Sony Electronics Asia Pacific announces the NEX-3N

Sony announced the NEX-3 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with the NEX-5 back in early 2010. Now three years later we finally see a update to the NEX-3 whilst the 5 has already gone through two upgrades since, the 5N and the most recent 5R.

What may be a little confusing to the consumer is the NEX-F3. It confused us at first because the NEX-F3 was released before the NEX-3N and with the NEX-3 being so long without a replacement it was easy to assume the NEX-F3 was a replacement. With such a small compact body sporting an APS-C sensor and interchangeable lenses the NEX-3N makes for a formidable upgrade path for any point and shoot user looking to upgrade their skills.
