I've written on the subject of functionality vs. cameras as status symbols.

Where, a diary entry, on a napkin, blog?

I've written on heart surgery, quantum physics and sex with Gilda Radner. We're pretty awesome.

The NEX-6 seems to me to have a metal top cap....

It does, Helen. You are correct.

It's got metal top and bottom plates. The NEX 6 does not. The front plate makes a noise like metal, but I suspect it is plastic. The NEX 6 is pretty much all plastic, except for the frame.

Where are you getting this from.

I own both cameras and am not blind.

In your next set of 'falutin musings, I would suggest making a more conscientious attempt at getting the materials straight.

Unless Sony is using metal plastic, this is metal, that's the top plate, and it's on my NEX-6.

And a capture from the tear down youtube:

Funny, I suppose I should have clarified that it was another post in this forum. I once read a book as well. The NEX 6 top plate looked like moulded polycarboate, but gave it another look and tapped it with a fingernail and, by gosh, you are right. The NEX 6 top plate is metallic

P.S. did you take your camera apart just for me?
