There really isn't much to say about this replacement for the Sony NEX-VG20. The VG30 basically has an updated EVF -- the same OLED model that's in the VG900 -- and incorporates a rocker zoom lever to work with the new power zoom lenses. In fact, it will ship as a kit with the new 18-200mm lens for $2699.99, or body only for $1799. It also gains the new Multi Interface Shoe, which makes it compatible with all the new accessories.

It's slated to be available in November.
