Though a bit off topic, I do wish Sony would take as much interest in releasing new lenses as they do new bodies...sigh...

I'm wondering if the number of NEX bodies will exceed the E-mounts lenses for all of them...

I'm in the same position re the Nex 7, I have delayed my purchase for the last 2 months.

I'm not yet sure about Sony and how they feel about the Nex as a camera system. They keep on bringing out new cameras like they were P&S cameras but not many good lenses, and some of those have bad quality control.

The Nex 7 has several problems with the software that people have asked to be fixed. Sony have now had 3 or 4 upgrages to the A77 but have not bothered to do any upgrades for the Nex 7.

Do they want to keep it with problems expecting we will all wish to upgrade to the 7N when they bring it out?

At the moment I don't NEED to spend £1000 on a camera plus the 18200 and the Sigma 30 and the 50f18 to get a system. When will Sony show a proper lens roadmap specifying zoom range, and/or prime length and f stop. They seem to have delayed the G class zoom by a year

Now that Olympus are selling a camera that is better in some ways than the 7 I will continue to hang onto my money as see if Sony ups their game.
