Sony A750 Rumor Update

in Sony

Rumors of the Sony A750 have been floating around for a while now in the form of hoaxes and wishful thinking; however, those rumors have recently picked up and the chatter is stirring that Sony will unveil a full frame follow-up to the aging A700.

The rumored specs for the A750 suggest a 14.6-megapixel full-frame sensor, which should fit neatly between the APS-C powered Sony A550 and the high-resolution, full frame Sony A850.  As for pricing, there’s no hard number bouncing around but, if there’s truth to these rumors, my guess would be in the $1500 range.

Why would anyone believe its a FF model and how would that fit against the competition?
The A850 is already missing specs available on models far cheaper and if its going head to head with the D300s, 7D and K7, it’ll need more than a FF sensor.
My guess is on a straight A700 replacement using the 14mp sensor as employed in other Sony models but with a dual-Bionz setup pushing more fps and with more upmarket AF.

Sony is pushing hard in this segment. I won’t be surprised If I attended a conference or a sport event and found out that most of the photographers are holding SONY DSLRs…

Their major current draw backs reside in the bad selection of body spcs. Most of their bodies lack something, especially when it comes to the FPS Speed and focusing system. The other problem they have is in their lens selection. But this is getting solved. The last problem is with their ISO performance. They are producing sensors for Nikon. But they are nowhere as good as Nikon’s DSLRs when it comes to ISO performance.

A higher MP lower noise sensor in the 15 MP range would be nice. Improved AF with more sensors. A crop sensor would be more preferable to me for the reach.I guess time will tell.

Question if Nikon is so good why don’t they make there own CCD Sensor the 3′ inch screen on a Nikon is made by Sony. And don’t tell me cost cause you guys pay 2 to 3 for a Nikon DSLR .and ossme that test was with firmware V2 at dpreview and it don’t tell the hold story take a look at it with Firmware v4. Now let say if Sony tell Nikon screw you make your own CCD Sensor hmm the tune would really change i use to Own Nikon DSLR but not anymore i like to hold some of my change for me not for Nikon or Canon to have.aright Nikon a Pro Camera with insides made by Sony what do that make Sony. and last Remember Sony want to Play in this DSLR Game just wait and see it’s just get started. Sony will push for the front. (Bob) QT- Why can’t Nikon be this aggressive? well Bob cause they have to wait on Sony LOL
