NEWS: New Sony Alpha A33, A55, A580, A560, Lenses

Today was the official press announcement of several new and exciting Sony Alpha cameras and lenses. The list of new bodies is as follows: DSLR-A580, DSLR-A560, SLT-A55, SLT-A33. In terms of new lenses: Carl Zeiss® Distagon T* 24mm F2 ZA SSM (model SAL24F20Z), a DT 35mm F1.8 SAM (model SAL35F18) and an 85mm F2.8 SAM (model SAL85F28).

With the introduction of the new A33 and A55 comes new technology and terms that will require a brief explanation. These two new cameras use what Sony is calling Translucent Mirror Technology™ which basically means that unlike traditional DSLR cameras where the reflex mirror moves out of the way during exposure, the SLT (Single Lens Translucent) cameras mirror is fixed and light passes through it during exposure. This will allow for fast, accurate autofocus during video shooting.

Read on for a summary on the individual cameras and lenses.
