Picture of flooded area near Sony factory in Thailand

This is a picture of the Hi-Tech Industrial Estate in Ayutthaya, where the Sony plant in which are manufactured the NEX-C3, NEX-5n and supposedly also the NEX-7, is located (note this is not a picture of the plant per se , just an area inside the same industrial estate).

From this Bangkok Post article: http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/local/261543/fourth-ayutthaya-estate-falls

Unfortunately, I believe there is going to be a shortage of NEX-C3 and NEX-5N cameras, and the NEX-7 is going to be delayed at least a couple of months until normal production resumes at the plant and Thailand as a whole recovers from the massive flood.
