Watch your back, Olympus PEN and Lumix GF! Sony is releasing its digital rangefinder, NEX-3, soon! A review has been done and from the looks of it, this is going to give a run for Olympus and Panasonic. I really like the slim physique of the body, but not too sure of the lens though. Another attractive thing about the NEX-3 is the tilting LCD screen. The flash is equally appealing as well! Apparently, it handles ISO really well, even usable up to 12,800!

Looks like Sony is gearing up for real war in the digital rangefinder realm. We shall wait and watch...
