Sony A77 Successor Coming in May, Might Pack the World’s Fastest AF

sonya77

It’s been over a year since the last Sony A-Mount camera was announced, but it looks like that dry spell may be over soon. According to the ever-reliable sonyalpharumors, a successor to Sony’s A77 SLT is on the way, and it’s going to pack some serious speed.

For now specs are almost non-existent. We know that the camera is supposed to pack an even faster AF system than the A6000 (currently the world’s fastest), a super-fast processor and almost no EVF lag.

Other than that, all we have is a name — it’s going to be called the A77II — and ‘many trusted sources’ quoted as saying that the camera will arrive in May at a ‘big’ announcement, meaning we might see some new A and E mount lenses surface at the same time.

Keep checking back and we’ll be sure to update you just as soon as more info is made available.
