According to the trust-worthy reports from Sony Alpha Rumors, created from word for numerous known sources, Sony is prepped and ready to unveil the successor to the acclaimed NEX-7 in April and further develop upon an already class-leading mirrorless camera.
Sony Alpha Rumors has just received and shared the first leaked image of the upcoming Sony NEX-3N – the successor to the current NEX-F3 and what’s appearing to be just a slight update over its predecessor.
