CP+ show to be held in March 2018 (March 1, 2018) and we can see that there would a lot of imaging stuffs be announced at that event. Sony is also prepared with its products. But we want to see what are the cameras Sony would love to announce in that CP+ show.
So far we know that most anticipated camera like Sony A7S III, Sony A7III are due for announcement and these are the cameras that are highly speculated to be announced in 2018. However, no specific date we have yet, but A7S III may be reserved for NAB show so there is a big possibility that we could see Sony A7 III at the CP+ Show.
Sony A7 III
There have been a lot of lanky rumors for Sony A7III and the recent rumor from the reputed rumor mills already told to expect Sony A7S III at NAB show. So CP+ is a great platform we believe for Sony A7III.
As the rumor clearly says that it shipping will be in first half of 2018. Means we can expect its announcement prior to NAB or exactly at NAB show. Sony A7III will be a trim out version of the massive Sony A9 that is rumored to feature 24 MP sensor 6fps, joystick, touchscreen, 4K 30fps and it may hire the AF system of Sony A9.
Sony A5100 was officially discontinued in 2016 and since then Sony hasn’t announced its update. So we are desperately waiting to see announcement for Sony A5300 at CP+ show. However, there is no big information we have at the moment about Sony A5300, but the rumor mill says that there could be a A5xxx APS-C E-mount camera model for CP+ show. Let’s hold our fingers crossed to see the event.
In lens, we could see Sigma’s first native FE lenses! This one will be big. detail is short for insufficient information.
Other lens is the Zeiss 25mm f/2.4 FE also on the Horizon.
If not at CP+ show then prior to NAB show and later at Photokina Sony has some exciting information for their users.
However, no words on Sony A77 III, but it could be announced sometime in Q3 of 2018.
