DSLR - NEX is it just me?

Ok I must admit I can't find a camera that ticks all the boxes, but maybe it's just me?

I have had DSLR's for years, 5Dmk2, 7D etc and sold them for a variety of reasons too big and heavy and if I am honest just a bit of a techno geek.

I wanted the NEX7 but became impatient and bought the A77, what a mistake! Great camera but again heavy ish and with lens not far off the 5D etc.

I tried the NEX5 n but it just doesn't have the photographic dials to hand without digging into the menu! Also the lens option seems a little limited and using the fill in flash was Fiddly.

I do take lots of photos, mainly landscape and street etc and use CS5 for PP

Has anyone gone from DSLR and either enjoyed it or had issues with the ergonomics?

Maybe I should have given the 5n a few weeks rather than days!
