It looks like the first photos of the NEX-3 replacement, the NEX-C3, are leaking, so release is probably imminent. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=38271632
It seems most of the difference is cosmetic, outside of the new 16.2MP sensor, which is going to cause my NEX-5 some envy. That sensor, which is also in the D7000/K5/A580 is very, very good. There's also a new accessory flash coming, too.
