Sony’s new QX10 and QX100 smartphone lenses are rumored to be launching next week around August 27-29. Additionally, a new Sony NEX-5T (replacing the NEX-5R) and the Sony ILC-3000 are also rumored to be announced.
The Sony ILC-3000 is believed to be a mirrorless camera in the form of a DSLR. The general design of the ILC-3000 is rumored to replace the existing Sony Alpha lineup of SLT cameras. Purportedly, Sony will no longer make SLT cameras with the translucent mirror technology inside – opting instead for a full mirrorless design while maintaining the DSLR look and feel.
Finally, Sony is also rumored to announce a new 16-70mm f/4 lens and a power zoom 18-105mm f/4 lens with OSS built-in.
Keep a look out next week as the launch date approaches.
I sure hope all of my A mount lenses will work with this new ILC… If I have to buy new lenses again, I’m going back to Canon!!!
