Re: Sony to rival GH1 with NEX7 E-Mount Camera

The video camera is not a NEX7, that would bring too much confusion to the model line. I wont say it is not a NEX branded device, but i cannot see it as the NEX7.

The camera shown at :20 is an A900. It clearly shows the name plate elsewhere in the video. Also, that camera has a ginormous pentamiror/prism. That would nto be necesary for a camera such as NEX. What it is saying is any SONY mount lens can fit this camera, which is true, though they do not mention the adapter.

I would expect the NEX7 to be more like a traditional SLR form factor, perhaps even the new pellicle cameras forthcoming. At least more buttons/dials/knobs form easier manual control (which is not that bad on current NEX cameras)
