Hi, if you would have the choice of getting one of these cams which one
would you prefer ???
At the moment I have this "problem" and I really do not know how to
decide.

Hope you could give me some advise...

Here are some PRO of each cam for me.

Pro Nex-5r

  • may be better AF

  • WiFi

  • 16.1 MP ???

  • better low ISO

  • Picture Quality ???

Pro Nex-7

  • Tri Navi

  • EVF & Flash can be used together

  • Size of the Body

  • 24MP (is that really necessary ?)

I like my NEX-7 it cost a bit, but having to do it over again I still would buy it. (Although the Nikon D600 looks interesting to me too.) Unless Sony adds a touch screen LCD, 1/8000 sec shutter, built in wireless flash commander, tele-zoom feature in video (where I can use just the middle 1920x1080 pixels), 10fps with continuous AF, 1/2000 sec native flash snyc, & faster AF (and may other things)...I won't be upgrading my NEX7 any time soon - which is fine with me, there's some glass I want now (10-18, 24/1.8, 35/1.8)
