This will cause some dillemas to some people deciding as to whether to: which model to purchase, what features are they really after, or if they should wait even further.

Thanks for the NEX6 link RT.

I'm really liking the look of that Mode Dial!!

Hmmm, built-in EVF as well huh... :D

I suppose because I was drawn to the 5N because of it's MF prowess, in the back of my mind I do treat the NEX like a retro MF rangefinder camera. Although I like the 'idea' of the twin programmable dials on the NEX7, what I'm really missing is that one single shutter-speed dial up top (instead of the mode-dial that's pictured).

I almost use my NEX exclusively with legacy glass - I can't get enough of the aesthetics of engraved numbers on the barrel, plus the DOF vernier scale. Every time I turn the aperture ring and feel and hear the mechanical ratchets clicking, I instinctively reach for a shutter-speed dial... that isn't there.

Oh well, I'll settle for something close enough...
