How could 24 MP make "wide angle life harder"? In fact, wide angles are the lenses wheee you need every pixel - because usually you print a landscape 3x2 meters, not a portrait. Of course the NEX-7s sensor has some problems with legacy wide angle lenses, but with such awesome options available (Sony 10-18mm OSS, Zeiss 12mm 2.8, ...) it's not a huge problem.Not nuts. If you're focusing on legacies, you only ever need shutter priority and you're set. Tri-navi dials aren't much use if you're using the lens, and the 24 megapixels makes high ISO and wide angle life harder. Plus you get a smaller body. I would however, recommend with the money saved, that you try out the 5N EVF. It is special, and trumps the fixed EVF in my opinion
Maybe yes, maybe no. Mine and several others I know of color shift/vignette almost as badly as the 7 does. Others show no signs of it. Luck of the draw I suppose. Easily dealt with in post, but still a PITA since it isn't uniform across the 5N bodies.I've never thought about replacing the 7 but the scorching deals on closeout 5Ns do get my attention. I've got my eye on the Voigtlander 15mm and from my readings I gather that while the 7 can work OK with it, the 5N has significantly less color cast issues. So I could see a 5N or 5R eventually for 2nd/backup/wide-angle/touchscreen use.
