I love my NEX 7....it replaces my NEX 5N after I discovered that I couldn't live without a viewfinder for some of my shooting, particularly with long lenses. The 7 is my travel camera. Having said that, I still use my Canon S100 when I need something I can slip in my pocket.

Despite how much I like my NEX 7, my go-to camera is still my Canon 7D.

Can't beat the ergonomics, speed of focussing and all-round utility. It's just too big to take everywhere when I travel. If I replace it the only candidate is a 5D mkIII, and even then I might keep the 7D for reach.

Much as I like the NEX 7, I have a hard time justifying it when it is bracketed by two good cameras like the S100 and 7D......especially when I start collecting even more lenses to go with it!

A bad case of GAS!
