Sony NEX-5R and NEX-6 leaked again

The Sony NEX-5R has been leaked again, this time with photos of the new mirrorless cameras. Where the previous leak came courtesy of an Sony Indonesian agency product inventory, the latest images come courtesy of Chinese site VR-Zone. While it might have been expected that the NEX-6 might have picked up the additional dial from the NEX-7, it looks as though Sony has given the NEX-5R a boost with the additional function control.

Additionally, the NEX-5R also looks to have picked up the 180-degree tilt view finder that first appeared on the NEX-F3 making it useful for taking self-portraits and giving it even greater flexibility for taking shots in crowds or from above the user's head. Although the camera retains the same 16.1-megapixel resolution of the NEX-5N, it is said to actually be a new APS-C sensor with onboard phase detection autofocus. As previously rumored, it is also expected to sport Wi-Fi connectivity.

The new NEX-6 is expected to slot in between the NEX-5R and the NEX-7, but takes a different approach to the design and position of its function dials. Instead of being placed adjacent to each other, the dials are stacked on top of each other helping to make for a more compact shape. Also of note, the functions include a more standard PASM layout which aligns with Sony's adoption of a standard hotshoe mount. It is unclear at this time whether the NEX-6 will sport the same sensor as the NEX-5R or the higher specified NEX-7 sensor.
