This is my second NEX-7, I liked my first one enough that I bought a second to keep as backup. When they first came out, there was an issue of the number of quality lenses for it, now from ultra wide-angle to long telephoto, there are enough quality lense

Great little, lightweight camera
I grew up in the film era with all metal Canons and lenses and a lot of controls on the outside of the cameras. I originally bought the NEX-5 when it frst came out and thought it was a great camera to get back into photography. I was dissapointed with the lack of controls outside of the menu system and the lack of a grip. When the NEX-7 came out it was an easy decision to upgrade. And it had an eye level viewer and a grip. The only two problems I have with the Sony Alpha cameras is that the form factor is still too small and light. I have small adult hands (maybe Asians have smaller hands) and even I have problems holding the camera and I'm always accidently touching something, like the movie button, which has been disabled but still gives me an error message right in the middle of taking a shot. Memo to Sony: I KNOW THE MOVIE BUTTON HAS BEEN DISABLED. I'M NOT STUPID. Secondly, I've realized that the weight of the camera/lens helps one hold the camera steady and compose the shot (IMHO), even with IS. If I was a tourist or out all day shooting without taking the camera in and out of a bag, I'd definitely buy a half leather case to protect the camera and help with gripping it. Unless Sony increases the size and weight, I doubt that the NEX series will ever become a professional, working camera. I guess that's why they have the Alpha series. I gave a Yes recommendation, but with reservations.

A used REX 7 in good condition
good handling; lots of E mount lenses available; great image quality; great for travel, events, family & still object photography; better as a camera than a video recorder. needs 2+ backup batteries for extended shooting; a learning curve to understand a

I do a lot of backpacking and this is a great lightweight full featured camera. Most of my photography is with macro and therefore manual controls are key. The camera has the functionality of a full DSLR (I am switching over from the Nikon D90), plus many

Ready for more lenses!
I wanted a lighter, less pretentious camera than an DSLR for travel. This is it.

Sony Alpha NEX-7
I use the NEX-7 to stand in for my SLR when I don't want the bulk and weight of the bigger camera. If does the job perfectly. Shutter and viewfinder lag make it not suitable for wildlife photography. I like the 10 frames per second shooting when getting i

Excellent Camera, Excellent Results
Easy access to controls separates this mirror-less camera from the others I have considered. I frequently do manual settings and that makes the NEX 7 ideal for me. I like the 24 megapixel resolution also. I have four lenses and two NEX 7 bodis, the Nex7 h

Best in class
The Nex-7 is the last stop before a pro-sumer (professional consumer) level system. If you are already a pro looking for a smaller and extremely smart flexible in-hand system then this is your mark. Worth every penny! Loads of fun.

Love this camera!
No matter how fast I take shots, the pictures come out really great. The pictures are so clear that you would see the finer details of the subject. I have been wanting to buy a DSLR for myself but I don't like the bulk and the weight of it. NEX-7 is small, light and so convenient to use.

Everything else is excellent except for the video button that keeps getting accidentally activated (without a possibility of disabling it). I have run down my battery and filled up my memory card because of it. Please SONY provide a firmware update to dis

Sony Alpha NEX-7 (Body only)
Crutchfield has collected 2 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 5.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "I am very much a novice photographer, but even I can appreciate the flexibility, and convenience of this camera's layout. The picture quality is on par with cameras WAY more expensive, and the style, you just can't stop looking at it and thinking, "This is what state of the art is all about." I have to say the only real downside to this camera is the limited selection of lenses at this point, but I'm still glad I bought it, it can only get better from here."

Sony Alpha NEX-7 (body only)
THE GOOD: The Sony Alpha NEX-7 delivers excellent raw photo and solid video quality in a package thats beautifully and functionally designed, yet relatively compact. Though expensive for an essentially nonprofessional camera, it doesnt seem overpriced. THE BAD: As with many competing products, the cameras JPEG algorithms need some optimization, some aspects of operation feel a little laggy, and...

Sony NEX-7 Review
The Sony NEX-7 is a new compact system camera with a long list of photographer-friendly features. Offering a 24.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, 1080p HD movies, high-res 3 inch tilting screen, 10fps burst shooting, built-in electronic viewfinder and pop-up flash, the NEX-7 seems to be on paper at least a very exciting proposition. Read our full Sony NEX-7 review, complete with sample JPEGs, RAW...

Sony Alpha NEX-7 Review
Making quite a leap for compact system cameras both in terms of image quality and camera control, the Sony NEX-7 really impressed us. We used words like "astonishing" and "amazing" when describing image quality, both printed and onscreen, because the NEX-7's images are even sharper than the A77's. And for an APS-C sensor to approach the quality of the Nikon D3X, well, that is saying something....
