Give us a little more Sony
11 months ago

I apologize for placing this post on this new thread, but it seemed lost in the middle of the "A6000 build post."

I'm answering captura's question of why a revamped A7000 would not cost with a metal frame considerably much more than the fiber A6000:

Sony realized how relatively easy it would be to capture a huge market slice with an enhanced but relatively budget priced A6000, and emphasized the sensor it had waiting for the delayed NEX-7 replacement, gave it to the A6K, and economized as much as possible to knock their new APS-C camera out of the park. And Sony did achieve a home run on it. Now it's time to tweak the A6K a little and still maintain an attractive price. The A7K's technology need not be futuristic and expensive. In fact, many of us see the wisdom of 24.3 MP instead of 34 & 36 or even 42 MP. And some metal vs fiber just should not cost all that much. Remember your 5R! Gads, we're remaining in the APS-C for a reason so don't price us into immobility. And keeping a camera's price keeps it attractive to the mass market. It might even get your cameras on the same shelf with the Canon and Nikon DSLRs. We like your A6K Sony, so just give us a little more, please!
