BREAKING NEWS: Sony’s NEW APS-C System Revealed Starting With The Sony a7000


Just days after receiving details about Sony developing a future APS-C camera we receive our first look at the system to come. Sony is going interchangeable sensor with a catch. The body will now be the Sony ax000 series with modular caring the naming convention we are all familiar with. Sony believes that LCD and EVF technology has become good enough for this kind of commitment and they are working on driving down the price of APS-C while competitors continue to raise theirs. The Sony ax000 is expected to retail for $401.


The first modular will, of course, be the Sony a7000 and it will redefine APS-C cameras as we know them today. These modules will be similar to the Sony a7 line with a standard/High Resolution and Low Light edition being released.
