Quick bad news: The Komamoto Sony sensor production facility got damaged during the earthquake. And this will definitely have a huge impact on camera shipments. This is the latest info I got:
- Olympus will delay the new E-PL8 launch
- Sony will delay the A5300 launch. Not sure Sony will announce anything at all this June.
- The Fuji X-T2 will also ship later than expected
How long those camera shipments will be delayed has to be seen. The Sony sensor factory is planed to restart by end of May. Let’s hope there is no unexpected reason for an ulterior delay!
