Sony A58, NEX-3N, and Lenses Outed as Leaked Photos Emerge


Sony has a couple of new cameras and a set of new lenses coming out, and we’re starting to get a better idea of what we’ll be seeing announced very shortly. Expect to see a new SLT camera called the A58, a new mirrorless camera called the NEX-3N, and a trio of A-mount lenses.

First up is the A58. sonyalpharumors reports that it will have a 20 megapixel sensor with improved dynamic range, 8 frame per second shooting speed, a body that’s roughly the same size as the current A57, a new focusing system, and a price tag of $599.



The NEX-3N is rumored to have a 16 megapixel sensor (the same one as the current NEX-F3), an electronic zoom dial, and a price tag of around $500-$600.




We already saw a photo of this camera leak a couple of weeks ago, but this is the first official product shot to leak.

Finally, the three upcoming lenses are reportedly a 18-55mm II for ~$200-$300, a 70-400G f4.5-5.6 II for ~$2,400-$2,500, and a Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 for ~$1,600-$1,700.




While the exact launch date for this gear isn’t known, there’s a good chance we’ll see the unveiling sometime within the next week or two.

    “70-400G f4.5-5.6 II for ~$2,400-$2,500″ – isn’t that a bit steep for a “slow” lens?

  • JeffH

    Version I is amazing, so this must be double that.

  • Dunia Digital

    A58 will looks like A65 except for new flash shoe mount

    Expecting an overpriced camera…


    Don’t think so. There’s no Canon written on it

  • Drama Price

    Sony cameras are actually cheap. On the other hand, lenses are a bit pricier than competitions.

  • JoeNoName

    its the same lens… they just improved the autofocus, but same glasses, no image quality improved, maybe the sealing and coating…

    amazing is not a word Roger at lensrentals would use to describe version 1.

    yeah, sony has inexpensive cams, but almost all of their lenses are far more expensive than their much better performing canon/nikon equivalents. one of the main reasons i left the sony/minolta camp.

    I really hope they fixed the back focusing problem haunting the a65. Seems to happen more with larger focal lengths. Very frustrating.
