Review by Digital Photography School
Quality: the camera displayed exceptionally good image quality and sharpness, along with an enjoyable easy operator interface.
Why you’d buy the NEX-7: access to E-mount lenses, Carl Zeiss and (via an adaptor) Sony A-mount optics.
Why you wouldn’t: you prefer external control of exposure modes; with lens attached the camera is not pocketable; pricey.
A significant camera that could shoot right up there with most DSLRs, but is as easy to use as a snapshot camera.
