Re: a6000 magnesium alloy? Where is it?

Found my post with the links

Well people are pretty sure a6000 is (at least partially) metal because of a Sony promo video saying it is. Users/owners opinions vary greatly on their conclusion for the body material. I questioned the Sony community page about this and while they didn't respond directly they have since edited the video to remove the references to it being magnesium alloy.

You can see the original video here http://youtu.be/FAyEJzoDb9c?t=6m14s where they mention it being a magnesium alloy body at 6:29 and again 6:38.

and here is the new "official" version where you can hear the new and rather awkward editing http://youtu.be/yWUHp8F8m1g?t=4m30s . Fairly certain this was changed after I asked because I rewatched it just before posting my question to make sure the claim was made.

Here is where I asked about it. http://community.sony.com/t5/Alpha-NEX-Cameras/a6000-body-shell-material/m-p/323998#U323998

I found it disappointing but only because of their original claims.  If they never said anything it never would have bothered me.
