5n vs. 7, other than the EVF and MP difference are there any real major

differences that account for almost double the price? I love viewfinders and will be hard pressed to feel comfortable without one on a camera that I'll probably be using more than my D300, but that price difference is hard to swallow unless there are some real noticable advantages of one over the other. I'm old school and a non-EVF camera would probably grow on me but it will take a while.

Also, I've read that the low light performance is better on the 5n, so is the 16mp sensor actually a better all around sensor than the one in the NEX7? I do love the look of the NEX7 though, it is a beautiful looking bit of hardware.
