Default Sony A77

I heard that SONY should be announcing the a77 in July and it will be ship in October. Can any one confirm? Also, there will be a FF a77 in 2012... Hope this is true..

Much of this information has appeared elsewhere before it showed up on SonyAlphaRumors, so they're both safe bets even as rumors, but Sony hasn't confirmed anything yet.

That introduction may be delayed due to damage to Sony's plants in Japan:

Sony in particular suffered a lot of damage to its facilities that make sensors that can be found in top-line Nikon and Pentax cameras. The company has suspended operations at five plants in central and southern Japan where digital cameras, camcorders, LCDs and other items are made. Sony says it may shift production of some products and parts overseas temporarily.
