At CES 2011 Sony showed a prototypes of the A700 successor, an unidentified lens and a new flash:
No specs or release dates were provided. Photographybay has more photos of the camera.
no nikon, at least sony. nice.
Great! I always prefer my cameras made out of wood anyway!
(sadly) the same stuff as shown at photokina.
It has been mentioned that the actual camera will be different than this mockup. Many design changes and newer technology has been introduced to the latest design.
I expect this camera to be a showstopper, as I am quite impressed with the latest A5XX, NEX, and SLT bodies. I recently sold my 700 and will be using the 580. The increased low light performance was worth the tradeoffs in my case.
