Gavin, Glasgow Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Solidly built and has a feeling of quality. Quick (unique?) access to control parameters using Tri navi dials. Great image quality, which is limited, in the main, only by the quality of lens used.
Great manual focus aids which facilitate the use of practically any lens (adapters freely available). The NEX7 reminds me of all the things I enjoyed about old style SLR photography without the frustrations and limitations.
I feel Sony were the model for Apple's standards for design and this product is proof IMHO.
The development of the NEW Alpha 7/7r camera's shows that Sony are worth investing in. My existing lenses will work with the new Alpha 7's in crop mode but for now I'll be content to stick to using a NEX 7 body and upgrade later. It's a great value standby, camera due to the recent price drop.
Bad points:
It doesn't perform the tea ceremony.

Alan, Oldland Common Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact and well built - magnesium body. When used with vintage glass and the appropriate adapter this combination can produce outstanding results. The camera feels well balanced and suitably weighty. (Adding a Gariz leather case increases the quality feel and gives a little bit more to hang on to if you have large mits) The Sony sensor is well regarded and does not disappoint. A perfect alternative for when my A77 is not required and great for street photography.
Bad points:
The kit lens is good but not exceptional.

Phil, Haywards Heath Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Tons of facilities and customisable controls. Excellent picture quality. Automatics do better than manual a lot of the time - so 'snapping' looks good.
The electronic VF means no more putting glasses on to take a picture.
No mirror means a pocketable 'SLR'.
Bad points:
SD holder broke three weeks after the guarantee was up. Sony want £170 to fix and local repair shop was not allowed to buy the part. As Memory Stick was OK, decided to buy them instead as cheaper than fixing.
Video on SD cards causes overheating - so another good reason to change to MS.
Some more lenses would be nice.
