Re: bet on it - NEX is only a name

Very interesting, especially your NEX explanation. In some ways it's too bad they didn't continue the NEX, but perhaps they will continue it with APSc continuations.

I would bet money there are going to be plenty of new E-mount APS-c cameras. the fact they won't put the "NEX" name on them is meaningless - all of the "NEX" cameras have always been branded "alpha" as well - these are just silly names and they don't matter, what is clear with the new A7 and A7r is that Sony is making a serious commitment to mirror less E-mount cameras and this is good for all of us because it pretty much guarantees a more complete line of higher quality lenses that will be usable regardless of the sensor size in the E-mount camera you happen to use.

NEX is nothing but a name - E-mount on the other hand is actually a physical thing, a lens mount design. Dropping the NEX name on future cameras change nothing that is important - we should just be very grateful that they didn't change the lens mount - - that would have really left us in the cold

Good points.

NEX stands for Next E-mount Experience. The name did make sense for one generation of different camera models but looks a bit dated after a few years. What do you call the next thing after the last next thing?  Future E-mount models just using the general Alpha brand with model numbers sounds more up-to-date.
