|Today Sony has announced the Sony Nex-5 and Nex-3 Camera. Sony says that they are the “world’s smallest, lightest interchangeable lens cameras.” They feature a Sony's 14 megapixels Exmor APS-C sized sensor, and Sony’s E-mount lens system which is compatible with DSLR lenses with the use of an optional mount adapter.
The NEX-3 has 720p video and the NEX-5 1080i. The NEX-5 has a smaller, magnesium body, and an extra twist-button on the top plate. Otherwise, the specs are the same.
Available this summer. NX-3 $550 with pancake, $600 with 18-55mm zoom. NX-5 $650 with pancake, $700 with zoom.
