Excerpt: This is an insanely good price on the NEX7. I'll probably never bother with the kit lens, but the NEX7 body is a great little thing to toss into the bag with my Leica M Monochrom and/or Nikon Df. My tiny and outstanding Leica 35mm f/2.5 Summarit M will make a fantastic normal lens for this.
Pros: Adaptable To Any Lens, Excellent Evf, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Cons: Fiddly Menuinterface, Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, Short Battery Life
Excerpt: Just got my NEX-7. Be very careful unpacking your new toy. Sony uses very nice looking box, but unfortunately this black look alike velcro covered inner box is a nightmare. The whole camera and lens was covered with tiny black particles from the velcro kind of fabric. You won't be able to see them unless you use reading glasses or eye loop. Clean all the camera and lens BEFORE you do anything else.
Excerpt: This is now my favorite camera having purchased it to replace my Canon DSLR. I love my Canon for many years, but really wanted something smaller with big power to take into the backcountry. This Sony Nex 7 fit the bill. So far I've had the camera for a couple of weeks and haven't put it through all of its paces, but am impressed with its capabilities already. This will be the perfect setup for grab-and-go shoots and more candid photography.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Summary: The quality of the pictures from this camera is top notch. Navigation of the controls is fairly simple. I like the accessibility of camera functions that the two thumbwheels provide. If there is a con, it would have to be the placement of the video record button...have taken many videos unitentionally...which is a nuisance because when you try to take a photo, you have to wait for the video to finish processing - can miss some good shots.
Summary: I'll keep this short and sweet. Image Quality taken in RAW is among the best I've seen. I'm a Pro and use this camera with the Zeiss 24 mm and Sony 50 mm prime for weddings. I post process in Lightroom and the results are phenomenal. The added bonus is the small size and light weight. It beats lugging around a full frame Canon or Nikon all day. My biggest gripe is the lack of dedicated buttons for frequently used features such as Shooting mode, AF selection, ISO, etc...
Summary: I know I will love the camera once I start using it the right way. I like the fact that it came with all the attachments for doing pro work, But its been a long time since I did any camera work .Managing a band these days you have to be very precise in recording and still pictures. I did fined the price to be different from other places. Like around 100.00 dollars, but there was free shipping and no tax.
