Sony full-frame camera coming, 500mm F4 lens finally announced

Sony has confirmed it will be making a full-frame replacement for its flagship A900 DSLR. No further details were given during a round-table discussion at the CP+ show in Japan, but we find it hard to believe the result will step away from the SLT technology the company has invested so heavily in. The company has also finally announced the A-mount 500mm F4 lens that it has been showing in various states of preparedness since PMA 2007 will be available from late March.

Looks like 2 Sony FF's are coming, one this year and one in 2013. The first is believed to be a 24 megapixel SLT (transparent mirror) and the other is supposed to be a 36 Megapixel, but not sure of the mirror configuration, or lack thereof.
