Seriously though, people are arguing about glorified Point and Shoots with interchangeable lenses. Buy the camera that suits your needs and get out there to take some photos. Sony has changed the game in this area, but remember that it is still the photographer that takes the pictures, not the camera.

I don't know if I misread your intentions here, but the NEX is NOT a gloried point and shoot. This has a APS sensor and Sony isn't a late comer to photography like Samsung. This could be the iPhone of photography.

It is definitely a glorified point and shoot. It doesn't matter that it has a big sensor size, the minimalistic approach (lack of dedicated controls), friendly user interface, and the compact body speaks for itself. I don't think it's necessarily bad, in fact, I think Sony has done very well to stir up the M4/3 camp. I can't wait to see what the other competitors would do next.
