Sony registered a new entry level camera in Asia. Olympus registered the 150-400mm PRO in Russia.

We got two new official product registrations to report via Nokishita:

  1. Sony registered a new camera in Asia. We know it’s an entry level model because it doesn’t use the 5Ghz WiFi currently used by their top end cameras. I guess this camera might be a new RX model
  2. Olympus registered the new 150-400mm PRO lens in Russia. Expect preorders to open soon. BHphoto and Park Cameras UK already listed the lens.
