Looking at this camera from a m43 (Panasonic GF1) user from 2 years ago, and specially from the last Panasonic presentations.
I am beginning to see a very separated future lines for mirroless market:

- Panasonic and Olympus betting for a proconsumer market comming from high end compact cameras, but looking for more computer corrections on lens and also size reduction vs optical quality (and maybe on future cost reductions).
- Sony betting for a slight overall size reduction and betting for a new system (it seems no more mirror cameras in 10 years), but maintaining optical quality and less software correction (obviously no much size reduction here) so maybe their products will be directed to more professional market (traslucent mirror adaptor is amazing for professionals waiting to leave a heavy bodies for a while)

Really, at this moment, if I have to choose my very first mirroless camera I will go (no doubt) for NEX-7 (will be almost perfect for me with the D7000 or K-5 sensor). I can wait to see the sensor test for production units.

Now my investment on m43 stuff (lenses, flash, underwater case....) is so high that I willing that Panasonic mantain a balance between quality and technology and really waiting for a PRO Panasonic body:D:D:D:D:D:D:D or jejeje is there someone interested on a vey complete m43 equipment?????

What do you think?

I agree that the NEX 7 is looking to set a new standard for these "compact" cameras.

However the price point is a bit heavy. How much is too much for a compact camera? One of the main reasons I initialy bought my NEX was that it was a bit less than a full frame DSLR. I had always been interested in shooting better, but not willing to pay $1000.
