What could they realistically do for a 7-replacement right now? Weather sealing?

what can they do???

  • [a] tighten up their OSPDAF routines,

Focal plane PDAF will take its time to mature and be a full replacement for mirrors. Until then, mirror remains your solution.

And If it were to take couple of years, what would be your take if Sony chooses to keep NEX-7 replacement out until then?

absolutely nothing, zero, nil, zilch = not interested!! As it is right now I'm pretty happy with the N-calssic, period.

But... only for exclusively MF captures = AF on any of the MILCs I've tried is just not good enough, and Sony's MILCs are leaders in the "not good enough" category as far as I'm concerned.

So, until that happens and [fingers crossed] my N7 will not break down, get stolen, perishes in a fire or a flood, etc. I'll have a comfort to wait.

However, it is not exactly an easy wait, as I do estimate that about 30-40% of all photo ops I encounter are being lost on a daily basis due to the lack of adequate AF'ing on N7, hence the longing for the N7 mk-II as specified above!!

But EVEN it the big S. will finally deliver such truly efficient and proficient OSPDAF, they can very easily spoil it all for me by electing to pack such a N7 mk-II into either a a3k-like or A7-like package (if only we stay within easy confines of what have been on show as of now) = again not interested in either a midget-DSLR or a false-pentaprism humps, they are both way too huge in comparison to the N7-classic shape !!
