If you want to know more, go ready my Sony NEX-7 Review.

Some of you may have already seen some of this, but if not, once inside, here are some of the questions & answers you can jump to!

– How are you able to get the quality of images you are getting with such a tiny camera?

– What was the impetus behind you deciding to try switching to the NEX?

– Why go with the NEX / APS-C size sensor? Why not go down to the Micro Four Thirds format with a slightly smaller sensor but with a better lens selection?

– What about photographers with clients? Is the perception of carrying a big camera vs small camera an issue?

– Bokeh…Talk about the differences there.

– What are the quality trade-offs?

– Durability…what are some of the differences there?

– I’ve noticed a different look to your edits since you’ve started using the mirrorless system. Is this intended or just the way your photos have come naturally?

– Did you find yourself shooting more with the NEX once the firmware update for auto bracketing was released?

– Trey, in your article, you stated you use the NEX6 for day to day and the NEX7 for your epic landscapes. Do you find the NEX7’s slow focus the cause for that?

– How do you carry your gear?

– Going back to your Nikons, with companies releasing adapters for lenses for other brands, do you see yourself grabbing a Nikon to NEX speedbooster to use your lenses on your NEX system?

– In your article you mentioned apps on the Sony. Do the new Android cameras like the recently announced Samsung NX1000 excite you in that department?

– Parting thoughts. Regarding advanced amateur photographers, what would you advise them if they’ve already spent thousands on DSLR gear or not , should they switch to mirrorless?

and lastly but not leastly:

– What would you rather photograph – Tennis or Water Polo?
