That's his quote: "no APS-C A7000 with TriNavi in 2104"

So will there be one in 2015 ? Or will there be one without TriNavi ? Or will there be an A8000 ?

And of course, this is coming from a rumor site with a very spotty track record, particularly when predicting far off things.

The A7 is close to $2K. I can't believe a company that got into ILCs (when it first planned to make Maxxum mount DSLRs then bought the division from Konica Minolta) to have a product line with higher profit margins than digicams would be content NOT offering an APS-C camera priced higher than $650. Not when they offer a variety of APS-C only lenses that sell for $1000. When they introduced the NEX-7, the problem was that there were no good lenses for it (other than the CZ24). Now they'd face the opposite problem - nobody would want to buy into the system looking to put together a high end kit.

SAR has the connections OK but they are very sloppy and half the time make mistakes or don't even realize what they have, before their very eyes. Therefore they cannot be relied upon, even as a rumor site.

They posted the detailed specifications of what we now know as the A6000 in an issue, last August. 90% the same. I've posted it here a couple of times, and has details in it that have not yet been disclosed by Sony.
