The Sony users must be glad to see that even after Kumamoto Earthquake the Sony Corporation is much serious to announce A99 II in this very Year. Recently, Sony Alpha Rumors has published a roadmap of Sony cameras that are highly expected to come in 2016 including the Sony A99 II followed by A9 (A new camera of Sony).
Very likely to be introduced in 2016:
Sony A9– Sony is going to introduce a new range of camera for their professional users that rumored to have come with 70+ megapixel, bigger body, dual XQD slot.
Sony A99II– Its predecessor, Sony A99, still on the market, was released back in 2012 and the users are restlessly waiting for the update of this camera. So, Sony A99 II is mentioned in the list of upcoming cameras of Sony in 2016. And according to the latest rumor the A99 II (A-mount, trimmed for sport and not for high megapixel). Had not the Earthquake damaged the Kumamoto production center, Sony A99 II could have announced till now, maybe the only culprit is the Earthquake. But if we run our eyes from the very beginning, we can see that Sony’s main aim is to introduce this camera most probably at Photokina 2016 in September.
Unluckily, we don’t have reliable information about the announcement of A5300 and A7III (may be released in 2017 only).
