Sony's high-end mirrorless NEX-7 has a full-size, 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor and a built-in electronic XGA resolution OLED viewfinder in its small form factor. When combined with the optional LA-EA2 Alpha mount adapter, the NEX-7 can shoot and autofocus with the full range of Sony Alpha mount lenses. The camera is the first NEX to use Sony's Tri-Navi interface, which allows faster and simpler manual control of shooting functions.

Description

Panasonic's Lumix GX1 is an interchangeable-lens camera using the Micro Four Thirds System and shares the same Live MOS sensor as its brethren, the Lumix DMC-G3, but has a significantly improved digital image processing engine. And like its predecessors, the Lumix GF1 and GF2, it will use an external viewfinder — the tilt-shift 1.4m dot DMW-LVF2, Live View Finder.

The Olympus E-P3 Micro Four Thirds camera builds on the success of the E-P2 adding a 35 point auto-focus system, a 3-inch OLED touchscreen, 1080i video capture, and a built-in flash.

The X-Pro1 from Fujifim is mirrorless interchangeable lens camera featuring a retro, rangefinder-influenced design, with an assortment of physical controls adorning the body. The camera uses a similar hybrid optical viewfinder to the X100 that will apparently shift field of view depending on the prime lens attached.

The Pentax K-01 is a interchangeable lens camera with a 16-megapixel APS-C sized CMOS image sensor. It's capable of 1080p video capture at 30 FPS, and has a 3-inch display.
