It cannot do Sony any harm. A really slick but relaxed presentation which will sell the camera more than the official marketing when it comes out. I like the way bounce flash is approved but at your own risk which is re-assuring.

The A6000 sounds really good and I wonder if Sony wished they had never brought out the Nex7 as it may create a group who understandably will not welcome the new camera, but would be perfectly happy if the Nex6 was all there ever had been.

I think you are misundertanding the emotions here

The A6000 is an exciting camera and I think most people (everybody?) are very happy that it has been released and hope it will be a success.  The 'traditional' NEX body shape of the new camera is particularly welcome

Those looking for a NEX-7 replacement want it *in addition* to the A6000

Personally I am interested by the A6000, but am hoping it has a digital level as I have got very used to using this on my NEX-5R.  I want to see a NEX-7 as it would indicate a real commitment by Sony to keeping APS-C going at the higher-end, otherwise there is a risk that they will progressively move FF down the product range until it is only at entry level, and eventually maybe not even there...  thus making the current APS-C lens range (some examples of which are rather expensive) obsolete
