I've stuck with the A7 as I ended up getting it for £500 which was my max budget (originally, despite these naturally stretching :p ), and the lack of a VF doesn't bother me much really.

    Hiya Got a kid due soon, and always wanted to keep pictures, video for posterity or whatever. I'd perhaps like to see pictures printed/framed and would like the depth & low light quality that camera phones don't necessarily cover. Also don't want to flick a grand into Samsung's pocket tbh. A...
