Re: Don't forget about u4/3 as they can use Leica lenses with adapters too!

I chose the nex because the m4/3 has a 2x crop factor. Unless you like tele all the time it is not the best format. It kills all the wide angle. Even on the aps-c you'll need to buy the 35mm or 28 just to get near 50mm fov. But they are a lot more and you get deeper dof. (I want shallow dof for a lot of my shots).

It is a big disappointment that no one else would make a ff mirrorless.

Olympus has some nice m4/3 cameras with I.B.I.S. in built image stabalization for less money that the Sony cameras. Using the cheap $15 Leica M to m4/3 and or the Leica M39 screw mount to m4/3 adapters you can use all your lenses on Olympus and Panasonic m4'3 cameras.

The new Olympus OMD E-M5 is a really brillant camera, I think much better than Sony's efforts.
