It has OSPDAF AF that NEX-7 can dream of.

worthless unless you only use Sony AF lenses designed for PDAF

It has improved sensor with better high ISO.

no one knows this yet - no one has actually tested it yet

It has better battery life.

again - how do you know this? wouldn't higher procession power actually reduce battery life?

It has Wi-Fi and NFC. It has new much faster BIONZ-X quad core chip with new jpeg engine and selective noise reduction. It has much better price.

The only "downgrade" is EVF (still sharper and cleaner look than one in N6/7) and absence of tri-navi, BUT it has dedicated MR mode on top dial, C1 and C2 buttons, and 7 customizable buttons overall. IMHO it is a no contest with N6/7. Not even close.

we will see where this sensor actually falls when its been actually tested - until then its all just speculation

as to the PDAF - absolutely worthless to me - it won't work with my Sigma 30 or 60 or the 19 I plan on getting and I will not downgrade the sharpness of my lenses just to have faster focus I will never use
