I went to Best Buy today hoping to get an NEX-3 on clearance. I asked the store salesperson if they were selling the now discontinued NEX-3 and NEX-5 at a reduced price, and he indicated to me that he hadn't heard they were discontinued and that in fact they couldn't keep them in stock and had just received a large new supply of both cameras. When I mentioned the new C3 and 5N, has asked me to wait while he checked the model numbers. Sure enough, all of the new stock were C3 and 5N models. I asked if he had the 5N in silver, and he said no, only black. Bought one, took it home, and it's silver, just like I wanted . Charging now!
