O.k....o.k. For 1500 dollar/ euro I am in ! Why no small EVF like in NEX 7 in such an unbelieveble first and only replacement of my HEXAR AF 35mm 2.0 !

With a fixed prime lens, an optical VF would do, whether on the body or via the hot shoe. With NEX-7, an EVF becomes a necessity considering you could put any number of focal lengths on it.

Still, an integrated VF would be nicer, but Sony may be trying to minimize body size, or the idea that hotshoe mounted view finder may be closer and more practical (and in-line) with the lens, than something much farther (that we see with Leica M9, for example).

With EVF, this is a non-issue (it can be placed anywhere).
