Sony Alpha Rumors (by way of Petapixel, with thanks) is predicting with a high degree of confidence a brand new full frame E-mount Sony to challenge the Nikon D810 and Canon 5D Mark III – due in February.
The bad news: this means it could cost as much as the competition (or: at least more than the current A7 family – bummer).
The good news: we just might get the no-funky-ergonomics, no 8-bit limited HDMI out, no slo-mo-missing update to the A7s that so many of us are looking for to make it our single go-to camera.
Dang! I’ve gotten caught up in a gear rumor frenzy.
I ought to know better.
Rumor: Sony Plans to Release a New ‘Pro’ Full-Frame E-Mount Camera By Mid-February
After a rather bland Photokina and PhotoPlus for Sony, it’s no surprise that they’re cooking up something really great for the photography world behind the scenes. And while we don’t have any more concrete news about the rumored medium format camera in the works, a very reliable rumor says to expect a new, pro level full-frame E-Mount within the next 3 months!
According to some of Sony Alpha Rumors ‘very best sources,’ Sony is getting ready to make a big announcement in late January or early February. And this big announcement is said to be for at least one new ‘pro’ full-frame E-mount camera with a handful of updated features and capabilities.
Specifically, SAR says that this camera will be the first model in a completely new generation of Sony full-frame cameras.
