Can't you borrow one from somewhere to try it out?

I may try that, although difficult with retailers.

I prefer the viewfinder in the nex7 to ALL the viewfinders in the shop, including 1000d, 550d, nikon d700.

Interesting.

The screen is equal to or better than the olympus. Higher res (at least it was compared to the older pens, not sure now) and yes it is glossy, = better sharpness. And in sun it's better to use the evf anyway.

How can you complain that the screen is too small? How can that make any logical sense? You buy a small camera and complain the screen is too small?

Although its a bit difficult to compare if you look a these two images of the back of the Sony and the back of the Olympus you can see what I mean. The Olympus, is also small, but it has a bigger clearer screen.

So no, to most of your questions.

But go and try one. Jessops.

And if you are going to buy one, digital rev, ebay, £960.

Thank you, but I think I'd have to pay 25 % tax on Hong Kong imports? Isn't that right?

If you buy the right one from digital rev, you won't have to pay tax (it should say clearly on the auction).

The screen for the pen is of a lower resolution 614,000 dots compared to 900k, but a bit bigger (because the sony is a 16:9, pen 3:2)
