How about the loss of stabilisation when using non-NEX lenses on a NEX body? I have an a900 and NEX 5N, and I do sometimes miss stabilisation when using my 'standard' Sony lenses on the NEX with the adaptor. I'm looking at stepping up to the NEX 7 when it finally stays in the stores where I live, but I'm not sure it will come to replace my a900.

Stabilization is a strange beast.

I got tack-sharp results from my old Sony R1 at 120mm focal length equivalent in the 1/30 second shutter speed range. Granted, I'm a pretty damn good target shooter and can hold my hands very steady. But the lack of mirror and shutter movement can make a pretty enormous difference too. Not to gainsay stabilization though as I have gotten some tack sharp images from my Alpha 65 at 120mm and 1/10 second (although definitely hit and miss there).
