Reducing, instead of increasing, the max focal length and removing the flash also tend to move the M3 out of the casual user's gunsight. This is not a family snaps and vacation camera. I've been asking myself: who is the target user for this model?

Good point, I didn't realize they were removing the flash.

I suspect Sony is divorcing the RX, entirely, from the point and shoot crowd.  They've done quite well with shrinking down pro-level full frame cameras.  Now they want those same serious photographers to consider the m3 as a perfect addendum to their main setup.  Something to -always- have with you and not give up too much the types of images they are used to.

At any rate, it's going to gather a lot of attention.
