Sony A35 and NEX-C3 Announcement on June 3

It looks like the über-leaky new Sony cameras will be showing up in a couple of weeks if Photo Rumors‘ sources are right.  June 3 is the slated date for the new A35 SLT camera, which replaces the Sony A33.

Alongside the new SLT (translucent mirror camera), Sony is expected to launch its next NEX camera – the Sony NEX-C3, which sports an articulating LCD and a tiny body.  The new (and also leaky) 30mm f/3.5 E-mount lens and NEX flash should debut on June 3 as well.
