Absent sample pics aside, we did get to video Sony UK’s digital imaging specialist Paul Genge, running us through some of the features of the NEX series, among them, Anti Motion Blur, which captures six images in quick succession to make the best shot in low light conditions.

Also on show were numerous lenses for this E-mount system, including the 18-200mm behemoth that won’t be available until September.

Sony also boasts that its Alpha DSLR lenses can be used on NEX cameras with an adapter. Yet broadening the appeal of the NEX still further, are adapters from the likes of Rayqual for Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Leica lenses. However, Sony's response to these options was predictably muted. ®
