Yes, Sold NEX-7 for RX1

I replaced the NEX-7 with an RX1, and the output from the FF sensor is in a whole different league. I hung on to the Zeiss E 24/1.8 until I had a clearer idea how the RX1's lens performed. I don't have the NEX-7 for comparison shots anymore, but from examining similar photos I get the impression that the RX1's lens is sharper: it's a really top notch lens.

So I will also sell the E 24/1.8, but I may pick up a cheap NEX-5N to complement the RX1. I'll use this to shoot ultra wide and moderate tele shots. Most of the time, the RX1's 35mm suit me just fine, but occasionally I need a wider range of focal lengths.

As to the FF NEX-9, I doubt that the overall kit including a prime can ever be as compact as the fully integrated design of the RX1. If that's important to you.

Ok think of the following:

Now you have the Nex-7
You swap it for the RX-1
Sony announces the NEX-9 FF

Would you wan't to swap your RX-1 back for a NEX-9? If so, think hard because you won;t sell the RX-1 that fast. Better stick with your 7 this year and only buy the rx-1 if you have the money with out selling your Nex-7 stuff
Atleast, that is what I would do
