Off topic: Sony A7xx UI

Sony did show the A700-successor at PMA this year. Sony also has a record from showing the A700 and A900 the same way at PMA a couple of years back. As you might remember, the A700 came later the same year and the A900 the year after (as hinted). The final production cameras came out in almost every detail just like the models presented at PMA .

I sure hope that the final user interface on the A7xx has a lot more buttons than the mock-ups at PMA 2010. That would be one of a few welcome deviations from what Sony did ever since they did it right - once upon a time, at PMA 2008.

The current NEX UI (someone posted it is designed by Sony Ericson??) appears worrysome in that respect. Dear Sony, a camera is not a cellphone - not yet. Shiver.
