The sexy EVF corner of the NEX-7 (Click here to preorder).
Let’s start from a fact. The NEX-7 gets more preorders than the A77 at Amazon (Click here to see the rankings…with both NEX-7 preorder options inside the top 20!). There was not one single day the A77 was preordered more than the NEX-7! The curious thing about that is: Sony definitely focused their marketing campaign mainly on the A77. De facto there are plenty of A77 previews and image samples around the web. You can find RAW image samples, youtube videos, previews and even first full ISO tests and reviews! On the opposite there are absolutely ZERO reviews, image samples or NEX-7 video samples about the NEX-7. And it’s a bit surprising that most of the photo websites are really enthusiast about the NEX-7 (without having it even fully tested it!):
Imaging Resource (Click here) wrote about the NEX-7: “We obviously can’t conclude a whole lot from a camera that we’ve only seen in barely-functional prototype form, but what we’ve seen looks tremendously impressive. We do have a good idea of what the NEX-7′s image quality will be like,d though, because it uses the same 24.3 megapixel sensor and advanced Bionz processor that we’ve already shot a fair number of test images with in the A77. Sony claims that the A77′s image quality “approaches that of full-frame cameras”, and we found that indeed to be the case when we compared image samples against those from Sony’s earlier A900 full-frame SLR. That same level of imaging prowess in the NEX-7′s super-compact body can’t help but be a huge hit.”
ePhotozine (Click here) said: “The NEX-7 is an exciting product that gives manual controls, dials, and buttons, on the camera. These are physical, real buttons, that you can press and feel. Even more than this they are customisable to give you the control you want. Without doubt this is the highest specification mirrorless camera available yet.“.
I summed up some of the key features the reviewer liked. And here is the question for you (you can select more answers!):
Thansk for your answers! And pelase drop me a message if you find some NEX-7 review! Thanks! UPDATE: The sum of the votes is not 100%. Example, percentage like 34% near one of the answers means that 34% of all voters selected that specific answer.
