Sony's Gorgeous Alpha Micro Four Thirds Fighter Sadly Just a Concept (For Now)

Today Sony made a play at the micro four thirds format, promising giant DSLR quality in a little camera. The camera in question arrives as part of a slew of just announced concept cameras in the Alpha line:

- Concept model of an ultra-compact interchangeable lens digital camera system that packs the quality of a DSLR camera in an extraordinarily small body, along with interchangeable lenses (this would be the micro four thirds play mentioned in the lead - j.l.)
- Mid-range concept camera for advanced users (a successor to the α700) as well as concept mainstream models
- Prototype of a Super Telephoto Lens (500mm F4 G) with class-leading optical performance
- Prototype of a Distagon T 24mm F2 ZA SSM, new Carl Zeiss wide angle lens for superior shots of landscapes and sweeping vistas


More to come, including renders and screenshots, as Sony's press site starts to cooperate again. Just note these are concept cameras before you doing any jumping up and down or anything. But, so was Samsung's own proprietary micro four thirds competitor, which is now very real. [Sony]
