Sony NEX-5T Announced

 Sony NEX-5T

Alongside the new A3000, Sony has released the NEX-5T as a successor to the popular NEX-5R. Although a mild upgrade to the NEX-5R, the NEX-5T features Near Field Communication for easier WiFi connectivity.

The Sony NEX-5T sports a 16.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor (same as the NEX-5R) and is available in a kit with the 16-50mm power zoom lens with Optical SteadyShot inside. The NEX-5T features the same Fast Hybrid AF system found in the NEX-5R, which combines phase-detection and contrast-detection AF for fast and accurate autofocusing.
