This is a topic that at the moment this every time but in flunk for some and in I despair for others.
Sony Alpha 100, classified by some "toy" professionals were alone the beginning of what Sony calls the series Alpha, heiress of the series digital Dynax of Konica-Minolta.
Sony has already announced the future of its trip for the world of the Digital reflex and to the grief of what many believed, apparently if they go seriously and for a good market.
It is expected for these days the presentation, at least not so official, of the pattern for Advanced Fans and the Professional FlagShip of the mark. Many have ended up naming them A10 and A1.
All that that up to now is known they are rumors and speculations that leave of the well-known trajectory for Sony in the topic of the sensors and in the inheritance of KM.
That one expects from A10?, a lot, Sony implants the 10MPx as standard for the fans, when KM, Nikon, Canon, pentax and Olympus stayed in the 6-8MPx and it is logical to think that the designer and creator of the sensors of 6MPx for Nikon D40, KM 7D and 5D and Pentax K100 and of those of 10MPx of Nikon D80, D40x and D80, Pentax K10D and Samsung GX-10 and clearly of Alpha 100, this in plans of even rising but the resolution for the fans.
The rumors are groundless for the products Nikon. The sensor of Nikon D2Xs a CMOS 12.8MPx is the signal one as the probable one in being installed in Alpha 10. With the same dimenciones that CCD of 10MPx of Alpha 100, the factor multiplier of 1.5X would stay, with that which would reinforce and it would even justify but the design of the eyeglasses Sony and Carl Zeiss DT for this sensor.
If this was certain, Sony it would implant or at least he/she would offer professional users of D2Xs a new design, with sensor equal and classified for fans.
That Alpha would bring 1 (Alpha One)?, it is not really known. It is believed that serious a new CMOS and here Sony would go for Canon and it is already spoken of a sensor sold by Sony to Nikon for its future professional for the next year of 18.7MPx with a factor of 1.1X (almost full frame). It is said that Nikon will have the exclusivity of the sensor for 1 year, but it is not specified if his maker, Sony, is excluded of this document.
But if it was this way, perhaps Sony throws its first professional with around 18.7MPx, a camera that will demand the best in the optics and many will have to stay but behind or to change optics.
Carl Zeiss in the scenario.
Carl Zeiss for some time works already with Sony for the optics of its Compact ones and Advance and at the moment new DT and FullFrame are taking out for A100. But the activity of CZ has been increased with the announcement of Sony of two new bodies (A10 and A1) and around 20 new optics among those that CZ are.
Double Sony-Carl Zeiss is not anything worthless and already many are focused in what could be the biggest collaboration in the photographic digital field of the moment.
It is expected that Sony implements a bigger resolution for the fans, its two new bodies are equipped with pentaprisma and until perhaps a supersonic new motos in the body to motorize to optic Minolta and KM of quality that are not motorized. And clearly repeat the stabilizer in the body.
