Agree with you and there should be consequences for those that do so. This is quite valid when you see 4-5 in a row from the same poster slamming a thread to get rid of it because they are unhappy with the subject matter.

I think this debranding is going to be a topic for discussion for quite some time since it just isn't adding up and there is a lot of loyalty to the NEX brand. There will be continuous comparisons to NEX quality as Sony releases the replacements. I was holding out for a second body with the 20.1 mp sensor but became unsure about it yesterday while reading up on the A58 which was the first to use it. I thought it was a new design on the A3000 but realized it had been around since early 2013. What else do we know about this sensor version since it will probably be used in the NEX successors, excecpt N7S? Is it really going to be better than the 16.1 mp one used in the NEX-3N/5/6? Sony must have figured out how to make the 20.1 mp sensor cheaply seeing the price of the A3000. With the Nikon D3300 entry level APS-C DSLR coming out with the 24.2mp sensor is Sony staying competitive? I'm also curious if the D3300 is using the same sensor as the NEX-7.

Hi Pat

The 20MP sensor seems to be decent enough, it's the rest of the A58 which is such a disappointment and in someways even a downgrade on the A37 (plastic lens mount!).  We still need to see if the A5000 maintains the same build quality as the NEX-3N, in spite of its insane $100 price rise, or if there is a build-quality drop like there was on the A58

NEX-5T and NEX-6 seem to be much better value, and closeout NEX-5R, NEX-7 and NEX-3N even more so

I don't see how the $600 launch price of the A5000 is competive for these specs, and makes no sense after the 'cut-price' A3000 and A7/r releases.  But what happens when this camera doesn't sell...  do Sony blame it all internally on the RF styling?
