UPDATE: With only a few hours to go until the Sony Alpha launch event, the speculation is mounting about the mysterious 'Sony A1'. This rumored camera is said to include a curved sensor, which could result in smaller and faster lenses. However, some more potential specs have now been leaked.

Rumor website Sony Alpha Rumors has reported that one of its sources said, "I saw the unseen [camera] and trust me, you will never be blind in the dark again. CRAZY high ISO." It also seems that this new potential camera will use the E-mount and will be the "most expensive E-mount camera yet".
