    The Elan 7NE has eye controled focus and the 7N does not. ECF tracks the
    position of the pupil to determine which focus point to activate.

    Pssst, he said between the 7E and the 7NE, they both have eye controlled
    focus.

    As far as I can tell, the major difference is that the 7N/NE have ETT-L II,
    which lets the camera control flash strength based on distance from the
    subject, something Minolta and Nikon have done for some time.

  5. Yes, and they also have a (very welcome) light in the LCD on the top of the
    camera.

    The one thing I didn't like about my A2 is its lack of backlighting in the
    LCD.

    I just bought a 7ne and retired my old 7e, so the 7NE has...
    - E-TTL II (I haven't tested that feature yet)
    - Backlit LCD display (surprisingly useful in low light)
    - Noticably quicker auto-focus
    - Better tracking of moving objects*

    * when using my 100-400L lens with the 7E the lens would "jump" into focus
    when tracking a moving object. Under the same conditions with the 7NE, the
    focus shifts smoothly (continuously), at first I didn't think it was working.

    If you don't have the battery pack (BP-300), get one! It makes a huge
    difference when shooting in portait format (plus you can use "AA" batteries).

    Thanks, I appreciate all the help. I think I will definitely go with the
    7NE.
