Sony Alpha A35 seen as launch gets near

Sony Alpha A35 spotted in advance

The same source that uncovered the NEX-C3 has also given out proof of a suspected sequel to the Alpha A33. The simply titled A35 is superficially a straightforward sequel to the translucent-mirror DSLR with a similar body. Photo Rumors couldn't obtain many details of the camera itself but did confirm an 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens.

An upgrade may not necessarily involve a new sensor beyond the 14.2-megapixel example used today but could see performance upgrades to switch on new features. It may add the same 1080p video recording as Nikon's counterpart with the same sensor, the D3100. Other candidates could include faster shooting, more autofocus points, or better battery life.

Few clues have come about as to when the A35 would ship. Sony Netherlands provided the first hint when its site briefly showed a teaser graphic for the A35, but the most direct sign appeared at the start of April when the A33 was discontinued in Japan. Sony may primarily be waiting on stock to clear out before releasing the new model.
