David Kilpatrick’s predictions on what’s next for Sony

David Kilpatrick (the person behind the Photoclubalpha website) had this to say on the upcoming Sony products:

  • Many Sony lenses will be updated next year: the SSM & SAM lenses will stay unchanged, "but anything currently with a screw drive focus will be replaced with a motor". In general Sony will offer more all-round zooms lenses, and will focus on fast glass, prime and special purposes lenses. Some of the expected lenses are:
    • 16-80mm with SSM (or a revised 16-105mm)
    • 10-24mm SAM
    • 18-270mm SAM OSS
    • 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SSM OSS
    • 60mm f/2 SAM
  • The Sony Alpha 7XX (750?) will have 1080i video and the same sensor as the NEX5/3, 7fps, panorama mode and wide range 3-shot HDR. The optical viewfinder will be comparable to the A700, and it will have SSS. Prototypes of the camera were shown with a CZ 16-80mm lens.
