Sony NEX 5N or Olympus EP-3?

Hello all,

I am currently using point-n-shoot/ digital Canon camera and it now comes to the point I want to improve the image quality e.g. sharper image, lower noise, nicer color, better quality in low light and wider angle when taking the landscape picture. However, I am not ready to suddenly move up to the dSLR type which is big, heavy and required technical knowledge which I have very limited at the moment.

Therefore, I'm thinking of starting with sth lighter & less complicated than the dSLR, yet provide fine image quality, before moving up to sth advanced like dSLR in the future.

My thoughts are on Sony NEX 5N based on the review here. Hwr, a good friend of mine also provided good feedback on Olympus EP-3 as well so I'm now hesitating.

Which one should I go for? Other camera recommendation is also welcome My budget is somewhere around 1,000 USD, + - 5%.

Many thanks in advance.
