NEX-7 or wait? HELP
Jan 4, 2013

I am an NEX-5n shooter at this point and I am looking for a new one (NEX 6/7) as it has the built in EVF.

Here are my questions:

  1. Is the build quality that much better on the 7, being that it is metal vs. plastic?  IMO, why is the 5n in metal but the 6 isn't?..... ridiculous 
  2. Are the photos with the 24mp vs the 16mp that much better?
  3. If I decide to go with the 7 over the 6, should I just hold off to see what comes out in the upcoming months as far as the newest camera is concerned?  If I do, will it be even more expensive than the 7 now?  If so, I will not be interested.
  4. If I keep the lens on my NEX-5n (18-55mm) will that do the job just as well as the new offered lens on the 7?
