Hello Friends,

Iam a professional photographer from Chennai,India and am at present using the Nikon D800 with Nikon lenses for my professional shoots.Iam looking for a lightweight backup body that has good resolution,AF and good Handling.The NEX-7 has been on my mind for sometime and am unable to decide whether it will be a good business decision.I like the compact body and Sweep Panorama features but i dont have a clear idea about the Autofocus and the Image quality.Kindly guide me.This will be my first mirrorless camera.

Thanks in advance


I have a D700 with many lenses. The NEX-7 compliments my FF system amazingly well. I use it for street photography and long exposure, low ISO photography.

It's actually really good at low-light photography too.

I don't buy into the high megapixel/bad low light argument.

NEX- 7 is a great camera.

If you're a pro, then you will make good use of any camera.
