Sony Launches Less Useful Z5U

Sony today announced the NXCAM, an AVCHD-based "professional" camera which bears a striking resemblance to the EX1 and Z5U.

You get 1080p exmor CMOS chips (presumably 1/3"?) and records AVCHD to the highly popular (sarcasm) Memory Stick media.

Pricing hasn't been announced, but presumably it'll be in the $4000 range like the Z5U. I'll be curious to see how this shakes out in the market.
