonic S1-S1R camera might be launched in late January appeared first on sonyalpharumors.
We are getting closer to two major Sony events: Event ONE: Sony will have an official press conference and product announcement day on January 7 at 5pm Las Vegas time. Usually Sony doesn’t announce new E-mount gear at CES.
Sony is ready to launch a bunch of new 8K sensors and a new 8K codec in 2019. This post sums up all the many info we leaked the past weeks: New XEVC 8K codec (article and detailed images here): 8k at 24fps, 12 bit and 240Mbps peak bitrate.
(SR5) Here is the first video shot with the new (Yongnou?) 50mm f/1.0 Full Frame autofocus E-mount lens!
One of my sources just sent me this video of the new 50mm f/1. 0 Full Frame autofocus E-mount lens! This lens is rumored to be made by Yongnou but this has yet to be confirmed. They already make AF lenses for Canon and Nikon (they are on sale here on Amazon US, Amazon DE).
Other rumor sites keep deliberately posting specs and images they found on this Weibo page. That page has a history for posting fakes and nevertheless the other rumor sites post info from the site as “rumor”.
The fake A5500 inmages There are other rumor sites that keep reposting FAKE rumors they found on a specific Weibo site. First they reposted a fake rumor about an A7sIII announcement in January which is 100% NOT going to happen.
Our Asian source sent us the info about two new APS-C sensors. The first (IMX510) is a High End sensor and the second (IMX571) and Entry Level sensor: APS-C Exmor RS sensor IMX510: Effective pixel 32MP (3:2 APS-C) Total Pixel 40MP 3.
A reliable Asian Source sent me this image showing the f/1. 1 aperture of a new 50mm f/1. 1 FE autofocus lens that will be announced soon. It is made by a Chinese manufacturer. I am yet not 100% sure about the brand but it’s rumored that this might be made by Yongnuo.
Image on top shows A7000 mockup made by one of our readers At last we got some new SR5 ranked info: A couple of journalists told me they got invited to a Sony event in mid January. They haven’t been told if there will be new products but usually at such major Journalists gatherings Sony […] The post (SR5) There is a new major Sony press event in mid January! appeared first on sonyalpharumors.
Two Sources sent me this graph. As a reminder: The IMX251 and IMX309 are existing sensors. The yet to be announced sensors are: IMX435 is a new 36Mp 8K sensor (article here) IMX 551 is a new 60MP 8k sensor (article here) IMX455 is a stripped down version of the IMX551 (article here).
We got two sources saying that the new Voigtlander 50mm f/1. 2 FE lens should start to ship on EU and US market in January. Price is expected to be about the same of the current M-mount version. The post (SR4) Voigtlander 50mm f/1.
(SR5) Sony is finalising its new H.265 based professional codec – XEVC 8K. Is it coming on the A7sIII?
The reliable Sony sensor source also sent me this new info that could be for interest for future Sony A7sIII owners: Got some new info, a break from all the sensor talk :-) So Sony is finalising its new H.
Our highly reliable Sony sensor informant told us this: Just got word of a new 72MP FF global shutter sensor from Sony, 3. 45um pixel architecture (FF version of IMX342). Of course it’s more geared towards industrial use with mediocre image quality.
Like I told you before the CES show isn’t usually used by Sony to announce new E-mount products. That said Be Alpha is holding a special Sony event and their invitation says: There will be photo ops, food, lots of fun, and some surprises.
Here is an extended recap of rumored E-mount gear: Sony A7000. Sony officially confirmed that a high end APS-C camera is in the works. And recently Sony registered a new mirrorless camera in Asia which I believe is the new APS-C camera (and not the A7sIII).
Tamron 28-75mm FE lens at BHphoto, Amazon, BuyDig, FocusCamera, Adorama, Amazon DE and WexUK. We now got this: Tamron is in the process of making a 70-200mm or similar(maybe deviate slight like their 28-75mm….
(SR5) UPDATED: you cannot use the full potential of Sony’s new 60, 54 and 36MP FF 8K sensors without the proprietary SLVS-EC interface
The past week I shared the specs of three new Sony 8K sensors. All these will be available for third-party companies too. But there is one very important aspect we learned now from our sources: UPDATED: The full sensor power can only be used if the companies buy the proprietary Sony SLVS-EC interface too.
(SR5) Another new Sony sensor: IMX455, a stripped down version of the 60MP IMX551 available off-the-shelf.
So a new sensor (variant) just surfaced, IMX455, a stripped down version of the 60MP IMX551 available off-the-shelf.

I got some more screenshots unveiling tidbits about the new Sony 60Mp 8K Full Frame sensors: What’s interesting is that it has 64 native ISO. This is a hell of sensor! But keep in mind that usually cameras do not use the full potential of the sesnor because of processing hardware limits and overheating issues.
10 days ago I leaked the info about the new 60MP and 36MP with 16bit and 8K recording. Some still didn’t trust my SR5 rumor but today I am happy to share the full spec sheet of the new 36MP sensor.
(SR4) Also a 54MP FF variation of the 4um architecture used in A6500 is said to be announced in the near future
Also a 54MP FF variation of the 4um architecture used in A6500 is said to be announced in the near future. This is the info I got from a source: Got word on a new Sony FF sensor, Exmor R, 54MP, 4um photosite, essentially a full frame version of A6500 sensor.
Competiton rumors: Panasonic S1R prices above the Sony A7rIII. New Canon High-rez camera and Nikon f/0,65 lens
We got some interesting rumors from the direct Sony competition: Panasonic: Sankei believes Panasonic S1R price is above $4,000+ (MirrorlessRumors). This is considerably more expensive than the A7rIII.
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.
(SR5) Updated: These are the next two new Sony Full Frame 16bit sensors (also for third party manufacturers)
– This is from a source that was 100% correct with the rumors he shared in the past. According to him Sony will soon announce these two new Full Frame sensors: Sensor 1: 60MP 16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8), 4.
At last folks! Today Sony registered a new camera code in Asia. According to Nokishita the code “WW715296” is for a mirrorless system camera! We know from our sources the High End APS-C cameras is the next camera that will be announced by Sony.
I got this image last week but I didn’t post it because I know with 100% certainty this is fake. But some sites posted exactly theses specs and readers asked my opinion on this. So here is my opinion: It is fake as you can see from the image showing the FF sensor inside the […] The post A fake A6700 spec list is going around the web appeared first on sonyalpharumors.

Time for a recap before we post some new rumors: Sony A7000: One source heard the camera might be announced before Christmas. But so far I got no confirmation from other sources and no new Sony camera has yet been registered in Asia neither.
An anonymous source sent us this first image of the new 7Artisans 60mm f/2. 8 macro APS-C E-mount lens. There is no info on the pricing and availability date yet. Just recently 7Artisans launched the 35mm f/1.
The current Sony 100-400 GM vs the Tamron 100-400mm EF lens (CameraSize). A source told me this: I got some info that Tamron should release native 100-400/5-6. 3 mid next year. Would be nice to get a cheaper alternative of the Sony 100-400mm GM lens! The post (SR3) First rumors about a new Tamron 100-400/5-6.
Well I just found a brand newly published Sony patent describing a foldable drone camera. And it’s quite innovative as you will see: The image below shows you the Drone folded: You then detach the cover part which is actually a full touchscreen remote device! The touchscreen device is used to fly the drone: And […] The post This patent shows the first images of the new Sony Drone camera! appeared first on sonyalpharumors.
One trusted source gave us a posisble timeline of the next Sony announcement. He heard the new Sony High End APS-C camera will be announced within weeks. It’s unclear yet if that means it’s coming at PhotoPlus next week or if it will be announced sometimes in November.
While I am confident the High End APS-C camera rumor is correct I still got no reliable confirmation about the possible announcement day. All I know is that this is the next camera Sony is likely to announce.
Zeiss claims the Otus line is the best lenses you can have on the market. And we will soon get a new addition with this new 100mm f/1. 4. The first images have been leaked via Nokishita. There is yet no info about pricing and official release date.
Nokishita made a recap of all cameras that have been registered in Asia and that yet have to be announced. There are two Sony compact camera models named WX700 and WX800. We noticed that latel Sony registered Higher End cameras only few days before the launch.
From trusted sources we know there is still one major announcement coming soon. Today one good source told me that he got unofficial rumors about a Sony evtn on or around October 16. Still, I rate this rumor with 50% reliability for now because I will need further confirmation.
UPDATE: Trusted sources told us this screenshot showing the A7000 specs and that’s going around the web is FAKE. – From trusted sources we know a new High End APS-C camera and new lenses (plural!) will be announced soon.
