A chinese reader just noticed that Sony registered a new camera code “WW541200” at http://miit.gov.cn/. This means we now have three codes: WW541200 (no info on original registration country) WW940439 (Original registration in China) WW940439 (registered a year ago with no info on original registration country) It’s important to note that cameras registered first in […] The post Sony registered another new camera with the code “WW541200” appeared first on sonyalpharumors.

Sony will have a major press event in New York City on October 25 at 10am local time. I probably will be able to embed the video live stream here on SAR. As usual it’s impossible to be 100% sure of what could be announced.
The NABshow did open today. The Sony teased “exciting new camera“ is actually the new HXC-FB80 camcorder and not a new A7sIII we were hoping to see. All I can give you as new information is that today more sources confirmed there is another Sony press event before the start of the Photoplus show on […] The post Confirmed Sony press event at Photoplus (Sony registered two new camera codes) appeared first on sonyalpharumors.
The one source who correctly told me about the new RX camera announcement on Sept 12 (rumor here) just confirmed once more the new A7s is coming “soon”. I know the word “soon” is not helping us much but this is what he told me.
Yesterday I reported two news: 1) Sony teased the launch of an “exciting new camera” for the NABshow starting on October 18. 2) Sony will have a second press event (with product announcement?) at PhotoPlus next week (October 24 or 25).
(SR5) Sony official invitation for “an exciting new camera”….but don’t get too excited, it might be camcorder only

The “unofficial talk” on the Digital Splash show: Tamron ceased A-mount lens development and will make E-mount lenses only?

On October 18 (+1 or -1 day) Sony will announce a new camera. Of that I am 1000% sure. And the chances are good that this might be the new A7sIII. All we know from a reliable source is that it has the same A9 PDAF.
Just a rendering of the possible A9s (but it could be named A7sIII) I got some more details about the next Sony announcement coming next week on October 18 (+/- 1 day). The chances are increasing that we will get a new A7sIII (or A9s).
It’s always terribly hard with Sony to know exactly what’s going to be announced. But that little I can tell you for sure: We will get one more announcement within the next 4-6 weeks.
Both Nikon (rumor here) and Canon (rumor here) are finally going to compete against Sony in the Full Frame mirrorless segment. Both companies should launch their new FF system cameras in 2018 (probably at Photokina in September).

This info is coming via a trusted source: Sony will soon launch major firmware update with the fix for “star eater” issue. Unfortunately there is a risk that first a7 series will not receive it at first (maybe never?).
As reported by Nokishita there is still one Sony camera that has to be announced very soon. Its code is “WW940439”.

We still find it somewhat amazing that no one has yet challenged Sony in the full frame mirrorless market. It is to the point now that any serious contender to the FE system will need to be pretty great right out of the gate, as Sony has had many years not to perfect and work the kinks out of their system.
