Sony To Shake-Up the Camera Market?

sony_nex

Sony is set to release new mirrorless cameras with SLR-sized sensors, starting at $550 this summer.  These cameras are smaller than the micro-four-thirds cameras released by Panasonic and Olympus, but have larger optical sensors.  The cameras will be available in a kit with either a 16mm f2.8 pancake lens (24mm equivalent) or with a 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 image-stabilized zoom lens.  An 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 stabilized zoom will be offered later this year.

Sony will be offering the NEX-3 with 720p video for $550 with the 16mm lens or $600 with the 18-55mm.  The NEX-5 will have a magnesium body, 1080p video recording, and will sell for $650 with the 16mm lens or $700 with the 18-55mm lens.  Both models ship with a detachable flash.

Here’s how they compare in size to the Panasonic GF-1:

Imaging Resource has an in-depth hands-on review of the Sony Alpha NEX-5 and seem pretty impressed.  Gizmodo also had a chance to get their hands on one and DPReview has more details on the NEX-5.

Here's a video reveiw from CNet:
