It will also feature a hot shoe and accessory terminal. Plus, there are several Sony-only features, including a rechargeable Infolithium battery system, with to-the-minute awareness of remaining battery life, along with Nightshot and NightFraming features for taking crisp pictures in no or low-light conditions.
