The Most Exciting Camera Rumors of 2017: Sony

Sony Camera Rumors

Sony had another killer year, with their cameras increasing in popularity and their sensors being used in everything from iPhones to Nikons. The Alpha series looks like it will get a new flagship camera in the a9 (also called the a7RIII), as well as an update to the the a7. Sony has already announced the FS7 Mark II, and with their increasingly quick new camera turnaround, we could hear about an FS5 Mark II in the coming months.

(Some specs are pretty realistic and on par with current models, as manufacturers like Sony, Fujifilm, and Nikon all suffered delays after the 2016 earthquake in Kumamoto.)
