Sony NEX-C3 Photos Leak Out

It looks like Sony’s newest NEX camera has surfaced.  The new NEX-C3 follows last year’s release of the NEX-5 and NEX-3  is rumored to have a 16.2MP sensor and the ability to capture 720p HD video.  Accompanying the new mirrorless camera is a new Sony NEX flash (pictured below).

Both products are expected to be announced in May 2011.  Note that the NEX-5 and NEX-3 were announced on May 11, 2010 following several leaks of product photos in the days leading up to the official announcement.

    I love the NEX series, but it is doomed without a better (and more affordable) lens lineup. Using A mount lenses with the adaptor is not a solution unless you have all day to wait for it to focus. I guess I just don’t see the point of releasing another camera when only 3 mediocore lenses are available.

    Unless an eye-level viewfinder is provided as built-in, the NEX series will not appeal to serious amateurs, leave alone professionals.

    Will the NEX 5 and 3 be discontinued, and if so will the c3 have all the goodies as the 5 and have better AF and higher ISO lower noise like my Canon DSLR T1i or a x1.6 factor sensor.
