Default Sony A700 successor at PMA!

This is level 4 rumor. That means SR site owners are reasonably confident about it!

The full press release actually states "... a successor to the α700 ..." not once, but twice!

Now, let's just hope that "successor" really means "successor".

The one on the right looks like an A700 sucessor to me.

The "AVCHD" logo means it can record video.

Sony and Panasonic agreed on something. Can you imagine?

The Japanese guy in the Youtube video said the left side camera in the pic above is for the 300/500 class and the right side camera is 700 class. Both have HD video capability. He also talked about the new 24mm F2 CZ lens and 500mm F4 G lens.
