    I know this is a rumor website, but I´ve been reading it for years and it´s right 95% of the time (the guy has good sources):

    I looks like Sony will release a camera between the NEX5N and the NEX7 on the next Photokina (next month). It is supposed to have a viewfinder.
    Now it´s dreaming time wish list time: 24mp, in body IS (very difficult), higher bitrate on video mode, mic input with audio controls, heat problem under control. And then the usual even better high iso, AF, etc.

    (SR5) The NEX-6 is coming! The “mini-NEX-7″ :) | sonyalpharumors

    And, having used the articulated EVF on the 5N I'm in no hurry to go back to a fixed viewfinder. That tilt function is very useful. If I did more hand held stuff it wouldn't matter much, but I do a lot of low angle tripod work and the tilting EVF is the cat's meow. And I have the Pentax K20 for hand held stuff anyway. ;)

    If it's a NEX, therefore E-mount, no way will it have IBS (IBIS?). Sony isn't going to make all the OSS lenses worthless.

    • I hope the "supposed" NEX-6 has a dial knobs like the NEX-7...
    • I hope the EVF has a higher "refresh" rate. I don't mind if the pixel count on the EVF is only moderate. It's the image lag (when I'm panning, or when the subject is moving) that gives me nausea - which is why I gave up and sold my 5N EVF.

    (Interesting timing regarding this rumour. Right at the heels of the Canon EOS-M announcement. Hmmmmmm...)

    NEX-5N was announced over a year ago - time for Sony to crank out yet another body...;)
