Re: Beginner Compact System Camera Dilemma - Help Please.

All the cameras mentioned would be excellent. For me, the answer comes with answering a question or two.

How large do you want the system to be overall? How many native lenses are available?

The Nex is limiting in both areas. The lenses can be quite large, defeating the purpose of a small body, and there are just not that big of a selection yet.

GX1 would be my choice. It is fast; focuses well in low light, and the sensor is plenty capable. Build your lens collection up, and later advance to a newer body, either in Pany or Olympus.
