Sony NEX-C3 triple review (including DPreview) and new A35 review.

The Sony NEX-C3 is getting heavily tested by the most important review websites! And before you get submerged by the upcoming A77 and NEX-7 news and reviews take a look at those articles:

Yesterday DPreview (Click here) posted their NEX-C3 article. The camera gets the “Silver Award” with an overall score of 74%. It is the same score of the Olympus E-P3 but the NEX-C3 has a better image quality and is cheaper!
Also Photographyblog (Click here) tested the NEX-C3: “While usability has been improved, with a number of customisable controls, the NEX-C3 is still best suited to the beginner rather than the more confident prosumer, who will bemoan all the button pressing that’s required. ” The camera gets recommended with a rating of 4 of 5 stars.
The last review is from Whatdigitalcamera (Click here): “The C3′s new sensor is a success, images look great and the camera’s smaller design looks the part too. The price is held at a very reasonable sub-£450 point and there’s very little not to like bar some control issues.
Click those direct search links to check the NEX-C3 price and availability: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

There is also a new Sony Alpha 35 review at Techradar (Click here): “In terms of performance, the SLT-A35 is highly responsive, while image quality – whether you’re shooting JPEGs and/or RAW files – is equally as impressive.
SonyAlphaLab (Click here) tposted some A35 image samples.

(SR5) A77 comment by sources

And here are two more A77 reports coming from two sources:

Source_1: I can confirm the A77 pictures are real – they match the unit I’m holding in my hands now. FYI, the 16-50 is a mixed metal/plastic lens, like the CZ 24-70. Autofocus is as fast and quiet as the 24-70. As for the D-range button, the buttons on the A77 are massively customizable, you can assign a different function to each! And the smart teleconverter can be switched to a 100% live view magnification.

Source_2: I am just looking at a few pics taken with the CZ 24-70 and the new sensor. So crispy it tears our eyes out plus a bit of moire…now we know why those expensive lenses are are there :) With 24 Megapixel the pictures also look more “wide eyed” and “deeper”.

Reminder: Sony will announce all the new stuff on Wednesday August 24! This includes the A77, A65, 16-50 f/2.8 lens, vertical grip for the A77, NEX-7, NEX-5N, BG20, Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 for E-mount, 50mm f/1.8 OSS for E-mount, 55-210mm OSS for E-mount and new external EVF for the NEX-5N. Be sure to be online at SAR to follow the Sony announcement!
P.S.: You can find SAR also on Google+, Facebook and Twitter!
