We have some exciting Sony News, Rumors, Deals and Rebates for the end of the week that you must check out!
Starting with Sony News and Rumors, we have the new Mirrorless A-Mount Cameras coming out in early 2014. A high end model and a mid-grade model will be release most likely which makes sense to me. I’m personally interested in the high end model for a possible replacement to my Canon 5d Mark II. My guess is they will have next generation hybrid sensors ranging from 36mp – 50mp. Moving on to other incredible innovation, we have news that Olympus has teamed up with Sony to help design a new image sensor ant-shake technology that will allow for 5-axis compensation! Similar to the OM-D, except the Sony’s are full frame sized sensors, and not the tiny micro 4/3rds found in the Olympus.
So, we have two new A-Mount cameras coming (full frame and aps-c) with high mega-pixel sensors (36mp-50mp), 5-axis image stabilization, Standard Hot Shoe, Wi-Fi, GPS, Large Articulating screen, Next Gen OLED Viewfinder, Dual memory card slots, and Pro grade build quality.

More Cyber-shot RX-series Rumors
Courtesy of SonyAlphaRumors we have rumors that a new RX1 is coming out, but it’s identical to the previous model except the Anti-Aliasing filter has been removed. So the images should be even sharper most likely, and it will be more expensive.
Sony is also coming out with a RX100 Mark II! It will will have an articulating lcd screen and a standard hot shoe added. This is a really sensible and smart upgrade to one of the best point and shoot cameras ever made if you ask me. The only thing the RX100 was lacking was a articulating screen and Hot Shoe. Not just for flash, but for accessories like microphones, or video lights ect.. The RX100 is very powerful, so these features can absolutely be taken advantage of if you have the need. The articulating screen is a bigger deal to me personally, but the hot shoe is an attractive feature for sure.

That is it for now, but stay tuned for my Sony E-Mount 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Power Zoom Lens Review that I’ll be working on this weekend! I also have new gear coming to the Lab, but I’m not 100% what yet. I requested the three New Sigma E-mount lenses, the new Zeiss Touit lenses, and the Full Frame DSC-RX1! Oh yeah, I figured it was time to put that full frame point and shoot to the test in the real world. I’ve seen enough sample photos to be convinced it’s an amazing camera, but is it really worth all that money?
After I review that stuff, I want to tackle the SLT-A99 and a few A-Mount lenses. It’s going to be a lot of work, but the A99 is the current flagship model and I really should have a review of it on SonyAlphaLab. Unless of course know-body cares about it? Any interest in seeing me review the SLT-A99?? If not I will find something else to review, don’t worry!
I will also get to all your comments and questions asap, for those waiting 😉
