Sony has today announced their new flagship mirrorless camera, the Sony A9 II. The rumours of a 36-megapixel sensor were wrong, although it still looks like a nice upgrade over the original Sony A9. While some of the specs look quite similar, Sony says many features have been upgraded to “meet the needs fo professionals”.
A new image has been published by Sony Alpha Rumors, which they say is a leaked shot of the Sony A9 II. An image had previously been leaked earlier this month, and the new one appears to match up with the details that we can see.
They also report that journalists, YouTubers and bloggers have been invited to a camera launch the same weekend as PhotoPlus Expo in New York next month. It may not actually be exhibited at the show itself, though. Sony’s name is still notably absent from the PPE exhibitors list.
Here is some interesting news for the weekend. Sony Alpha Rumors just posted a leaked photo of the upcoming Sony a9II. While leaked photos are sometimes real and sometimes “shopped”, SAR is usually a reliable source. The good news: The camera will be announced in October and displayed at the PhotoPlus show in New York. We will be there to provide real-time coverage.
