    Photo Rumors today posted some new leaked images of the Sony NEX-7:

    sony-nex-7-mirrorless. sony-nex-7-evil. sony-nex-7-mirrorless-camera. sony-nex-71. sony-nex-camera.

    They also re-posted the same leaked specifications which have been shared there and elsewhere on prior occasions. The specs do not refer to the presence of an articulated LCD, and none of the images show one either. Seems like a strange omission from a camera which otherwise is poised to be an absolute show of force on both the still and video fronts.

    It looks better everyday, but it's strange it's never shown from the back... an articulated LCD would be most welcome...

    I love my articulated LCD on my NEX 5; however maybe if there isn't one on the new NEX-7 perhaps Sony thought that by including a viewfinder (I'm old fashioned) there wouldn't be any need for a articulated LCD; however I think that if it has been omitted they will have lost many customers who would have up-graded.

    I'm a viewfinder guy myself, but I agree with you Penny, keeping both the viewfinder and articulated screen would be great.

    Wow, that is a beautiful camera. I can't wait to see the first previews and reviews of it to see how it does in action.

    Maybe it's there, but with the detailed specifications having leaked out, I would expect it to be listed...

    Still, in four days all will be revealed!

    I'm still not loving the look/shape/appearance, but maybe it will look better in person, or at least in a person's hands. It's tough to judge from just product shots sometimes. That integrated EVF (with peaking??) will be something to see!

    The better include a proximity sensor to switch between LCD and EVF. If you are going to do it, then you might as well do it right!

    It's a new site, and I've been mostly working on the forums but will have an RSS for the front page soon!

    As for ARW files, Photoshop supports ARW files for all but the newest cameras, and those should be supported before long via Adobe Camera Raw update.

    I think it would look better with the top 1/3 of the camera being silver and the bottom 2/3 black (kind of like the fujifilm x100).. but i'm not complaining :)
