If IQ is your primary concern, Fuji wins hands down.

Fuji's video is totally unusable, though.

I'd say it depends on the usage. At low ISO or in bright contrasty situations, I'd lean towards the NEX-7. In lower-light hand held situation maybe the Fuji may be a better choice. Too bad DxOMArk has yet to release the Fuji sensor results but you can at least use the Imaging Resource comparometer at http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM NEX7hSLI00100NR2D.JPG vs XPRO1hSLI00100NR3D.JPG. Unfortunately these are out of camera JPGs, couldn't find a comparison shot in RAW.

For instance, compare the ISO100 still life shots, especially detail in the pink cloth:

I'm sure you could find some high ISO shots showing the reverse in comparative quality. For landscape work I'd lean towards the NEX-7 in this instance.
