This is why you wait. I want a NEX 6 but I am waiting until they get down to under $400 for the body. Only a matter of time as I'm sure Sony will release another camera with a built in EVF

And in the meantime, you will lose the fun of shooting one of the most fabulous cameras introduced in years.

The NEX-6 was introduced almost exactly a year ago. Had you purchased it then, and put a dollar in the bank every day since then, it would have cost $400 - and you would have had the joy of using this great camera all 365 days. And the next 365 days. There is no certainty that the NEX-6 be at $400 a year from now, no matter what Sony introduces. They're concentrating on the dSLR looking camera market now.

There's no freaking way I would not spend a dollar a day for 2 years to reconcile the price I paid for this great image-making machine.

But Mel, you know my wait to get a NEX. I'm not sure about your economic theory, but there is a satisfaction in getting a deal, especially on what is a discretionary item for many of our wives. For me the objective was point of entry, and Steve helped by tipping me off to 5r open boxes @ $349 for me.  I can now keep the 5r, which I think I will since it's so portable, and then add a 6 or 7x when their prices plummet, & they all do at some point. I took a couple of 16mm shots, and will share them when we unpack from the boat.
