The main advantage of the 850 is IS with all lenses & overall better colour & DR but you would miss live view & the NEXs small sixe & relatively low weight. The OVF is better optically but does not reflect parameter changes such as EV compensation or WB. The menu on the 850 together with joystick navigation is vastly superior to that of the 7. The OVF is always live whereas the 7 requires switching on f or evaluaing scenes & the 850 scores hands down on focussing speed & accuracy which greatly benefits action shooting.

IF I had to drop one camera it would be the 7 , I would have to keep the 900. The A99 would combine the best features of both cameras but is too exensive for me to change right now.
