If size is the issue, then save even more money, and a little bit more weight, with the A65. The Sigma 19mm f2.8 is 45.7mm in length the LA-EA2 is 44mm in length, so the comparison in this link gives a pretty good idea of the size of the Nex-7 with LA-EA2 in comparison to the A65.

What is the gain with going with the Nex-7 that would drive this?

Thank you

Very legit points but it boils down to how the NEX7 handles and feels to me.  I'm not comfortable with the a77 or a65; that and I love the elegant NEX7 interface.

And I always have the option of using a native e-mount lens when a suitable one becomes available. Unfortunately the solution proposed is not inexpensive.
