looks like a nice cam. I didn't find info on the body construction. (I may be just missing it).. All plastic, or some metal, like the NEX7? Anyone know?

According to one review I read, the body is polycarbonate, not magnesium like the 7. I've read so many reviews that I can't remember which one mentioned it.

Will this having problems with the wide-angle M lenses like the NEX-7?

just wonder if they fixed the overheating sensor when filming. I think sony is on the right track with the new products. And finally saying goodbye to that old maxxum-era shoe.
