you are also wrong. as m43 matures i'll be able to use my 45mm 1.8 and eventual 75mm 1.8 on the bodies as they get better and better. with rx100 you have to replace the whole thing and there is no guarantee the next version will have an equivalent or better lens.

When m43 sensors start packing 24+ MP, I'm wondering if the current glass will keep up. I hear that the D800's sensor needs the very best glass to get the most out of it.

As it is, if I was not investing in a system and want to limit my expenses to $500 to $700, I like high end P&S like the RX100 or G1X. If I'm going to invest $2000 or more, I like a decent interchangeable lens system.

My problem with the NEX and EOS-M is the size and prices of the lens. Buy up the set I would want to work with, and I'd be staring at something that is closer in size to my DSLR setup than I would have wanted.
