My take on the A77 replacement

Well since everyone else has started a thread on here I figured I may as well start my own.

This is all what *I THINK* will happen with the next 'high-end' APS-C camera sony releases.

The name: A78

Megapixel: 24

FPS: probably 8

Screen: tilty-flippy as per usual.

EVF: fancier and more dots than ever.

Tethering: no

WIFI: yes

Bluetooth: yes (Sony puts bluetooth/NFC in everything these days)

SLT tech: the same as they have now.

I believe this camera will follow suit with the way the A58 turned out. It will be a mixture of the A65 and the A77 with the 7 series branding. Not to mention a whole lot of disappointment.

My proof of this is this photo:

I think this would pave the way for a less expensive full frame model (if they dare put one against the A7), and a higher end full frame model down the road.
