FUJI X100S or NEX7N or ...?

After selling my NEX5N 2 months ago because I was bored by video overheat and lack of EVF, I am on the market again.

My first attempt was to buy the Nikon D5200 or D7100 because of past with a D40 some years ago.

But I realized how much I liked to preview the result on an EVF before shooting, given it has a nice quality.

The NEX7 was an option I gave up, because of always this overheat issue and low light weakness compared to NEX5N.

Actually a NEX5N with an integrated EVF and without heat issue would have been THE camera for me.

I tried the NEX6 several days but I was not impressed for some reasons.

I also tried the FUJI X100 and I was amazed by the IQ, but depressed by the quirks of the AF, despite the recent firmware updates.

Now I am expecting much more from the next generation from both, NEX7N and FUJI X100S.

IQ for stills, great and bright viewfinder, nice video.

Although I do not doubt that NEX7N should provide a significant update of NEX7, I am wondering what FUJI X100S will bring to X100 videography level.

My main requirement would be IQ, as I would like to shoot on weddings, with sufficient AF performance and reasonable portability, that would exclude bulk of DSLRs.

Any clue or comments are welcome.
