That is how you pick a camera?

Partly, yes. I dislike "new vintage" and nostalgia marketing. I like design innovation, and I love design inovation that improves the user experience. Such considerations also play a part in my other purchasing decisions, such as computers, phones, cars, bicycles, clothes, coffee machines or furniture. I also like old stuff though, as long as it was manufactured in the period they borrow their design from. In the photo world, I love my 1948 Leica III, and my Rolleiflex. Those were great designs of their time. The NEX is probably not a design masterpiece, but, to me, it is way more interesting than the OM-D or the X100 or the XPro1....
