Leak paired with renderings

Sony is reportedly set to introduce a range of new photography gear early next month, including the NEX-C3 and Alpha A35 cameras, a 30mm macro lens, and a NEX flash. Leaked information posted on Photo Rumors suggests the A35 DSLR will integrate a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, with an ISO range up to 12800, while a new tele-zoom high speed shooting mode offers continuous autofocus. The camera is also said to offer 7fps shooting, 15 AF points, built-in HDR processing, and 1080p video recording.

The NEX-C3 specs include a 16.2-megapixel Exmor sensor, with an ISO range topping out at 12800 and a top shutter speed of 1/4000. Users should be able to take advantage of 720p video recording, a new menu interface, 25 AF points, and improved battery life.

Aside from the new cameras, the company is allegedly readying a 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens with an E-mount for the company's NEX-series cameras. The lens is said to offer seven elements in six groups, with 1:1 magnification and a minimum focusing distance of 10cm. The GN20 flash, also designed for NEX cameras, offers bounce capabilities and works from the camera battery as a power source.

All of the new products are expected to launch on June 3, with the A35 and C3 expected to cost approximately $700 and $600, respectively. The flash is believed to be priced around $150, however pricing for the lens has yet to leak.
