This camera is currently ranked at #62 of the top camera sales ranking in Japan.
On August 24 2011, Sony announced the high-end 24.3 Megpaixels NEX-7 and 16.1 Megapixels NEX-5N mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras. The NEX-7 camera manages to incorporate many of the features from SLT-A77 into a body only barely larger than the existing NEX models. It features a 24.3 Megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor and 2.4M dot XGA OLED electronic viewfinder with a magnesium alloy body, a pop-up flash and Alpha hot shoe. The viewfinder can provide approximately 100 percent frame coverage, as well as on-screen grid lines, various shooting parameters and a level gauge. It can support AVCHD Progressive (Ver. 2.0) Full HD movies captures at 60p/24p frame rates and it also comes with a 3-inch Xtra Fine LCD display that can be angled up to 90-degrees up or 45-degrees down for easy viewing in any shooting position.

Sony Alpha NEX-7 Camera Reviews Roundup
|VisualScienceLab: "While I know I can get great files out of smaller cameras I also know that bigger batteries and bigger platforms with faster focusing can be an aid to getting quality work done on long days with fidgety subjects. That's why I used Canons big cameras and Nikons big camera in the past. But over time there's a process of distillation that I can feel happening and the Sony Nex 7 was the first ultimate shot across the co..." - Nov 05 2012 More »|
|AdmiringLight: "The NEX-7 is a very fine camera, and for many will be the ideal Compact System Camera. I think that due to the APS-C sized sensor, excellent EVF with focus peaking and small size, it's the perfect camera for those looking to use adapted manual focus lenses, such as Leica rangefinder lenses or manual focus SLR lenses like Nikon F, Canon FD and Minolta MD lenses. Image quality is outstanding and the camera yield..." - Nov 04 2012 More »|
|Fstoppers: "These cameras are for those willing to carry around just a little extra weight for the benefit of far superior photos to that of your iPhone -- let's face it, there's only so much a couple-millimeter sensor can do. The NEX-7 shouldn't disappoint in terms of image quality. And its menu and button layout will never drive you crazy -- it's all done quite well (I'll give you some not-so-good examples later this month)...." - Oct 28 2012 More »|
|pdn: "Overall image quality was excellent. Colors were luscious but not oversaturated, dynamic range was impressive and while using the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8, which converts to approximately a 36mm lens on the NEX-7 because of the APS-C sensor's 1.5x magnification (or "crop") factor, I got pro-level sharp centers and blurred backgrounds making this a very decent portrait setup. In short, when paired with the right le..." - Aug 15 2012 More »|

- Jun 09 2013 Perhaps you may want to think twice......, David K Scherrer
I come from a commercial and artistic photography background. I really thought this would be a great system to fill the gap that was left by cameras like to Lica many years ago. That is, small, silent and very hight res. imagery. Perhaps I could put aside my full CCD size camera for a while. But alas, there is still some work to be done with the Nex-7. Image quality is v...

Exceptional… Not much to say…. An exceptional camera overall… I am not professional photographer but do spend a lot of time taking all kind of pictures. Easy to use and good quality, like I say, an exceptional camera overall…...
- May 25 2013 OMG !!, V. Crofoot
Don't be fooled by those who say negative things about this camera... it's truly amazing! I do professional work with it all the time. I had a Canon T1i, then T2i, then a 7D. I liked all of them but they don't compare to this little beauty. The 24.3mp beats the 18.1mp on the Canons.. and the small body makes it much easier to 'grab on the way out the door'. I get much more use out of...
- May 22 2013 Outstanding camera, Bob in Houston
I got tired several year ago of carrying around heavy camera bags loaded down with SLRs and lenses and decided to go for a high end point and shoot digital camera., None that I tried met my expectatons so when the small Sony NEX 3 came out I gave it a try. It was a nice camera but the LCD screen was almost useless in bright sunlight. When the NEX 7, with a viewfinder,...
