From the image examples i have seen the 5n looks superb for IQ even with the std kit lens. I would stick with the 5n's 16Mp and save a bunch of cash!!Based on the comparison tool over at Imaging Resource (and that is my only basis at this point) It looks like the 7 is just about equal with the 5N in high ISO and just as good if not better at low ISO. So that leaves me asking, "Is the extra resolution worth the extra file size and post processing overhead of 24mp?" The camera looks like a dream to control, a real photographers tool which drives me crazy because I want that body with the lower mp sensor of the 5N!
