The rumors have been out there for a while – Sony is done with the Translucent Mirror Technology and going full mirrorless in its Alpha A-mount cameras.

The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di USD lens for Sony Alpha mount is now shipping. Interestingly, the lens carries the same $1299 price tag for the Sony Alpha version even though it does not offer the Vibration Compensation function feature found in the Canon and Nikon versions.
(For those unfamiliar with Sony Alpha cameras, they feature sensor-based image stabilization and, therefore, do not require a lens-based image stabilization function.)
You can find the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di USD lens for Sony Alpha mount here at B&H Photo.
The upcoming full frame NEX-9 is rumored to accept full frame Sony Alpha lenses; however, it is supposed to do so without the use of the LA-EA3 NEX-to-Alpha converter like the Sony VG900 camcorder uses.

The NEX-3N with an 18-55mm kit lens is priced at $498 and should also be available in April. The NEX-3N is available fore pre-order here at B&H Photo (it’s also available in white).
