Plastic (was) rapidly being confined to cameras under $800

If you remember the very first NEX cameras, the 3 and 5, one was metal, the other plastic.  The plastic one was more bulky because plastic is weaker than metal and requires thicker castings and things like threaded metal inserts to hold screws.
