Sony is going to release a new camera in March – but it won't be a model that anyone is expecting.

While many (us included) were expecting a Sony A9 III, to succeed the former flagship Sony A9 II, it appears that Sony is readying the launch of an all-new full frame fixed lens compact camera – a niche but exciting format that is currently pretty much dominated by Leica, but that so far failed to take off with mainstream camera brands.
