Sony Debuts Alpha DSLR Concept Cameras, Micro Four Thirds Model Among Them

Today Sony made a play at the micro four thirds format we're covered extensively here at Gizmodo in the past, and it arrives as part of a slew of just announced concept cameras in its Alpha DSLR 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. [Sony]
