Possible Sony A7IV specs: New sensor, 3.69 milion dot EVF, 4k60p, $2499

SonyAlphaRumors posted the first bunch of rumored Sony A7IV specs:

  • Announcement in Q2 2021 at earliest
  • A74 will have a new sensor with faster readout and will not recycle the 24 MP one. My source told me it will be in the 30-32 MP region
  • The EVF will have 3,69 Mdots and not 5,76 Mdots
  • Most probably the LCD will also be on the cheap side but the image quality and AF will be top notch
  • The video will certainly be 4K 60p and will feature the new menus.
  • The price will be in the $2499 region


New Canon Rumors: New 21MP global shutter sensor for the R1?

CanonWatch reports that Canon has developed a new image sensor with these specifications:

CR reports that there might be two RF 35mm f/1.2L lens in development (one having Defocus Smoothing). And also two big telephoto are in the works. CanonWatch says this might be two 500mm and 300mm f/2.8 lenses.

New Nikon patent discloses and impressive 10-22mm f/2.8 Z lens!

Canon shows that a way to make your mirrorless ecosystem look attractive is to offer something unique. And this is what Nikon wants to achieve with the newly patented 10-22mm f/2.8 Full Frame Z lens!
We can’t be sure yet this lens will make it into real production. But currently there is nothing like this in the world and I think Nikon has to make it for real.

The patent describes four variations of the lens:

This may be the entire Canon RF lens roadmap for 2021…sixteen lenses to be announced???

Apparently Canon is going full Sony attack. If the rumor is correct Canon will have a total of 16 lenses announced in 2021. CanonRumors writes:

These lenses are likely next in the pipeline:

  • Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
    External zoom, extremely small size. I’m told it’s about the size of a coke can.
  • Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM
    This lens will be better optically and in build quality than the EF version.

These lenses are likely being announced in 2021:
