This is why I bought the NEX-7 instead of NEX-6 last month. For the controls. I use aperture mode 90% of the time so the top dial is pretty wasted for me. I would have liked better high ISO and the PDAF focusing, but the controls were a show stopper for me.
Maybe you should have looked a little closer before you made that choice. On the NEX-6, the thumb dial underneath the mode knob shifts function depending on whether it's in Aperture priority or Shutter priority mode. In aperture mode, it adjusts the aperture. In shutter mode, it adjusts the shutter speed. The problem that photoomaha had would only happen in Manual mode. Even then, with a reasonably gentle touch, the problem he had would not occur. Having had all three bodies, I would rank them as follows:
The NEX-7 obviously wins the resolution ranking but do you really need 24 MP when you suffer with high ISO noise and problems with wide angle edge color issues?
IMO, the NEX-7 is overrated and suffers because Sony let the marketing department convince them that a big resolution number was more important than high ISO performance. If Sony comes out with a a FF NEX and the high ISO performance isn't comparable with cameras like the Canon 6D or Pentax K-5, they will be making a huge mistake and they won't sell one to me.
