It looks like Canon isn’t the only one ready to re-start the dreaded Megapixel Wars with a high megapixel camera that has been all but confirmed to exist. Nope, fresh info from highly trusted sources claims that Sony will be jumping into the fray as well with a 46MP full-frame camera to be announced at the beginning of 2015.
The news is being reported by both Sony Alpha Rumors and Mirrorless Rumors. SAR is reporting with 80% confidence that a 46MP camera will arrive in either A or E-Mount in Q1 or 2015. MR goes a bit further by saying that it will ‘almost certainly’ be a full-frame E-Mount camera in the A7 series, adding that it will feature an advanced AF system like the one found in the Sony a6000.
No further details are available just yet, but it looks like we’re in store for some interesting releases in 2015. Multi-layer sensors, high-megapixel cameras, larger sensor compacts… stay tuned and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on all of it as info becomes available (officially or otherwise).
