Summary: I couldn't swing this camera a few years ago and bought a NEX-5N instead. That turned out to be a wonderful camera which I re-tasked for my wife after she used on a recent trip on the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad - the absolutely loved it.
Summary: This is the camera that introduced me to using old manual focus lenses! With focus peaking and magnification, focusing is easy and accurate. The Tri-Nav is wonderful (I wish the a6000 had it).
Summary: Good mid sized camera. Pictures are amazing and regularly out do DSLR cameras. I would buy it many times over. Also doubles as a pretty extraordinary near professional; video camera. Only waning is that on video mode it can start to over heat after 10-15 min of straight video.
Summary: The NEX-7 is an excellent camera. It has most of the functions of the larger Sony cameras. Example: a very good 24MP sensor, P-A-S-M modes available, Panorama, peaking color, white balance, DRO-HDR, ISO up to 16,000, several drive modes, shoots JPG and RAW+JPG, most of the top-line functions.
wonderful mirrorless camera, use any lens you like!

Summary: my favorite compact camera (so far). I use this as my daily carry, with the SEL1650PZ lens. I also use the LA-EA1 and LA-EA2 adapters with my classic Minolta AF glass. PRO: -ISO performance is incredible. Minimal color noise even at ISO 3200. ISO goes way higher than I expected.
