What advantage would the DP1 Merrill give me over the Nex-7 for Landscape shots? I am really wanting a dedicated Landscape Camera for a trip coming up...

I don't view a single DPx camera as a solution for landscapes. About 40% of my landscapes are shot with medium telephoto lenses, while another 40% with wide-angle (21-28 AOV equivalent on 35mm camera). The rest are somewhere in between.

However, if all you need is the 28mm AOV of the DM1M, it's a tough camera to beat. Which is why I have one. And why I'll probably pick up the DP3M when it's out.

As far as the NEX-7 - I think I'd rather have the Fuji X-Pro1 or X-E1.
