UPDATE: Sony has since confirmed that it will, in fact, be attending the Photo Plus trade show in October – and it is therefore likely that the Sony A9 II will be shown at the event.

"Sony tells PetaPixel that they actually WILL BE GOING to the Expo," reports Petapixel. "A spokesperson responded to our request for comment by writing that the Photo Plus team 'has just been delayed in adding Sony to the site.' and they expect Sony 'will be officially listed on there either later today or tomorrow.'"
