Don;t know if this is news to you. Someone spotted some infos on new alphas, here:

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1037&message=22889878

On short, in a "barbarian" automatic translation :) :

"[...]The firstly next introduction be will expect in June or July. There will be then only introduced of the two models with what new Len zen. The second model stands planned for next year, supposedly during then keep the Photokina in Cologne.
[...]Well-informed sources at Sony the Netherlands told to the redactie of this Internet site that there tries meanwhile version of CX62300 in the Netherlands present are. According to this source one talks at Sony themselves already concerning Alpha-300. Current Alpha-100, as it happens, the work name will have CX62100 has. "

And the original page link

The barbarian translation is pretty bad :)

Allow me to recap the most important bits of the article.

CEO president europe has discussed the 2 new models of the sony DSLR range during a press conference on Rhodos.

He said that the 2 new models will expand the current offer from sony.

Interesting bit (and new for me) is that he has told the world in the past that a brand should have at least 5 DSLR models to be taken seriously.

First model would be introduced in june/juli together with some new lenses. The other cam next year, propably photokina.

The working name of the mockup models would be :
pro-sumer    : CX62300
professional : CX62500
Appearantly the marketing names have not been decided on.

According a source within Sony Netherlands there would be a working prototype of the pro-sumer cam in holland at the moment.
This source also claims that the marketing name would be Alpa-300.

The first next introduction be will expected in June or July. There will only be introduced one of the two models with some new Lenses. The second model isi planned for next year, supposedly during the Photokina in Cologne.

[...]Well-informed sources at Sony the Netherlands told to the redaction of this Internetsite that meanwhile there is a try-out version of CX62300 present in the Netherlands. According to this source people at Sony already talk about Alpha-300. The current Alpha-100, has had the workname CX62100. "

The original text in Dutch : De eerst volgende introductie zal in juni of juli te verwachten zijn. Er zal dan slechts een van de twee modellen worden gedntroduceerd samen met wat nieuwe lenzen. Het tweede model staat gepland voor volgend jaar, vermoedelijk tijdens de dan te houden Photokina in Keulen.
[...] Welingelichte bronnen bij Sony Nederland vertelde aan de redactie van deze website dat er inmiddels een probeer versie van de CX62300 in Nederland aanwezig is. Volgens deze bron praat men bij Sony zelf al over de Alpha-300. De huidige Alpha-100 zou namelijk de werknaam CX62100 gehad hebben.

Translation from a Dutch guy.

A new Sony at Jun/Jul would be great, lets hope it's not the same time isue as with their other gear tho, I ordered a sony 1.4 TC from a store here in sweden (Feb 12) about 2 weeks after it was for sale in US, and still it hasn't arrived to any store in sweden, my new and 4th delivery date from the store is april 24.. :/

And this isn't even a new toy, just a minolta TC with a new name on it and they can't deliver in time... sigh.

If I had bought it from US instead from sweden I would have gained about 25-30 USD, if I should order it today from US I would gain about 140 USD so it sucks sometimes :/

Me-Too.

Just keep the knobs. I was in a camera shop today playing with the A100 (they know me a little too well ;) )

I like the left hand function knob on the A100. Couldn't imagine doing that stuff with menus and buttons.

Now is A700 - Thanks Dyxum!

AmPhot this week has a newsbyte about Sony officials on tour around Europe removing the little cards with the CX designations on to avoid any interpretation that they would be the names...

You can't put any faith in something that talks about a photokina launch. There is no Photokina this year.

Just keep the knobs of the 7D and (first of all) those beautiful Minolta colors. This is the most inportant to me!
