5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing performance, discreet family cam for photos and videos, April 19, 2012
By 
This review is from: Sony NEX-7 24.3 MP Compact Interchangeable Lens Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Camera)
I've been shooting with the Nex-7 for about two months now and it is easily in the top 3 cameras I've ever shot in terms of image quality. The only other two that beat it are full frame cameras so it's not a fair comparison.

That said, I usually only shoot at the 12MP setting and it still delivers detailed images. For times I want to heavily crop or shooting in a challenging lighting situation I'll shoot RAW. RAW definitely shows what this camera can do. Mind boggling.

The best part about this high powered image machine is that it is equally an amazing video camera. The 18-55mm kit lens focuses fast and SILENTLY and is optically stabilized for smoother video.

The part that seals the deal for me is the size. This is great for family shots where having a discreet looking camera puts people at ease. It doesn't look like a paparazzi SLR. It's very elegant.

You can get 24MP cameras for cheaper in the bulkier SLR style, but those have very few lenses that are silent for video and the ones that are out there are bigger and heavier than the cameras themselves. Pay a bit extra to get the best.
