edotgm: Does it allow in body usb-charging like the nex-f3?
I would be surprised of the absence of such a useful feature :-(

I wouldn't say useful. I despise that.

One: It exposes the camera unnecessarily to the fluctuations in electricity current. Your country may or may not have stable electricity, but one thing for sure: it is unnecessary. Same principle as using the data cable vs. pulling the SD card out to copy pictures.

Two: You can't use the camera while charging. More of a nuisance when you have a backup battery (because then your camera would be out of service -not to mention being exposed to electricity directly- for twice as long, when charging).

Nope, the in-camera charging, IMO, is a baaad idea.
