    If ever there has been a camera deliberately leaked ahead of announcement, it has to be the Sony NEX-C3. Many review sites have published high quality images of the NEX-C3 as shown below:



    The NEX mount 30mm f/3.5 macro has also been leaked, and based on available images appears to be similar in size to the 18-55mm kit zoom:


    The Sony macro is on the slow side for a "normal" length macro, probably a concession to keep down the size and weight. This may impact its versatility as a "general use" lens compared to something like the Pentax 35mm f/2.8 macro, which is 2/3 of stop faster than the NEX lens and, in contrast to the Sony, stabilized on Pentax bodies.

    Sony is also rumored to be introducing the SLR-A35 at the same time:

    According to SonyAlphaRumors.com, which has a good track record, all of the above products will be announced tomorrow morning.

    Meanwhile, detailed specifications for both of the above heavily leaked cameras have been shared by Photo Rumors.

    30/3.5 macro? Urgh. If Sony releases a slow macro ahead of ANY fast lens ... AAARGHH. I hope we see the Zeiss 24/2 very very soon.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I thought that Zeiss was supposed to be 24 f1.7, no?

    There is a new 24mm f/2 for the Sony DSLRs, but the NEX lens is supposed to be 24mm f/1.7.

    F1.7 is even better! Sorry, I was just throwing out a number out there and thought of the Alpha version.

    The big one will be the A77 and A55 replacement IMHO. If they hold the 999 price for the A77 with a lens. Finally getting a firmware update for my A33 too.
