In a future Nex-7 - would you like the EVF on top (A7 style)?

I mentioned this in another thread, but the A7 borrows heavily from the RX-1, and not from the Nex-7.

The reason for the EVF to move top-side is the (much) larger LCD screen in the back.

See the side-by-side in this comparison: Camera size - RX-1 versus Nex-7 - view backsides

Personally, I'd still vote for a future Nex-7 with the smaller LCD and smaller body ...

Assuming that Sony will bring out a Nex-7 successor, would you like it to have the larger LCD, alike the RX-1 and A7, or would you be happy with the current layout?

I am personally biased, I would prefer the Nex-7 layout as it currently is, but I can see the benefits of going to the RX-1/A7 style. It most likely would mean a detachable EVF (more $$$), I think.

Having the 5N with detachable EVF and the Nex-6/7 with fixed EVF (in-body), I find that the 5N takes more space in the camera bag than the 6/7, and I expect that the experience for the A7 will be similar.

For this reason, I vote for a future Nex-7 very much alike the lines of the current Nex-7, and not to be merged into an A7 look with an APS-C sensor inside.

What is your opinion?
