Other than the release of the Sony A9 II, Sony has been frustratingly quiet recently. It feels like we've been patiently waiting for news on the Sony A7 IV and the Sony A7S III for months now, but other than a few vague rumors, we've been left bereft of any solid information. In this world of constant camera leaks, this is pretty impressive in itself. However, it looks like the tight seal has loosened, and a tantalizing rumor has slipped out. 

Apparently, Sony will definitely be announcing some new E-mount gear around the CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan. While the source that reported this has said that there will be at least one new camera, there isn't any further information on what this camera might actually be.
