Could you folks add or recommend some foto samples? Very nice shots take by NEX´s but wondering could image quality be smilar to this in terms of sharpness and DOF ?

How about these JPEGs with a NEX-7 and $30 Minolta MC Macro Rokkor-X 50mm f/3.5 wide open:

Are these as good as the D800 can do? No. However, they are much better than an APS-C crop from the D800. Of course, the really great thing about the NEX-7 is that there isn't any digital that is close to competitive with it and could have mounted that wonderful and cheap old Rokkor... except maybe the NEX-5N, etc. More lens choice is good, and NEX has more than any other.

At moderate ISOs, the D800 is the only full-frame sensor that clearly beats the APS-C one in the NEX-7. I don't think any other APS-C sensor can match the NEX-7.
