Sony APS-C fans hold onto your hats – by the end of the month we could be seeing not one, but two new Sony APS-C cameras. Rumor website Sony Alpha Rumors has reported that Sony will be announcing these two new cameras in late August – and we believe it's possible that one of them could be the long-rumored Sony A7000.

Interestingly, it appears as if one of these new products will be replacing the Sony A6500, as apparently "the A6500 is EOL (end of life)". Released in October 2016, the A6500 has been dogged by rumors of its replacement for months now. With powerhouses such as the Fujifilm X-T3 giving Sony stiff competition in the APS-C market, it wouldn't be surprising if Sony was looking to make serious upgrades to its current line-up.
