Sony to replace A700 with rumored A800?

458638465_spupg-lWe’re closing in on PMA 2009, so finalized spec sheets for as-yet-unreleased cameras may be being released into the wild. Expect more rumors over the next month; today, it’s Sony’s A800, the logical successor to the A700, a solid upper-entry-level DSLR with a few polish issues. The list of supposed improvements varies, but from what’s going around I think you can count on:

  • New 15.2-megapixel sensor (up from 12)
  • ISO 100-12800 (who goes that high?)
  • 6.5fps shooting (up from 5)
  • 23-point autofocus (up from… less than that)
  • Built-in wi-fi

There are some more questionable claims, but these basic improvements are probably for real. There’s more at Photography Bay.
