Re: D90 to NEX-7 opinion

Are you shooting jpegs or raw? Are you planning on shooting any fast moving objects? I sold my D90 late last year and got nex 5n. Heard good things about the sensor and just wanted a smaller and lighter gear. However, very soon after getting the camera I realized that I made a mistake. I mainly photograph my family members, especially my 2 year old. The AF was noticeably slower than the nikon and because of that I missed many shots. The auto WB had way too much yellow. The skin tones were horrible. I sold the nex and got the D7000 and it was like being back home. As a second camera I think that it's great but in no way can it replace a DSLR.
