I bought a Nex7 as a carry camera. The images were beautiful. My canon DSLRs and Leica film cameras stayed at home.

My canon has made it out of the house 3 times since getting the 7 this time last year.

My Contax G sat in a closet, I loved it too much to sell it. Now I can use its superb optics on my Nex7.

The Nex series are small and "carryable." I don't see the word "fun" on this this forum. They're fun to use. Don't underestimate fun.

I agree completely, I'm having a blast using legacy manual lenses, the better they are the easier it is to produce stunning results. I really like my FD SSC 35/2.8 tilt shift, it is simply awesome, the only down side is it's big, the Contax G lenses are tiny and just as good.
