Sony at CP+ Show, Sony A7 III OR Sony A7S III ?

Sony CP plu show image

Let’s take a look what Sony have for the next CP Plus show announcement .

I don’t remember Sony announcing any particular digital camera exactly on the CP Plus show..  Announcement may happen sometime in the month of March and April but it will going to arrive in the CP Plus even I am not able to confirm this at the moment.

Before we begin let me tell u that there are two consecutive show coming in, first one is the CP Plus (Camera and Photo) so that will going to happen in the first week of March and after that we have NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) so which is more video centric made for Videographers

Last year the Sony A9 was announced on April 19 and the Sony A7 R3 camera was announced on October 25. We have to mirrorless camera overdue for announcing the first one is Sony 7III and the second one is Sony A7 SIII.

If you look and upcoming camera model code,  we have 1 mirrorless camera registered for Wi-Fi certification and its model code is WW 541200 (features built in WiFi and Blue tooth connecitvity)

Sony Camera Expected to arrive CP plus show 2018

Sony A7III
So I am sure,  Sony will going to announce at least one Mirrorless camera  in next few weeks.  and I do expect the announcement of Sony A7 3 camera,  with autofocus system same as of Sony A9.  completely new 24 megapixel sensor,  advanced image stabilization system  and 4K video.

Sony A7S III Coming at NAB ?

Now the upcoming NAB so is more videos  centric,  so we may see Sony A7 SIII announcement during the month of April.
A7S series is more dedicated towards video and low light still shooting. We do expect introduction of Sony A7S III camera with BSI or stacked CMOS sensor with ISO 819200 or more.

We have already published the list of Sony upcoming camera 2018. So, you can see list of more cameras in that article.

And Sony Announces 18-135mm IS Lens at $600

Sony 18-135mm lens

One of the best thing I have noticed today is the announcement of Sony E-mount 18-135mm lens. This lens is so important that Canon and Nikon DSLRs offer this lens as a kit lens with APS-C sensor based DSLRs after 18-55mm lens. The lens covers a perfect range that eliminates the need of zoom and standard lens alone and perfect companion for travel photographers.

This new APS-C lens features a versatile 18-135mm focal length, aperture range of F3.5-F5.6 and Optical SteadyShot™ stabilization. The lens is an ideal fit for Sony’s popular APS-C sensor cameras including α6500, α6300 and α6000, and is an extremely useful tool for a wide range of shooting situations ranging from daily life to portraiture, landscape, nature and travel photography.

Additionally, the 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens offers fast, precise, quiet AF performance thanks to a linear motor, making it a perfect complement to the high-speed shooting and impressive video capabilities of many of Sony’s mirrorless cameras.

Pricing and Availability
Visit B&H

So, in near future the upcoming we do hope that next Sony announcement (possibly Sony A6700 or Sony A7000) will carry 18-135mm lens as a kit lens option.

Request to Sony, I am not talking about FF / F-mount users here. But for APS-C / E-mount users they should announce something affordable then current DSLR makers offering.

Price of 18-135mm lens vs Canon and Nikon (Nikon discontinued the 18-135mm DX lens and it’s no longer available)

Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Lens Canon EF-S 18-135mm IS USM Canon EF-S 18-135mm IS STM  Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens
$598  $399  $549  $598
 B&H  B&H  Amazon  B&H

Let me say you for a photographer like me do look over price tags while getting a camera or lens. Believe me I never buy a camera or suggest it to someone without looking entire price of the system (that includes essential lenses like portrait, Landscape, Zoom and Macro ).

Sony Upcoming Camera 2018

Sony upcoming camera 2018

2018 was a awesome year for Sony camera division And all of us also. Sony A7, A9 series camera raised the temperature of FF camera section. Being a Canon user I do appreciate the speed of development that Sony showed the world. Sony is the only FF camera maker that offers Fullframe Mirrorless camera under $1000 with kit lens. Now Sony is the only company that makes Fullframe BSI CMOS sensor and Sony A9 is world first camera to offer Fullframe Stacked CMOS senor.

1. Sony A7 III – Mini A9, Early 2018

I have no idea why Sony is delaying the update of Sony A7II camera. Since, the Sony A7II is the only camera that’s limited to Full HD video mode in A7 series line-up. According to the information we have received the while ago the upcoming is A7III series camera will going to be a trim down version of the current A9. So an Affordable A9 is on its way.

I feel that once the sale of A9 goes below a specific volume the will put a NEW mini A9 for consumers branded under the A7III name.

2. Sony A7S III – ISO 3.2 – 6.5 Million ISO range

Probably three months after the announcement of GH5s as I feel so. Since, Panasonic is trying to mimic the Sony A7 series pattern of cameras and as the information we have received the GH5s core specs will dominate the A7S II camera. But Panasonic forget that, Sony A7s II is using same sensor of A7S camera announced back on April 2014. The Sony A7SII sensor is based on FSI and NOT a BSI tech, So I personally believe that if Sony introduces BSI or BSI + Stacked CMOS tech in next version of A7S III camera by having the same resolution they will touch 3.2 OR +1 stop that’s 6.5 Million ISO. It’s necessary also to beat the Nikon D5.

3. Sony RX100 VI – Not too early

Very less information available related to RX100 V successor.

4. Sony A9R – 70-80MP | 600+ AF points | 5-7FPS | 4K | 5axis IS

Sony A9R isn’t dead yet. We may see a long rumored 70-80MP Stacked CMOS sensor based camera sometime in September to flush out the Canikon FF Mirrorless announcement. I am not sure but Sony is also preparing for a big announcement sometime in Sep 2018. The next gen of A7R IV / Sony A9R will get a massive high resolution sensor with 600+ AF points and 5-7 FPS of continuous shooting speed.

5. Sony at CES 2018
