Have you swapped your DSLR for a NEX 6 or 7?

Yes, and then had to buy another dslr!

I hoped I'd be able to swap my 5D mkII kit for a NEX 7 setup but in the end I found that for situations where I need fast reliable AF (mainly paid portraiture of small children) I just could not rely on the AF of the NEX 7.  I tried out a LA-EA2 but that didn't work out either because of shutter lag with the Sony 35mm f1.8 lens.  So in the end I had to buy a Nikon D7000 and a couple of short primes to cover this specific need.  I would also stick with the D7000 if I ever wanted to go to long lenses again, but for everything else, the NEX 7 is perfect.
