Hi all, this will be my last thread in the NEX forum. I have just sold my NEX 7 and all the gear I had for it. I love the comfort of the small size and quality of the build, tri-navi and other features but the low light capabilities were killing me. At ISO 400, there would be considerable amount of noise in the photos and PP took too much time and effort.

I am moving over Canon as I have already started using their glass. One question for you would be, which camera body to choose? 60d, 7d, 650d or maybe another suggestion?

None of those if you want low light ability. Either you need to go for a full frame body (personally I suspect a 5D II or Nikon D700 are the best DSLRs that won't break the bank for that) or you need to look at the Fuji X cameras which have similar ISO performance to the D700 (but have other issues you can find out about on the Fuji Forum).

If you still had some glass or adaptors I would suggest you try out the NEX-6. In fact, rather than suggest you buy a huge DSLR with worse ISO performance than your NEX (canon APS-C) I would suggest going to a camera store and playing with the NEX-6 and Fuji XE-1.
