What is the hole in lens hood top right hand corner for?

Gosh, I didn't realise it was April fools day already. I better go out and start shooting. Strapless, most likely.

Pankrac: Massive improvement or not, for me the saddest implication of this announcement is that the demand for and the price of A6000 are not likely to drop significantly any time soon. It looks like both A6000 and A6300 will remain in Sony's line up for the foreseeable future. Similar to RX100 M1, 2, 3 and 4?

Where do you live Thematic and where do you buy your stuff from? Best you can get in the UK (with kit lens) is £489 which is about $720!

If you insist on having a grip, check out this one:

I reckon model G3 would suit the camera nicely. $9.99 is a more reasonable price too.
Me personally, no added grip is the best option. I bought one for my RX 100 and ended up with just leather 'skin' - same finish as GM1 comes with as standard.

samdman: In my opinion, this review really reflects DxO findings.

Does this mean that NEX-7 is 'scientifically' better than 6 times higher priced camera?

Food for thought.

Not only that, but this using this comparison NEX5N is better than a 10 times higher priced camera. Is it?

Mine disqualified too... A picture of a pure white wall lit in such an angle that it shows almost 3D detail of its surface. Increased contrast and conversion to bw to show it the way I saw it - shades of white from its purest grade with no detail in it to almost black in the darkest shade. Have a look if you want and tell me what you think.

Not sure what is white in some of the pics left in the challenge. The Host hopefully does.
