a3000 comes with supposedly "NEX-7 exclusive" black 18-55mm kit
1

I just heard the a3000 will come with the supposedly exclusive to the NEX-7 kit black version of the 18-55mm lens. The only reason I chose to order the kit as opposed to the body-only back in 2011 was because of Sony's press release and follow-up literature/interviews stating that the black version contained in the NEX-7 kit would be exclusive, and therefore a potential collectible and worth the additional $250. I am a gadget geek, and have purchased tens of thousands of dollars of Sony electronics, but this is leaving a very sour taste in my mouth. In short, I feel duped.

Any thoughts from NEX-7 kit owners out there?

P.S. I just emailed Sony Customer Support an abbreviated version of what I wrote above and asked what they plan on doing to restore my good-faith in their company.  I'll update this thread if/when I hear back.
