Sitting here and wondering if I should upgrade my Nex 5 to a Nex 7 or an A65, and I am getting an urge to complain a bit.

I want the Nex 7, but the lack of lenses is a major pain. I really want image stabilization in all my lenses, so adapters is not an answer.

If Sony had put stabilization in the Nex body I could have just complemented with alpha lenses. Why did Sony not do this?? Making the body smaller is to me a very weird argument, since most people use a lense when shooting. Thus, it doesn't matter for size if the stabilization is in the body or in the lens. Sigh.

Stupid decision not to use IBIS in the Nex!

So I guess next you will be deciding what I take and how to take it, is that right

Totally daft. My lenses and camera are on a tripod so IS is a waste of time. How long have you been using a camera ??.

Maybe you should post this in the Canon and Nikon DSLR forums and see how you get on :). I will be watching for your posts in there, ha.

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.
