its uo to you - - I have a nex-5 and an nex-7 and can tell you I would never take a bolt on EVF over the NEX-7. Sure it may tilt up, but it is also is vulnerable, adds size in a weird way and when attached you cant use flash.

having both an EVF and flash is very important to me I like shooting portraits and people in bright light and when I do so I love fill flash to even things out - add to this that in bright light is when I most need the EVF thus I want both flash and EVF at the same time

The NEX-7 rocks

I'm in a bit of a quandary.

I recently had a play around with a Nex7, and rather liked it.

Now, i'm not sure whether to buy the EVF and SEL50F18 (which i'd planned to do) to go with my 5N or should i sell the 5N (with kit lens, as i rarely use it) and add the proceeds of the sale to the money i have for EVF and 50mm and buy a Nex7 body?
