No, but there will be next year, which is when they say that the second body will be released.

I do hope that the high-amateur model will be at shops in June.
Not only at papers. Crossing fingers...
Pro model at Photokina ? That's in 17 months from now
By this rate they will complete the 5 model lineup in 5 years.
Not to mention the upgrades they'll have to make by then.


may the light be with you

This means that Canon and Nikon can hibernate for about a year or 3 to 4, wake up, make a few [re]new[ed] models and still stay ahead of Sony.

Sony better wakes up, fast.

June would be nice. I'm hoping they release the camera and the vertical grip at the same time. Also hoping the combination won't cost over $2000! :)


It's most likely the case that Sony is plodding along slowly now due to R & D not lack of commitment. Canon and Nikon have been making camera's for so long that they can turn around new camera's in a short time. Once Sony gets there feet on the ground they should be able to pick up the pace and start turning around a lot new camera's. Whether those camera's are are going to be good is anybody's guess. I don't think anybody is going to mind if Sony takes awhile to release new camera's as long as they are good camera's and maintain a high quality. But I think Sony is going to have to change there goals on capturing #2 in the time they initially predicted.

R & D isn't something you can throw a lot of money at in hopes that something good comes out of it. It takes time, a good team and proper organizing. Sony has deep pockets but they seem smart enough to realize if they aren't making the profit margin they predict in the DSLR market then they would go back to making what they did before.

Don't worry, Sony are very dedicated to see this through and doing a great job.

They already are, Chris. They're not putting their full weight behind this because they're just kidding around to see if they can make a buck or two.

OK, but how do YOU get so sure ???

"Just kidding around to see if they can make a buck" sounds a bit unserious, don't you think ?

haha, always wanted to make a multiple quote post...

serious: I've been working some time in M&A-consulting. So far Sony hasn't made any obvious mistakes, everything's been just working according to the announced schedule (except the 16-80) and even more than that. Assuming what brainpower's behind their decisions I'm quite confident that they know what they are doing. C/N can hibernate for some years, why not... Do you really think Sony is expecting to roll up the entire DSLR-market in just five years? The horizon of such companies is usually far beyond that.

He used his "magic eight-ball"



Cato: rubs his magic eight-ball and ask if Sony will release a new camera in June
Magic Eight-ball: chances are good

i'd like to see the pro-am in june, in time for summer. This model should be feature and price competitive with the canon 30D/40D. I'd guess 1,000 to 1,300 dollars.

I suppose they will release one more body this year to replace the A100 but didn't show it yet to not stir up the competition ...
