In the middle ground between DSLRs and point-and-shoot lies a vast plain filled with all manner of tweener cameras, in all variants of shape, size, price, and quality. Until now, no one has nailed the whole package, but so far the smartest middle ground — smaller body and price, but without losing too much quality or manual control — has been Sony's NEX line.

The NEX-5N and NEX-C3 are excellent cameras, with big sensors in small bodies, but the NEX-7 is the flagship member of the line. The $1,349 shooter has a DSLR-sized, 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, a built-in electronic viewfinder, a tilting LCD, 1080p video recording, and a solid set of manual controls. It's built to run with the big dogs, and priced like it too — can it keep up? And could you actually buy the NEX-7 instead of a DSLR?
