Sony Releases New Cameras, Including Mirrorless and DSLR

Sony has had a busy morning, with the release of five new cameras including three Cyber-shot point-and-shoots, a new mirrorless in the NEX-3N and a new 20.1 megapixel DSLR in the SLT-A58, the last of which is priced incredibly competitively at just under $600.

Sony's camera offerings all appear to be aimed at consumers, but if you're like me, you do like to have a Canon Rebel level camera at your side as a third camera or for video. What Sony is doing with the DSLR for under $600 (and that's with a kit lens) appears to be really well priced, and likely is a move to try and leverage some market share. Really, all the new cameras here are extremely well priced. I'm curious to see what the market acceptance of this consumer line will be.
