Sony will continue its legacy of digital innovation by announcing two new cameras and three new lenses into the competitive interchangeable lens camera (ILC) market; announced late last night are two new cameras, the α3000 and the NEX5T, as well as three new lenses.
The new Sony α3000 is the latest addition in the E-Mount system. A brand new style of E-mount camera from Sony, the α3000 offers point and shoot simplicity with the image quality, comfortable body style, and creative freedom one would expect from an interchangeable lens camera or traditional DSLR. Packed with a 20.1 megapixel Exmor®APS-C sensor, Full HD video shooting capability, a bright LCD eye-level viewfinder, and a Multi-Interface Accessory Shoe for system accessories, it’s loaded with features all in a lightweight body. And with quick AF in Live View and up to 3.5 photos per second shooting, it’s designed to captures life’s action!
Replacing the NEX-5R in Sony’s successful line of compact interchangeable lens cameras, the NEX-5T takes on the feature set of its predecessor and adds two new options. The first is NFC (near field communication) for one-touch shooting and sharing of images on Android-based smartphones and tablets, and the second option is an E 16-50mm power zoom lens (SELP1650) as the basic kit option. Like the NEX-5R, the new NEX-5T has a 16.1 megapixel Exmor®APS-C sensor, Fast Hybrid AF for DSLR-like focusing, Full HD video capture, Wi-Fi® and PlayMemories™ Camera Apps for connectivity and expanded functionality among a host of other features. The new NEX-5T is everything that has made the 5 series great year over year, but now even better.
In addition to these exciting new cameras, Sony is also offering three new E-Mount lenses!
- Vario‐Tessar T* E 16‐70mm F4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss performance in a compact mid‐range zoom lens with Optical SteadyShot and F/4 available at all focal lengths
- E PZ 18‐105mm F4 G OSS A smooth, quiet, high‐quality mid‐range power zoom model that’s ideal not only for still images but also for movies—Sony’s first G Lens for E‐mount cameras.
- E 50mm F1.8 OSS Black Utilizing the same optical formula as the current E 50mm F1.8 lens, this new model offers customers a new color option of black.
