On Sony NEX-6 Hands-on Preview preview (229 comments in total)

according to sony usa site the nex 6 does have a touch screen ""The NEX-6 features a perfectly designed control dial, Fn (function) button, and touch screen with touch shutter function lets you focus on the shot instead of the menus."" and again ""Mode control dial and Quick Navi assure quick and intuitive operation comparable to DSLR cameras Control dial, Fn (function) button and touch screen (including touch shutter function) combine to greatly facilitate operation and speed getting the shot.""

So it looks DPR have it wrong or at least their preproduction model had incompelte firmware.

amblepath: I think that picture of the whole stable of 4/3 lenses with the Om-D made the nex system seem pretty sparce. This announcement is I think a 'don't jump ship they are coming' type of announcement.

the m43 lens look comprehensive but alot of them are just updates to previous. And duplicates across brands. how many 14-42 lens does anyone need?. There are really only 3 gaps with NEX compared with m43 - a super wide zoom eg 12-24, a long tele zoom eg 100-300 and a G lens to compare against the new oly 12-50. All of these seem to be on the new roadmap.

On Sony NEX-7 high-end APS-C mirrorless camera first look article (355 comments in total)

the button with 2 dials that change function on button press harks back to the Dynax 7xi film camera from Minolta from the early 90's which used this approach. worked well then - promises to work well now. Cant wait to see a Nex 7 in store.
