AFAIK, the EVF on the NEX-7 is the same as the one on the NEX-5N. The EVF can be had for $243, the 5N for $599, the NEX-7 for $1199. So you get the extra knobs and functions, a flash shoe and a bigger sensor for your $357 difference over the 5N+EVF. You lose the touch screen as well. And the estimated price is simply a guess.

The NEX-6 supposedly has a newer same-size sensor , another knob, a flash and hot shoe and a flip-out screen. It's just as easy to see the NEX-6 as an enhanced 5N as a defeatured NEX-7. It makes no sense to me to offer an EVF with worse specifications than a lower model like the 5N. I think it was designed by the "build to a price point and throw logic out the window" method. I DO hope they did something to the menu system.

Finally! Someone that gets it!

Having said that, I think I'll want one.
