Looks Highly Unlikely That The Sony a7 III To Be Announced This Weekend.

by Anura Guruge



No chatter at all, at all.

So, we have to start thinking end of March or maybe even mid-April.

My druthers insist that a new a7 announcement has to be imminent. But, I could be wrong.

Just keep YOU posted, as promised.

IF Sony a7 III To Be Announced Within Week — Lack Of Rumors/Chatter Seems V. Strange.

by Anura Guruge


There has been a muted expectation that
the Sony a7 III might be announced at the
March 18 – 21, 2017,
The Photography Show“, in the U.K.

was discussed in this post.


IF this is to be the case you would have thought that there would have been much more ‘chatter’ by now.

With the Fuji X-T2 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII, last year, there were tons of ‘leaks’ at this stage, i.e., a week ahead of supposed announcement.

Are we in for a disappointment?

Is Sony this good at keeping announcements under wraps?

Don’t they need to invite press to the event etc.?

Just seems strange.

Hope I am wrong and that we do see the a7 III unveiled this weekend.

Fingers crossed.

This is what it will most likely look like.

Indistinguishable from the existing Fuji X-T1. All the new goodies will be inside. That is FINE with me.

This is THE attraction. I want knobs for MOST of my settings. Yes, the old-fashioned way.

It has taken me 15 months and 5 cameras, viz. Canon T3i, Sony a77 Mk II, Panasonic Lumix FZ1000, Canon G1 X & Sony RX100 II, to work it out BUT I now know what I want in my next camera. Deanna will NOT be happy but she is resigned to the fact that I will get another camera ‘soon’. Well the timing of the new Fuji X-T2 will be perfect and it might keep her reasonably happy. I can wait until close to my 2016 birthday to get it and it has become the new tradition that I treat myself to a new camera for my birthday.

So what am I looking for in a camera. BEST image quality I can get at a reasonable price. That also, by default, means that I want a sensor that is at least 1″. Well with the Fuji X-T2 I can get back to APSC size — what I had to begin with with the Canon T3i.

I am committed to mirrorless. To me a mirror is an unnecessary pain. So the Fuji fits the bill perfectly. Also has a good electronic viewfinder with supposedly split-screen image focusing. That would be heaven. I loved split-screen. Peaking is nice BUT split-screen is better.

All I hope is that the X-T2 offers at least 20MP. Yes, I can live with 16MP but that will seems rather passé in 2016.

For the last 6 months I kind of had this feeling that Fuji will be in my life. I don’t think I have ever owned a Fuji camera. So this will be a first.
