The target group for this camera mostly don't care about wifi and ultra high res lcd. A higher res screen would have been nice but as it is the screen is good enough. Also, the price would have been (even) higher.

Hubertus Bigend: Is it just me, or is my impression correct that since Amazon's acqusition of dpreview even the most popular cameras take longer and longer to get reviewed and more and more reviews only come in trickles? If I still was the "early adopter" of camera tech I kind of used to be for some time, dpreview could not exert much influence on my decisions anymore these days.

@antifocus; yes, the reviews are thorough and ok. They just lose their relevance because of the delays. And so is Dpreview as a site to which people turn for their info. Smart businesses understand the need for speed on the web. Companies like Kodak didn't, now look where they stand now (talking about fim's death ...)

No, it's not just you. I think Dpreview has become that slow in reviewing new cameras and lenses that the site has lost it's interest for a lot of people. See also the whining interest in the forums. If they don't change this policy Dpreview will be an - extint - dinosaur soon. Enthousiastic bloggers like Ming Thein, Robin Wong etc. will take over because they are able (and willing!) to act fast. Manafacturers are already aware of this and give their new stuff to these bloggers to review.

Of course Sony shared the E-mount specs with Tamron. Sony has a 11% share in Tamron and they (Sony) benefit from more NEX-lens support. I wouldn't be surprised if the current non-Zeiss labeled NEX-lenses are all made by Tamron.

"Metallic" is not "Metal". I think the outer barrel is made of plastic with a metallic finish. Also, the lens mount looks to be made of plastic. Would be a pity if true.
