NEX7 or e-p3 or gh2?
Nov 1, 2011

I'm looking to get into a smaller system and would like a check on my logic.

My first must have is a UWA zoom, starting at about 15-18 mm (35 mm equivalent); and my second must have is a do-all zoom, 28-280 mm (35 mm equivalent).
I need IS and AF because I miss too many shots without them.
I also need good video performance.

I looked at the NEX7 specs, using another makers lens, but I wouldn't get IS or AF.
The Pana gh2 with their 7-14 mm doesn't have IS.
The Oly e-p3 with IBIS and their 9-18 mm looks like the only choice.

The situation may change next year. Pana and Sony could come out with IBIS, but not likely. Pana probably wouldn't come out with another UWA with lens IS. Sony could come out with a UWA with lens IS, not likely, but even so it may not be up to the standards of glass from other makers, according to past reviews on their other optics. Oly could improve their sensor, more likely, making this an even better choice and one I would wait for or trade for.
