I was about to buy a Nex-7 along with a Zeiss 24mm 1.8 (I'm not planning to use other lenses). This camera might change my mind. I'll wait to see sample shots and low light performance.
A Nex-7 body + Zeiss 24mm is about 2500$, for a few more bucks you get FF and a lighter system. Excellent for backpacking. Only thing, too bad the Nex 5 optional EVF is not compatible with this camera... and 179$ for the lens hood is simply too much. I don't mind the price of the camera itself, while not being a bargain it's not over-expensive either (predicting a superb IQ), but the accessories' prices are a ridiculous.
Looking forward to reading the reviews.
