Sony NEX3. See cnet for more pictures.
It appears that the nex big camera introduction is Sony's entry into the digital electronic-viewfinder interchangeable-lens (DEVIL) category. cnet has a brief article about the NEX3 with some pictures of the camera, and a hands-on appraisal of the NEX5 with a video and some image samples (showing what appears to be good ISO 1600 performance. Scant evidence from which to draw conclusions, I admit, but still). cnet Senior Editor Lori Grunin's conclusion in her introductory video of the NEX5: "More than any other interchangeable-lens camera I've seen, the NEX5 seems optimized for the point-and-shoot upgrader—not necessarily because it's easier to use than any other, or that it's priced particularly low, but because it's full of constraints that will probably bother enthusiasts a lot more than snapshooters."
Meanwhile, TOP's indefatigable Official Roving Editor-At-Large, our man in Croatia, Vlatko Juric-Kokic, will be attending the Croatian launch of the Sony cameras nex week. He'll report*.
*Hopefully without Yr. Hmbl. Editor's gratuitous, lame, and obvious attempts at puns.
