Does Best Buy or Bestbuy.com ever intend to carry the Sony Alpha NEX-5 model or should I just bite the bullet and shop somewhere else for one? I know Best Buy carries more products as Christmas approaches but I am anxious to purchase as soon as possible. And before it's even suggested, I am not considering the Sony Alpha NEX-3 that is offered by Best Buy because I am interested in the lighter body of the NEX-5, much more comfortable grip of the NEX-5 (I've held one at another store, just trying to stay loyal but Best Buy not carrying this model isn't helping), the AVCHD 1080i recording, as well as just having the "best" model available.

Thanks for inquiring about the Sony NEX-5 micro four thirds camera! You are correct that we are currently not selling this camera, but after reaching out to the business team here at our corporate headquarters I did find out that we are looking into the possibility of adding this camera to our assortment. I wish I had more specific information for you on this, but at this time this is the best I can say.

I too am very excited to see this camera become available in Best Buy.
Also, the Sony a NEX VG10 will be on the market as of September 10, 2010 (according to Sony's website). With the launch of this product will likely come the launch of its 18-200mm lens as an accessory for the NEX cameras. This would be a very nice accessory to add to Best Buy's assortment.

I understand that this particular forum is slow, but after 170-some views, there are only 4 replies in this thread?
Really people, simply post a reply that says, "+1," "I agree," or "count me in." Even just giving kudos to the posts, anything helps!

My husband and I have asked almost weekly at our local Best Buy about when this camera will be available. Oddly enough, I found it for sale at www.bestbuy.ca (Canada). I even sent a tweet to Best Buy asking them what's up with that but I got no response. We have no interest in the Nex-3 after comparing the two in person at a Sony Style store.
