I hope they have magnification as a manual focusing aid like on the Nex-5. I bought a lot of manual focusing lenses and really used it but I am worried. The nex-7 is reported (mylensDB.com) to have a manual focusing aid that Sony calls the peaking function. This colors the edges when the object is in focus. I hope, really hope this is not in place of the magnification which on the Nex-5 is 7x and 14x. It is great if we had both but we will see.

This issue is not a deal breaker since there are other features that make the upgrade worthwhile for me. I already ordered my Nex-7 from Amazon.
