Sony a99 II Could Be Delayed By High Demand In Japan

Sony a99 Mark II Delay

In an announcement Sony Japan (seen on Sony Alpha Rumors) apologized and warned that they are facing high demand for the A99 II in Japan, and that customers could expect a later-than-expected shipping.

Here’s how the announcement as translated through Google Translate.

“With regard to the digital single-lens camera ‘α99 II’ will be released on November 25th, has received bookings exceeded initial domestic sales plan significantly, it has become a situation that does not keep up with the domestic needs of our customers . For this reason, it might get time to deliver the goods. That you apologize for any inconvenience to our customers and you wait, I apologize.”

Because the A99 II exceed Japan sales plans, we have to imagine that global plans were also caught off-guard. Though Sony hasn’t said whether or not international shipping will be affected. The a99 II is due out at $3200, on November 25th.

We’ll keep an eye on this in case Sony does end up delaying the a99 II outside of Japan.
