Everybody wants a... lens, until they see the price and size of it.

Look at the latest e-mount lenses. The prices are all over $1000 and the sizes are often bigger than their DLSR FF counterparts.

Who want to put a larger lens on a small body making is almost the same size as DSLR that has a working focus system? Why not get the DSLR that can focus and that has real grip? You will even save money do those insane Sony lens prices.

Sony needs to go back to the APS size lenses and prices.

My NEX-7...provides a couple of very useful manual focusing aids that actually do help me to focus the camera. If I had a DSLR, I would not...

You would not need focus aids. You could focus in low light quickly and you could focus on moving objects. Sony does offer an adapter that fixes the focus deficiencies.

There is a difference between missing "every now and then" and "ALWAYS".  Can you imagine a sports photographer trying to make a living with an A7?  Let's see how many E-mount cameras are on the sidelines this Sunday.

I am sure with some manual focus aids they would feel better.
