Is this the Sony NEX-7 and is it the answer to life the universe and everything?


Originally from sonyalpharumors this is (possibly!) an image of the Sony NEX-7 fitted with a Zeiss 24mm f/1.8.

This is the runoured spec.

NEX-7
24.3 Exmor HD sensor
100-16,000 ISO
1200 zone metering
1920×1080 60p/60i/24p AVCHD 2.0 (28Mbit/s) video recording
3 million dot XGA OLED viewfinder
3inch 921k TruBlack LCD display (touchscreen)
10 fps
20ms startup time
Built-in flash
New universal hot shoe
Battery life for over 400 shots
Magnesium alloy body

There are also rumours about a leaf shutter and it being pitched as a "competitor" to the Fuji X100. 

So - small, light, monstrous MP count, built in viewfinder and flash, fast, and not quite as hideously ugly as the rest of the NEX range. Oh and a fast Zeiss prime. It apparently also has all sorts of video goodies too.

So where do I put my name down?

If Sony are apparently in the process of preparing to release a pair of cameras, this and the A77 which has equally (rumoured) mind boggling specs., then surely they are going to ensure world camera domination for some time to come.

If the above is true, then I really wouldn't need anything else. 

I can but hope.
