Sony Nex7 Rummor in Photography Gear and Technique Posted August 26, 2011 The NEX 7 looks to be a very exciting camera. I had a chance to shoot the NEX-5 in the Nauticam housing at the Digital Shootout this year, and really loved it. Between the 18-55 with an add-on dioptre and the 16mm pancake with the fisheye adapter, it's a pretty versatile little system. Would love to see some movement from Sigma on new E-mount lenses, especially longer macro options. The achilles heel was the control set, and adding the two additional dials is a masterstroke to solve this. The price point is pretty brutal, but probably to be expected for 24MP 10fps. I really like the Micro 4/3 system, especially for the lens selection, and I'll be really interested to see what becomes of the GF-7. But I have to say, I'm definitely more tempted than ever by the NEX system. Really great that it looks like the NEX-5N is physically identical. Exciting times in the mirrorless world!
