    Leaky Sony, more new models spotted A750 and A950

    FACEPALM

    Just to make things more confusing, we have the potential addition of two MORE cameras adding to the current lineup. The latest being the A750 and A950 along with the previously hinted FF A850, A500, and A550.

    Sony, this is fail. We don't need 10 models at $200 price increments. How about some lenses?

    I posted this in another thread before I'd read this one.

    Is it significant that the A900 has seen some price cutting going on in the channel. Prices are down to 1599 in the Uk and HK are very active in trying to shift their stocks. I can't see why they would do that simply because of the A850; there are bound to be people who are happy to pay more for the FPS of the A900 especially if it's true that production has ceased. I wonder if the replacement camera is nearer than we think
    Seeing as the A750, 850 and 950 have been mentioned on a Sony Support site I guess it has to be taken as genuine. In which case the cost cutting in Channel makes sense. In which case what is coming in the way of improvements?

    hmmm interesting. the price isn't dropping here. All the Sony bodies (well for sure the A700 and A900) have not really dropped.

    The A700 has dropped from 650 to 520 in the last six months or so but I'm not sure how recently the latest price came about. Of course prices in Europe are much higher than in the States.

    Talking Bring it on, Mom!

    Doesn't it make you wonder what in the heck SONY is waiting for? If there is this much change in the works, there is no way Canon or Nikon could respond. C'mon SONY ... make it happen! School is starting.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Doubt they will be able to compete if the s750 does not have video. since the D300s has video and will AF with it too.

    I can't decide if I want video or not in my next cam.
