I still don't fancy the new design... Sony purposely design it to be smaller... But I still prefer it to be BIG... I sitll prefer the old design over this new one!!!



Live view... A330 and A380 comes with it...



New kit lens... 18-55 F3.5-5.6(SAL-1855)... Previous kit lens had better range... 18-70(SAL-1870)... This new kit lens incorporates aspherical and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements to provide an all purpose lens with outstanding image quality... Unless this new zoom lens offer better sharpness and image quality, if not I don't see the purpose of Sony introducing it because the old kit lens can cover a much better range compare to this new lens...


New telephoto lens... 55-200 F4-5.6(SAL-55200/2)... You will get this telephoto lens if you choose the twin lens kit... This new lens is basically the same as the previous telephoto lens (SAL-55200)... The only difference is this new lens features an ED glass element and helps bring distance subject closer... The same goes for this telephoto lens... Is just so identical to the old one... Unless this lens offer better image quality and much faster auto focus... If not, is really redundant for Sony to release this new telephoto lens...



New 50mm F1.8(SAL-50F18)... This new 50mm will definitely be cheaper compare to Sony existing 50mm F1.4(SAL-50F14)... Hmm don't know how much does it cost in Malaysia... As this is a DT lens, which means is for APS-C size image sensor... So if Sony price it unattratively, I think a lot of people will go for the old Minolta 50mm F1.7 as this lens is able to cover a full frame sensor...



New 30mm F2.8(SAL-30M28)... This is a dedicated macro lens...
