Sony Alpha A9R
Could Sony launch a high-end pro-spec mirrorless flagship camera?
Predicted specs: Full-frame 70-80MP sensor | Same body as Alpha A9
With the arrival of the fabulous looking 24MP, 20fps Alpha 9, what can we expect next from Sony?
While the full-frame 42MP Alpha 7R II is clearly still has one of the best sensors available, we can't help but speculate that Sony are going to try and get even more pixels on a full-frame sensor, potentially almost doubling the resolution offered by the A7R II and pitting it against medium format cameras.
Put this sensor in the Alpha A9's body with its more polished control layout and the Alpha A9R could be a monster of a camera.
Sony Alpha A7 III
Rumors are growing that we could see an update to Sony's enthusiast full-frame mirrorless camera
Predicted specs: Full-frame 24MP sensor | Joystick AF control | Advanced AF system
That means we could see the 24MP sensor make its way into a more affordable body, and while we don't expect to see it capable of rattling off 20fps to rival the A9, we should see a serious speed increase too.
We'd also be surprised if the A7 III gets the same awesome 693-point AF system as the A9, but again, we'd expect to see a big leap over the AF system in the A7 II. To quickly toggle between AF points, expect Sony to give the A7 III the same mini joystick that's on the A9.
