Pro-Level Sony APS-C Camera Rumored to be Released Soon

According to sonyalpharumors.com, a new high-end Sony APS-C sensor camera will be available by Christmas 2018.

The rumor states that this camera would be sort of a “mini a9,” which makes me think this may be released as the first body in a new alpha 9000 (a9000) pro-level APS-C series.

We may see an a9000 first, before Christmas, followed up in early 2019 with a more prosumer-oriented a7000.

The naming conventions are mere speculation at this point, but it would make sense to mirror the a7 and a9 full-frame series with smaller-sensor cameras of similar capabilities.
