I currently have a Nikon D90 and it is just too much weight and size. Most of my photography is hiking, backpacking and mountain climbing. I am looking at selling the D90 and the Sony Nex-7 caught my eye. Currently I am looking at the Nex-7, Olympus Om-d E-M5 & Panasonic GH2. Though these models are on the heavy side they are still 8 ounces lighter than the D90.

Test drove the Nex-5n and the Olympus E-PL3. At first I wrote off the sony due to the available lens but when I started using it- it was impressive. A viewfinder is a must for me (never use the LCD on the D90) so naturally I am looking at the nex-7. Any thoughts on the viewfinder in high contrast situations? One reviewer said it was terrible under these conditions.

What do you think of the lens selection? This seems to be the biggest con against the NEX line.
