the unthinkable happened - now I want NEX-5F

I got my 5n last August and loved it.
Had Nex 7 on order, also since August and got it just before Xmas.
I was thinking to keep both or to sell NEX5n.

But, I ended up selling NEX-7 and keeping NEX-5n.

Why? Well it was a tough call - NEX-7 is a great camera - but I am very advanced user and still 5n is customized perfectly for my taste while 7s navi was a bit overdesigned. If NEX 7 came with exposure bracketing including 2EV or 3EV steps I might have kept it.

I also realized that I don't need that many pixels (being high-iso shooter) and that I loved 5n's EVF way better than 7's (tilting and positioning for the eye).

I never missed touch screen on 7 though and I don't use it on my 5n (turned it off after few months, too many accidental touches).

Would love 24mp preferably NEX-5n (or NEX 7 would be ok, I guess) Full Frame Body! NEX cropped lenses and few russians, m-rokkors and voigtlanders for FF side.

if we could also have in-body stabilization with tiny size increase - that would be be my dream camera, so bring on NEX 5F!
