That looks like a doctored image blending Nex-6 and Nex-7 elements, and sloppily done, imho.

  • The Mode dial is too small - just compare it with the Nex-6 and A7.
  • The flash-socket is non-metal? It should be shiny.
  • The flash-unit is too short - what will this be: GN2?

I would expect a Nex-6 top with flash unit, but carried forward as-is, unless they managed to get some of the A7 styling on the top plate (according to the rumors). If so, they could move the shutter button to the top plate (alike A7/r) and allow for a second dial in the front.

But I doubt that they have enough room for all that, so I expect it to be very Nex-6 'dual-navi' like (one dial on top).

I agree, it looks PS'ed. Not a bad job though. They have taken a NEX-7 top plate and made the alterations it seems.

According to SAR the grip is supposed to be like the A7, the grip on this is almost identical to the current NEX-6/7.

However, the matt plastic surface is probably expected. The rumoured price does not indicate mag alloy body.
