These leaked press images, apparently directly from Sony itself, show off two of the company’s hopes for luring in advanced amateurs—with entry-level interchangeable lens cameras.
Snagged by Digicam Info, the images show off two purported new cameras. On the left is the Alpha A58, packing ergonomic tweaks, a new 18-55mm, f/3.5-5.6 II kit lens and—if rumours are to be believed—a 20-megapixel sensor, 8 frame per second shooting speed, new focusing system and $600 price tag for our American cousins (that price-tag directly converts to £386, but obviously it’d be in the price range of the Alpha A57′s original RRP, which was around £499 last year when it launched.)
On the right is a new mirrorless camera called the NEX-3N. More compact than previous NEX cameras, it’s rumoured to feature a 16-50mm power zoom lens, 16.1-megapixel APS-C sensor, and a price tag of $500-600 (the previous NEX-3 goes for about £400 currently). All those facts and figures are, of course, still to be taken with a gain or two of salt. As yet there’s no suggestions as to when they might appear in the wild. [Digicam Info]
