Time to make a serious recap of the reliable rumors and news we got so far: Note: The recently registered camera code “WW213188” is for the new Sony RX100Va. This means no new Sony camera is expected to be announced within 2-5 weeks.
This rumor is coming via two very old and long time rumor source. These kind of sources do write me anonymously only 2-3 times a year. They were correct 95% of the time with only one small miss in their long record.
Tamron 28-75mm FE lens at BHphoto, Amazon, BuyDig, FocusCamera and Adorama. In Europe at Amazon DE and WexUK. We heard from a rock solid source that Tamron will release the 28-75mm FE firmware update within hours at exactly 7am London time.
We keep receiving confirmation that Sony will announce the final specs and pricing of the Sony 400mm f/2. 8 FE at 15:00-16:00 London time. A source also added this: It will be launched together with another interesting Sony topic.
This lens is listed at Bhphoto now. I got confirmation from a top source that there will be a Sony product announcement tomorrow at 15:00 London time. The source did not tell what’s going to be announced and only said this: “price and some specs are surprising.
UPDATE: A chinese source just sent me these specs sheets of a rumored new Sony CMOS sensor found on Weibo. I am not sure if they are real but it certainly looks like that. UPDATED: I edited this post and removed the note about the possibility that this might be used by the future A6700.

I got first unconfirmed rumors about a possible Sony announcement in early July. I hope trusted sources reading this can confirm or deny this soon. It would make sense if Sony would announce the full specs and pricing of the 400mm f/2.
With all the RX100VI buzz it’s time to recap the two SR5 rumors you might have missed or forgotten about: (SR5) Zeissis 40mm Bat: Zeiss is testing a new Batis 40mm f/2. 0 CF FE lens. The lens will be announced between now and Photokina.
Sony officially registered a new camera with the code “WW213188”. It usually takes 1 up to 3 months until this camera will be officially announced. The registered model has Wi-FI but no Bluetooth.
One of our trusted sources sent us this high res picture of the new Samyang 24mm f/2. 8 FE autofocus lens. And Samyang confirmed the lens will be announced tomorrow! And I am now trying to learn when Zeiss will announce the new Batis 40mm f/2.
Just a short note: I am offline for eight-ten hours as I am hiking on the Dolomites (I may post pictures on my IG channel here). But it’s possible that Samyang will announce the new 24mm f/2.
I just got this: There might be a RX100VI on June 6th but I am not 100% completely sure. I think there is a fair chance this info may be right. Also because Sony indeed registered a new camera model last month with the code “WW771132”.
Here you have the first images of the soon to be announced new Samyang 24mm f/2. 8 FE autofocus lens. I have been told weight and size aare about the same of the current 35mm f/2. 8 FE. Expect the lens to be announced this week.
Just recently Sony registered a new camera code in Asia (WW771132). I am receiving first hints about a possible Sony product announcement in a few days. All I know for sure is that it’s not for the As7III.
A couple of Tamron news: 1) The next Stock of lenses will ship out in mid June according to an updated info from BHphoto. 2) Trusted Tamron sources told us the new firmware update will be released in two weeks Tamron 28-75mm FE lens at BHphoto, Amazon, BuyDig, FocusCamera and Adorama.
The A7sIII book is still listed on Amazon Germany :) Emmanuel Pampuri posted his french interview with Mr Pisano, Sales Manager for Sony Europe.

The Chinese site ZOL already lists the new Samyang FE autofocus lens that will be announced in June/July. There is yet no price info but the new 24mm pancake should have the same size as the current 35mm f/2.
Two trusted sources confirmed this: Samyang will announce a new Autofocus Full Frame E-mount lens in June/July. I have yet no info about the focal length. But I do hope it’s a 135mm f/1. 8 FE! Links to all current Samyang/Rokinon FF E-mount AF lenses: 50mm f/1.
Sony organized some major meetings with journalists by end of May. Usually when Sony puts that kind of effort there is some related product announcement. But the chances are now increasing that we might get NOTHING at all.
Max writes: With the imminent A7s III around the corner, here are 5 features the A7s3 BETTER have! We know Sony registered a new camera code which means we should soon see a new camera. But I am uncertain if that’s going to be the A6700 or A7sIII or a new RX camera.

SAR reader Eric sent us the link to a Lithuanian Store that listed the new Sigma 105mm f/1. 4 lens for 1. 999 Euro. I don’t know if that’s really the final price. If it is I would expect the US price to be around $1,999 too (it’s listed at BHphoto now with no pricing).
Sony reps confirmed to Dave Dugdale that the Sony A7sIII will have the color science of the Venice and FS5III camcorders. This was to be expected but it’s also the first time Sony officially confirms the A7sIII is coming.
