I hope it doesn't fit in my pocket

Do you realize the NEX-7 is not intended to fit a pocket? I'm sure, the advertising of the NEX-7 will be something like "Professional performance on a small package". Not as NEX-3/5/C3 with the "Professional Quality in your pocket" motto.

Right on! I don't understand the obsession with all NEX cameras fitting in the pocket. Nobody tries to fit a canon 7d in the pocket. NEX is not just about small cameras, it's reinventing the DSLR and being small is almost a side effect of that. I wouldn't be surprised if the NEX 7 is the top quality aps-c camera in the market when it comes out! Hope to sell my Canon 7d and my 35 f/2 and 85 f/1.8 and replace it with a smaller, lighter and higher quality camera - The Sony NEX 7 with the 24 f/1.8 and 50 f/1.8.

It better be smaller than my 7d but it's okay if it doesnt' fit in my pocket...
