NX200/210 or NEX-7 again!

Hi, I'm new to dpreview, and hoping to learn more about photography by upgrading from a compact.

I'd like great image quality but don't want the size/weight of a full DSLR kit.. so I've boiled it down to an NX200/210 or an NEX-7. I'll start with a kit lens and upgrade as I learn more.

I've read plenty about them, and I know this question has been brought up many times, but I have a specific worry about each camera, and wonder if anyone can help tip the balance..

I believe the NX200 has very poor RAW write times - what are user's experiences of this? Can I make do with JPG? Will the NX210 be any better?

On the other hand, the NEX-7 has a poor user interface and a steep learning curve - I know the basics of aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc - but will this camera hinder or help me learn more?

Any thoughts would be illuminating!

Many thanks,

Samsung NX200 Samsung NX210 Sony Alpha NEX-7
