Sample pics. Definitely sharper than the NEX-6 at 100%. Not sure about the NEX-7, but the high ISO should blow it away (NEX-6 is already noticeably better).

Um... wow. This is the shot that blew me away:

ISO 12800, and yet looks about as usable as ISO 800 is on my NEX-5! That's just my seat-of-the-pants analysis based on one image... in some conditions the NEX-5 @ISO1600 might also approach this, but it's crystal clear this is WORLDS better than my NEX-5 @3200. The prospect of being able to boost my ISO by 4-8X and still get results this good is making me dizzy!

The samples at ISO25600, on the other hand, are IMHO firmly in the only-use-if-desperate category.
