The rumors of a replacement for the Sony A700 just won’t die. There has been a lot of chatter lately about the A700 being discontinued with a replacement coming around CES 2010 or PMA 2010. Note that the A700 is still in stock at B&H Photo.
The above image surfaced over the past few days and purports to show a Sony A750 model. I remain skeptical about this “leak.” The image appears to be a rebadged A700; however, the image is too small to inspect any level of detail.
The A750 key specs attached to the image include the following:
- 18.2-megapixel Exmor-X CMOS sensor
- 10 fps
- HD video
- Live View
I wouldn’t hold my breath based on this rumor, but Sony will surely be adding some cameras to the Alpha line up this winter, and the A700 is a prime candidate for replacement.
If anything happens on the DSLR front soon, it should be at Sony’s press conference next week at CES. Stay tuned here, and follow Photography Bay on Twitter for instant updates from CES 2010 if you can’t wait for me to sit down and get the news up on the homepage.
