Sony A550L Kit Resurfaces at Sony Style USA

Sony A550

It looks like we may be getting very close to the launch of the new Sony DSLRs, as the Sony A550L Kit is back on the Sony Style USA site in a product registration drop down list.

Expect the Sony A850 and A500 too.

The Sony A550 is rumored to have a 15-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor.  The A500 gets a 12-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and the A850 will have the same 24.6-megapixel sensor as the Sony A900.
