OMD really match NEX APS-C sensor with 40% smaller size? Anyone have both?

Hi, namacro, what you said is the key. Just for cropping the best mirrorless title go to NEX 7
The real interesting feature of OMD is weather sealing

Will we ever see a weather seal NEX or just dreaming?

If a sensor 40% smaller can be roughly equal to NEX-5N sensor, how much better can it be if the same advancement is getting into APS-C

Just thinking about that is exciting

Giant steps have always been around the corner Jeff. Never seen newer cameras go backward. They can all progress for sure. With the OMD which is excellent IMO, I would guess it can't crop near as much as the NEX-7. So for most thats not important, but for some of us, it is. So that would tell me something about the sensor and IQ.

I shoot with m4/3 (Panny G2) and one thing has changed the way I shoot. Focus peaking for MF lenses with the NEX. No focus peaking, no camera sale here :). Personally IBIS and OIS don't interest me, only IQ.

Besides which, I would wait and see exactly what a Panasonic GH3 might offer. If the OMD IQ is that good with that sensor, a GH3 with a newer sensor could be very interesting Jeff.

The future is good mate and it always will be. I have no issue with DR with both m4/3 or NEX to be honest. Mind you, I don't shoot high ISO either.

All the best Jeff and its good for all of us.

Danny.

Worry about the image that comes out of the box, rather than the box itself.
