Sony plans digital SLR launch in mid-year

"Sony Corp. is on track to launch its first digital SLR (single-lens reflex) camera in the middle of this year, a company executive said Friday.

"The camera will be available in the summer in Japan, and soon after in other markets, said Yutaka Nakagawa, an executive vice president of Sony and president of its digital imaging business group. Sony is hoping to eventually achieve a market share of around 20 percent of the digital SLR market, he said.

"Sony started developing the camera with Konica Minolta Photo Imaging Inc. last year and on Thursday the two companies agreed to transfer digital SLR-related technologies from Konica Minolta to Sony as part of the former’s departure from the photo business."
