Is that why they gave a voucher for a free metabones adapter in Australia?

A rather obvious 'bait-and-switch' marketing ploy... and the extra premium that Aussi customers normally pay for their gear probably covered the cost of the adaptor anyway!

A business is about selling its product, not running a charity program for enthusiasts and professionals alike.

In fact, the selling point of NEX was no different than for a7, or will be for any E-mount camera: size and adaptability. In addition to native lenses. Don't tell me the bait that worked on you was the native E-mount lenses that were available at the time, if you've had NEX for 2+ years like many of us.

I have no idea what you are trying to say here

Stalking me around the forum, writing unitelligible gibberish beneath my posts and then always getting the same 2 'likes'... very, very strange!

DUMP the HUMP! Campaign for *REAL* NEX replacement bodies

I think that EG is trying to say that the A7 selling points are the same as the original NEX - the only thing that I'd add is that there is a close competitor here (Leica) that is multiple times more expensive on every product (bodies and lenses) so to some the FE lenses look like bargains rather than very expensive items - I am sure that Sony will release more Sony lenses (like the current kit one) at a lower price as the system gains traction (and equally sure that they won't bother if it doesn't).
