    Hi all,

    There's a good possibility that Sony's new A7 and A7R 35mm full frame mirrorless cameras won't use the "NEX" label but will be E mount interchangeable lens cameras. Hopefully Sony will do the sensible thing and call them NEX cameras, but regardless I think they do belong in the discussion on this site.

    So, in case Sony doesn't call these NEX cameras, I'd like to get your ideas about a replacement name for this site that would include all mirrorless Sony Alpha cameras, or at least the interchangeable lens ones.

    Any ideas?

    Some variation on SonyEMount should work.

    All kinds of emount____.com are pretty much available. Is there anything shorter than emountnation.com that works well? Emountee.com Emountable.com etc.

    Also, do we want a name that includes non-interchangeable lens mirrorless Sonys like the RX1/10/100? Are we sure the full frame lenses are going to use the same mount?

    Yes, FF A7/A7r will use e mount and all e/nex lenses can be used on these FF cameras. Also new e mount a3000 has the alpha sign on it, instead of calling nex. So they might keep the alpha for dslr shape maybe... And we have RX1 FF and RX10/RX100 1" sensors also. So it is getting a little confusing... At least e-mount is here to stay whatever the each series called.

    Is TalkEmount.com catchy/memorable enough? Will new NEX users even know they have an E mount camera?

    Kind of like a Canon forum called TalkEFmount...

    Shorter the better, like mu-43. What about EMTalk/TalkEM/ENation, maybe they are taken?

    They need to know if they are buying extra lenses... Keh used section calls it Sony E System under mirrorless digital section. B&H also call mirrorless systems. Maybe call it E-System?

    Perhaps it might be prudent to wait until Sony makes its official announcement before settling on a new name?

    It's a nice looking design based on the part which is showing, but with the SLR styling, I don't think it's going to be an "NEX".

    Yes, like a3000 it has alpha sign on it. So it looks like dslr shape ones are going to be alpha...

    I bought the URL for emountnation.com. Of the ones we brainstormed, I think the first one was the most distinctive. For short, people can refer to it as EMN.

    Yes, it is coming:) Sony.co.jp published teaser site:
    http://www.sony.jp/ichigan/teaser/

    The video says “We stopped thinking about the way that the camera should be, then we started to see a new way of the camera. A camera, no one ever made”
