I hope this NEX 7 rumor is not true!

    Latest rumor says its main competitor will be the GH2. That doesn't sound like it will be a rangefinder, which would be very disappointing to me. sonyalpharumors | Home

    That would be an odd path to take as the A33/A55 seem to cover that market segment niche already at a similar price point.

    My very short want list on the NEX would be in-body IBIS - then I could stop thinking about getting an Olympus m43 again :)

    I don't think you'll get IBIS. They already made that decision, and the kit lens has IS. I think it's the wrong decision, but it seems that ship has sailed.

    I also agreen that a GH2 NEX7 would be what -- a very slightly smaller a55 but without IBIS?? What's the point. That doesn't make any sense.
