Is the NEX-5T the last NEX camera?

Interesting thought, and scary

While Sony is doing great things inside their cameras they seem to be moving to more conservative design on the outside. I can understand that some buyers want a traditional shape -- maybe especially those Sony hopes to attract from the DSLR market -- but seems to me digital offers the chance for genuinely innovative and ergonomic design.

I like my A3000 well enough for what it is, but putting it beside a NEX I have to wonder just how much dead air is inside the thing. I hope they continue to offer more compact and more creative options.

Whatever happened to the designers who gave us the 828 and the earlier swivel cameras? My 828 was perhaps the best handling camera I have ever owned. If they brought it back with a modern chip and processor I'd buy another one tomorrow.

The cell phone clip-ons are an encouraging step, though I think the current phone software holds them back. So maybe there is hope.
