Sony Nex 7 or Canon 60d

Hi all.

I have both the new Sony Nex 7 (for about a month) and the Canon 60d (since summer 2011). Question I'm going crazy over is which to stick with..

Here's the deal.. My intention was to sell off all the Canon gear i got last summer (35L, 70-300L, and 17-55 2.8) and go with the Nex 7 and start building up a nice lens collection for the Sony. That was until my little sister asked me to take photos of her and her friends for their college graduation this past weekend.. I took this opportunity to carry both cameras and try to make a comparison.. During the "shoot", I felt the 60d was an overall better camera, in terms of usability and quality of pics. Of course a lot has to do with the lenses (17-55mm 2.8 on the 60d and the kit lens with the Nex 7). I felt more "pro" with the 60d.

My problem is the size comparison. I went on a trip last December with the 60d. First couple days, used it quite a bit.. 2nd week, used it a little less.. and by the 3rd week I was just over carrying the camera and the lenses I brought along with me.

I'll be going to Switzerland and Spain in a few months and I feel like the Nex 7 would be a lot better for travel than the 60d, but will I regret not having the 60d with me instead? And how about for casual shooting? Parties and events? Outings?


What to do.. what to do..

Sorry for the rambling post..
