Sony service site leaks names of NEX-5N, NEX-VG20 and 55-210mm OSS NEX lens

Viva Canada! The Sony Service website in Canada has accidentally leaked the product codes and one-line descriptions of three upcoming Sony NEX products, specifically a NEXVG20 interchangeable lens camcorder, a NEX-5N black or silver interchangeable lens camera, and a 55-210 f4.5-6.3 OSS lens! More/via including a screenshot shot of the leakage at Sony Alpha Rumors.

The NEX-VG20 as the name suggests would be the second interchangeable lens camcorder using the Sony NEX E-mount, following up on the NEX VG10.

The NEX-5N would be a confusing name, because there is already a NEX-5 camera. It would perhaps also suggest that this might be a sequential update. It is interesting that even though there are infinite combinations of numbers and letters, the marketing/naming departments often manage to find themselves trapped in a box.
