I called it!
Well, kind of…
I said that it definitely makes sense for Sony to make a higher end APS-C camera and that it would be styled more similarly to Fujifilm’s X-H1 camera… with a centered viewfinder, LCD panel on the top of the body, and multiple control dials.
I also speculated that it would be marketed as the a8 series camera because that makes perfect sense.
Sony has already used a6xx, a7, and a9.
Naming a new camera a7000 is asinine and makes it sound like it belongs in the a7 series.
But the wind seems to be blowing towards a7000!
And I am preemptively going to say I was wrong about the name…
Everything else I think I’m right about though.
