Sony Alpha Rumors is in the midst of collecting more and more information from credible sources which point to a presumably exciting month of August for the Sony camp. While Sony themselves have confirmed that a full-frame successor to the A900 is in the works, the topic of conversation has been a bit stagnant as of late, allowing Canon and Nikon to soak-up the full-frame talk handily. Is now the time in which Sony plans to unleash a true large-sensored contender?
According to sources close to SAR, this indeed seems to be the case with an announcement of a full-frame SLT model touching down in “late August.” At the moment, credible details regarding the camera are still a bit hard to come by, with only its presumed name, the A99, remaining a constant throughout the reports that have been released thus far.
Additionally, it has also been mentioned that some new A-mount optics might be announced along side the A99 as well. Talk of a Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 SSM seems to be gaining a lot of traction as of late, and today’s “indications” further reinforce it’s presumed existence and release in the foreseeable future.
What do you think? Will Sony announce a full-frame SLT before year’s end? Share your thoughts in the poll below:
