Sony is supposed to announce their latest NEX Camera models together with other cameras, lenses and peripherals this August 23 or 24. The highlight of the leak report is Sony’s new and updated version of Sony NEX-5, the NEX-5N.
Sony NEX-5N is said to feature new sensor, from 14.2 megapixel (of the current NEX-5) to 16.1 megapixels. Another highlight in Sony’s upcoming NEX Cameras is the NEX-7 which is said to be slightly larger than NEX-5N.

Sony has also two new models for their Alpha Series. The Sony A77 and A65. The A77 is expected to have a 24 megapixel sensor and a very fast auto focus. A77 is expected to be bundled with the new 16-50,, f/2.8 SSM lens. Sony A77 price is rumored to be around $1200-$1300 USD without the kit lens.
