(SR4) An NEX-7 hands-on report and NEX-5N info

There are two rumors coming from Asia and from sources I know well.

1) Hong Kong Sonysdf (Click here to read the english translation).

According to the source the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 has a nice Bokeh but corner sharpness wide open is not on very top high level. The NEX-7 feels larger than the Leica M9! It is also rather heavy, whilst it feels extremely solid in hands and is well built. It has direct and professional controls;

UPDATE: I got this info from one of my sources in Hong Kong but I now saw it has been posted at RiceHigh a couple of hours before I posted it (the post was scheduled while I was working). So here is the link to Ricehigh.

2) Thailand Fotorelax (Click here to read the google english translation).

The NEX-5N has a “Capacitive Touch Screen“.
