Sony has taken official wraps off of the A3500, which was leaked last week. The camera seems to simply be a rebadge of the current A3000 model with a lower caliber kit lens.
The 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens in the A3000 kit offers image stabilization, while the 18-50mm f/4-5.6 kitted with the A3500 is slower (at f/4 on the wide end) and is not equipped with optical image stabilization.
The A3500 retails for $499AU only in Australia for the time being. Meanwhile the A3000 (with a better lens) remains a ridiculous bargain at $294 for its current sale price and is on backorder because of it. Even when it’s not on sale the A3000 retails for only $399.

Sony is expected to officially announce the new A6000 mirrorless camera tomorrow; however, we get a sneak peak a little early thanks to this image of the new E-mount mirrorless camera that leaked out.
The A6000 continues the rebranding process of Sony’s E-mount cameras, which were previously branded as NEX models. Since Sony consolidated the Alpha branding, new mirrorless cameras have dropped the NEX moniker in favor of the Alpha moniker and have simply been referred to as an A* series model number.
