I wouldn't either

I sold my A900, and I would have purchased an X-Pro1 if I wanted an OVF.

Here are the specs for that viewfinder:
• 0.37x and 0.6x magnifications
• Framelines cover approx 90% captured area

That's not going to compete with even the A700, let alone the A900. In that situation, I'd go for the pure EVF as well and get the NEX-7 - which you also did

It's not like I'm against EVFs, but at this point in time, the best OVFs are still better. If Sony made a full framer with OVF and main sensor live view via the rear LCD, that would be the best of all worlds. I rarely use the rear LCD on my NEX-7 - even for video - but it's a great help in some situations, of course.

In any case, I don't consider a full frame NEX realistic, because the lenses would have to be A-mount, so there'll never be the need to choose.
