Around the same time last year, Sony entered the Micro 4/3 digital camera market with their Nex-3 and Nex-5 cameras, offering up the lightest of its kind in the market at the time. Soon it is time for an upgrade and today we can give you a first look at the successor of the Nex-3 – the NEX-C3.

Coming with the same same 16.2 MP APS-C sensor (1.5x crop factor) as the Sony Alpha A580, Nikon D7000, Pentax K5, Sony has updated the looks, made everything a little more round and sleek, as well as compact. The camera will be offered in three package deals, each coming with a different lense. An official release date has not been announced yet.

Take another look at the Sony NEX-C3 after the jump.
