Default NEX-7 Question

Looking into getting a NEX-7 for the wife to replace her Canon T1i system. Couple of questions about the NEX-7; how is the battery life and are the controls easy to set? Looking at the pictures here the IQ seems to be right up there with her T1i, so that not a concern just wondering about ease of use.

Thanks,
Craig

I've A55/NEX5/NEX7 and am very satisfied with all - best (my opinion) is NEX7. I also have some Canons, good cameras, but I love NEX more.
Battery life is okay

original battery € 77 (1080 mAh) ... 350 pictures, one afternoon, at evening 0%
Chinese battery € 7 (incl. ship., 1600 mAh) ... detto, but at evening 40% full :-)

Good to hear, so two or three batteries will last for all day running around town taking pictures.

Thanks,
Craig

Caution! Not all batteries work with NEX7 (and NEX5N)

1. + 3. + 4. are okay with NEX5 and NEX7, but 2nd battery only works with NEX5

As I said the wife likes brand name stuff, so that means I'm married and have been paying for years.
