I have 2 cameras. The A65 and now the E-M5. I played both the NEX cameras and found their lenses to be as large as my A65 lenses but not as good. I am very impressed with the OMD lenses though. I will also tell you that the 24MP vs. 16MP resolution advantage almost never comes into play. Instead the color, contrast and other factors matter a lot more. My A65 with the 35mm F/1.8 lens and IBIS is capable of great images. The OMD with IBIS and the 20mm F/1.7 pancake also amazes everyone. As for the NEX lenses, we are finding out what many in the past have said. They are average. Sigma comes along and the Sony users find them to be better. On the other hand, the M43 users trying the same lenses consider them mediocre at best. In a few more years with Tamron and Sigma's help, Sony will have a better lens selection.

The Sony 24, 50, Sigma 19 and 30 are all great.

What size do you print on a regular basis?
