For me it's sort of like buying an iPhone 5 a few months before you know the iPhone 5S will be released. Personally speaking I wouldn't do it (but it's just a matter of preference and what you want to do).

There's one big difference: Apple tries to maintain the price of the old model right till it's replaced by a newer, better one, but the NEX-7 is already much cheaper now than when it came out, and is probably much cheaper than its replacement will be , when it arrives. So, effectively, the current reduced price of the -7 takes into account the product cycle.
