    Reading all these reviews is really pushing my expectations from this camera upwards. Specially the article from the online photographer placing the NEX-7 above the Leica S2 as the "most desirable camera on the planet", that's a very bold statement comparing the NEX-7 to a $40,000 camera.

    I may not have a NEX 7 but I have got to admit that I have been bowled over by my NEX-C3. I appreciate all my cameras and each has their place but the NEX with its combination of stellar IQ and (in my case) ability to use my old MF glass has been an absolute blast to use. I look forward to more of it...and I can definitely see a NEX7 or whatever follows it sitting in my camera bag at some point. Now, if only a lens like the Panasonic 14 or 20 came out for the NEX...that would be cool.

    I would not pay 40 k, having the nex, I hope to save more money for these months, I can't wait for the nex,like a kid waiting for a candy, commentaries and publications are increasing, an ideal camera.

    When I first laid my eyes on her, i was impressed with the best EVF I had ever seen.Thailand floods,I did take a quick descicion by nex5n but I do not regret, I am very happy with it.

    Personally,
    The NEX-7 is not my most desireable camera....but hey, I'm only one guy! ;)
    That being said, your post above reflects a perception (albeit a perception by me) that NEX products aren't appreciated/respected as they should be. When their long term e-Mount lenses start coming online, I think that more individuals will give Sony a serious look.

    While the NEX-7 is very cool, exciting and innovative, thats a bold statement to make.

    I just had to respond to this old thread since I am now shooting with this exact combination. All bought used recently to save some money. It is still an expensive kit but all of it together cost me far less than the new Sony RX-1. I think the 50mm lens in particular is an under appreciated lens. It has a great character and it is optically stabilized.

    A few requisite samples:

    That 50 is one I have to get. Well, the 24 also but that's hard on the pocketbook.
