What to expect from Sony in 2017: new 70+ Megapixel camera, Dual card slot A7III, STF lens and 16-35mm GM

In 2016 Sony had quite a weird release strategy. We did not get any new FF E-mount camera but instead we got two very similar APS-C E-mount cameras. First the A6300 and then the A6500. Well 2017 promises to be quite different with a focus on FF cameras. These are the new cameras and lenses we can hope to get in 2017:

  1. Sony A7 mark III. Release before Summer. Has new 24MP sensor with improved AF and dual card slot
  2. Sony High End Professional camera (named A7rIII or A9): 70+ Megapixel sensor, duals slot card. Priced like the 1DX2 and D5.
  3. 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens
  4. STF FE autofocus lens
  5. Telephoto zoom lens (like 70-400mm f4-5.6 G)
  6. telephoto prime lens (like 300mm f2.8G)
  7. wideangle lens (like 24mm zeiss)
  8. standard zoom lens (like 24-105mm)

And quite some folks on the web is joking about a new A6700 release too :)
