NEX-6 vs E-PL5
Oct 19, 2012

Are you looking for a small and convenient compact camera with the best IQ and features and willing to pay up to $1000?

I had thought E-PL5 was the answer for me and almost ordered one, but now we have the NEX-6, which is actually smaller and lighter, as well as cheaper when compared to an equivalentE-PL5 kit.  

And this NEX kit provides numerous other significant advantages besides the built-in EVF and flash.  Have a look at the details:

Assuming that test results show the NEX-6 and 16-50mm combination has a decent IQ (and the early samples suggest it does), then there seems little competition for it, from M43 or from anyone.
