Sony A9S is a 50MP, 8K camera coming next year for $5,999 (report)

UPDATE 04/11: New rumors regarding the upcoming Sony A9 camera (possibly to be called the Sony A9S) have surfaced. Apparently, the final price point has not yet been officially set by Sony. However, it is said to be considering a price around the $4,999 mark. This is a slightly more conservative figure than the previously rumored $5,999, but it's still a good chunk of cash.

We've also heard, via Sony Alpha Rumors, that this upcoming Sony camera could be announced on 11 January at the virtual CES show. However, it's also been mentioned that the second wave of COVID-19 could potentially push back the announcement. Either way, the leaks are flowing thick and fast for the Sony A9S, so we wouldn't be surprised to see more information leaked soon…
