What is the body material of the NEX-7?
« on: December 13, 2011, 02:19:17 pm »
This a comment for this page on the website
The specs list on dxomark contradicts the manufacturer's claims.

The (German) Sony web page says the NEX 7 has a "magnesium body", whereas dxomark describes the camera material as "Metal top plate, Polycarbonate".

Which one is correct?

According to DPR

"The NEX-7's build quality is excellent - the metal-shelled body feels solid with no flexing or creaks, and the handgrip is covered with a thick rubberized coating"

So it's metal with rubberized covered handgrip.
