Sony a5 Coming Soon, Price under $1,000
Sony currently has no competitor to the Canon EOS RP: A sub-$1000 full-frame camera with a modern focusing system… Sony’s a7 II currently fills that role, and is readily available for $900, but it has a tiny battery, frustrating controls, and an outdated focusing system, and as a result, we never recommended it.
Now Sony is rumored to announce a new Sony a5 entry level full frame mirrorless camera in the next few days. And this Sony a5 will be priced under $1,000. If it turns out to be true, the Sony a5 will be a great competitor to the $899 Canon EOS RP.
Sony will have a big product annnouncement in June 2020 (probably June 26) and below are the upcoming Sony products:
We hope the upcoming Sony a7S III full frame mirrorless camera will have a fully articulating screen on the side just like the Sony ZV1. In addition, the Sony FE 12-24mm f/2.8 GM wide-angle zoom lens will be priced around $4,000 and it will offer superb image quality and it can be equipped rear filter, maybe like the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM lens – making it an ideal lens for landscapes, architecture, close up portraits, sports, action, vlogging and much more.

Reminder: Sony USA has released the new instant rebates on selected Sony mirrorless cameras for June 2020. And you can save up to $300 on Sony a7R IV, a7R III, a7 III, a6600, a6400. For the first time, the Sony a7R IV camera body has got $300 off.
