Re: Where is all the love for the earlier NEX'?

I still believe that the NEX size and the APS-C format are more adequate to the way I shoot.

Once in my life I took a DSLR with me on vacation and hated it every minute for its size and weight.

After I bought the NEX-5N, the hassle is gone. As a result, I take a lot more pictures and better ones.

When a manufacturer launches a camera that has the same concept with better IQ, it is expected that us pixel peepers go for it. But I don't see the A7 as an upgrade for my NEX. It is almost the same size as a small DSLR, and the lenses are not smallish either. So the portability is compromised.

I would trade loosing a bit of low light capability for the weight and size advantage of the NEX without a doubt. And there is also the $$$ factor that cannot be oversighted.
