So I stumbled across a store that actually had the NEX 7 in stock. They also had a the Zeiss 24mm. So I've taken the plunge.
My initial thoughts;
EVF is not as good as SLR - although I'm getting use to it.
Both the camera and the lens are outstanding build quality.
Auto focus on video is COOL ... although I suspect everyone will be doing that this year.
The panorama modes are neat, but I can get better results from photoshop.
IQ is probably not as high as I would like but at this stage I'm blaming the monkey behind the lens.
It is small and REALLY packs a punch.. amazing stats for its' size.
I'm really looking forward to more E mount lenses being relaxed this year. I may also invest in the the A mount adapter as the range of specific lenses, ie. telephoto is much better.
I'll get some pics up when I'm happy with them.
