We are seeing seismic shift in camera business.

A77 may be great camera but is likely last of a kind. Something like making the best horse carriages in 1930s after Ford started making mass production cars. Consider Contax G - superb camera that came when its whole segment went into demise.

NEX-7 is going to be first of a kind. I am so eager to see what Sony do on the E-mount it is world of possibilities.

The above is a bit strong perhaps DSLR will live on but it will no longer be the best quality digital camera for amateur. DSLR will remain for BIF, journalists, paparazzi, sport, studio. DSLR will ultimately loose in tourist, amateur, creative, family photography.
