Sony A79 and A99 Successor Coming in Early 2014

The Sony A99 successor is rumored to feature a 36-megapixel sensor with a built-in 4-million-dot OLED viewfinder. The new Sony A79 will be the first mirrorless APS-C A-Mount camera and won’t be in the SLT line.

The successor for the SLT-A77 will still look like a DSLR camera but has a slightly new design. Sony A79 specs have been leaked and the replacement of the A77, is rumored to feature a 32-megapixel Exmor HD sensor and a 480-point AF system.

A Good Conclusion From SAR

Sony strategy is likely the following: ILC-E-mount cameras like the A3000 will replace the low end A-mount cameras. And future A-mount cameras will focus on the semi pro and pro market.

The Sony A77 is currently priced for $898.00 at Amazon while the Sony A99 price is for $2,798.00 at Amazon.

    If they increase the sensor size on the A77, I hope they improve their High ISO Noise filter. Anything 2500 over on the A77 and the photos are pretty much not usable.
