Well, I'm several months into this NEX 7 now and I like it more each day I use it which is about the highest compliment I can pay to a camera. My A700 is languishing on a shelf for the most part although once in a while I use it with my 70-300mm G. I missed the OVF at first but I have slowly adapted to the EVF and now truly appreciate its advantages while finding with continued use I have learned to live with the lower contrast in the shadows when viewing. My Zeiss 16-80mm with the LA-EA2 has been on the NEX 7 about 80% of the time but I just bought a used copy of the 18-200mm Sony, the old one, not the the LE. I am hoping this will be the combo that I use for travelling - relatively light compared to carrying the equivalent range for the A700? I am a stickler for quality and maybe the "big" zoom will be too much of a compromise? For those that have this lens ... what has been your experience? Cheers!
