    At Sonyalpharumours there is a article about new A3500. I don't know if there is anything significant over A3000 but LCD seems same than A3000 and there isn't anything about EVF mentioned (I think that these are the most problematic parts of a3000).

    It does not appear to offer anything new in the camera itself......However, the thing in the spec that made me pay attention is teh mention of a "NEW" 18 to 55 kit zoom. In view of the excellence and importance of the current 18 to 55 I shall be most interested to see what the new one does better (or worse maybe!)

    It's a 18-50 lens starting at f4 so it's a little slower with reduced range. It is also an AF only lens (no focus ring) and no OSS. Looks like they made a new lens to be able to have a very low kit price.

    I don't know much about the A3500 personally, however I noticed in Australia at JBHiFi, it's currently $299AUD with lens. Seems VERY cheap for a new APSC camera with lens. Even if it isn't anything special.

    Unfortunately I don't have any friends or family that would want a camera, otherwise I'd grab one. Perhaps I still should, it might make a decent birthday present.

    I read somewhere that the A3500 is Australia-only. Is that true, has anyone seen it anywhere else?
