New Rumors recap: A7000, A7sIII, new lenses…

Time for a recap before we post some new rumors:Sony A7000: One source heard the camera might be announced before Christmas. But so far I got no confirmation from other sources and no new Sony camera has yet been registered in Asia neither. The little we know about this camera is that it has an EVF in the center and that it’s going to be a sort of mini-A9. Likely specs: 4k60p, 5.6 milion dot EVF and 20fps. Sony officially confirmed that developing professional APS-C camera is a must.
