According to a listing on its Australian site, Sony's just launched the A3500 mirrorless camera, but don't get too excited yet. It seems to be a mild reworking of the A3000 released just six months ago with an identical body and specs, like the 20.1-megapixel Exmor APS-C sensor, 1080p video and 3....
