Well it seems to be plastic over a magnesium alloy body.

Any evidence or are we only surmising?

I've put quite a few digital cameras through travel assignments and for the record, Minolta A2 is fragile, also Nikon 8400 whereas Olympus 8080 is tough as old boots, as, according to a colleague is Canon 20d. If the build qual of the Sony is anywhere near that of the Oly I shall splurge as, in every other respect, it seems to be the biz - for what i need anyhow
