Sony needs to work on model numbers

This looks like a great replacement for the NEX-5.  The specs look amazing, and the flip up screen is a great feature. I am eager to see one in person. 


Speaking of the NEX-5, Sony has long had an issue with model numbers.  They also make an ENG style camera called the NX5, which I happen to own.  When customers ask which camera they use, it gets confusing.  Oddly, 5100 happens to be a model number of a very popular Nikon DSLR.  


Maybe Sony should get some help naming these things?
