Sony's new NEX-7 holds the "top of the line" spot in their growing line of powerful EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras. Sharing many of the high-end features found on the new SLT-A77, the NEX-7 boasts Sony's new 24.3-megapixel APS-C "Exmor R" HD CMOS sensor, along with the next generation of their powerful BIONZ processor. This combination helps the NEX-7 offer impressive shooting performance, including burst shooting at up to 10fps at full 24-megapixel resolution.

On top of the high-quality 3.0-inch Xtra Fine LCD screen (921k dots + TruBlack technology) found on the back, the NEX-7 is the first NEX model to offer a built-in EVF. This is no ordinary EVF however, rather an extremely cool OLED display that gives you incredible detail and clarity. Another first on a NEX camera, the NEX-7 boasts a built-in, pop-up flash unit. This slick camera embodies a rangefinder look and feel, that many are sure to love; I know I do!
