Sony Has ‘High-End’ APS-C E-Mount Camera On The Way For 2015 | Rumor

By Anthony Thurston on December 15th 2014

It’s hard to think that Sony could put out a much better APS-C E-mount camera than the A6000, the camera that makes all APS-C shooters drool. But alas, it appears Sony will attempt the feat in 2015.


Sony Has ‘High-End’ APS-C E-Mount Camera On The Way For 2015

According to a new report out of Sony Alpha Rumors, one of their ‘trusted’ sources (aka someone who has given accurate/truthful info in the past) has let it slip that Sony plans to announce a new high end APS-C E-Mount camera in 2015 that will sit above the A6000 on the Sony Totem Pole.

Right away, this sounds like it could possibly be the long awaited successor to the NEX-7. Though, at this point, there is no reason to say that quite yet, as no reliable specs have been shared regarding this camera.

Still, it would make sense for Sony to up their APS-C game as well, with Canon and Samsung both releasing impressive high end options in the last few months and Nikon expected to update theirs in early 2015. It will be interesting to see how this plays out…

    Considering the good video performance, they should also improve the audio. And given how many mirrorless shooters use legacy glass, in body stabilization would be nice too.

    Also hoping they release a FE mount 70 to 400mm f/4 G lens to go with it :)

    Yes – looking forward to see what they come up with. Guessing this is the a7000?

    Assuming the sensor is competitive (read: from Sony it has to be) It’s all about the AF in the higher end APS-C segment. Burst rate is important, but if you can’t track moving objects, 10+ fps use will be relegated to simpler stuff like capturing a dozen frames of your eight year old swinging at a pitch in a baseball game. :-P

    I don’t know if this is an upcharge/upgrade target for current Sony APS-C mirrorless shooters or if they are going after the 7D2 reach/wildlife/sports crowd with this, but it will be interesting to see. I always look forward to what Sony has cooking.
