Does Anybody Really Like The NEX-7 User interface?

My wife has totally glommed onto my NEX-6 and I'm now able to buy a new camera. I'd be happy with a new "6" but maybe a NEX-7 would be cool too. I like the idea of a 24 MP sensor and metal body, but I wonder about the user interface. Specifically the two totally unmarked, smooth rotating dials on the top of the camera.

I've never held a NEX-7 in my hands but the user interface just doesn't look good to me. Please tell me why or how I'm wrong.

What if I want to change from Shutter Priority to Aperture Priority? Do I really have to look at the LCD to see what the dials are doing? I really can't articulate my concerns any better than this but I hope you understand what I'm trying to ask.
