Re: Will a Sony NEX F3 or 5N take pictures the same quality as an entry level DSLR?

I was in your shoes few months ago. I wanted to upgrade from a panny superzoom and looked to the d5100 vs M43 vs NEX. I decided to go for the NEX.

d5100 Pros: greater range of lens choices, third party accessories, physical controls.

d5100 Cons: body size and lens size, weight.

NEX Pro: IQ, size , weight. portability

CON: Price, Lens choice, lens prices. Menu system needs time to get used to but is not bad.

I chose the NEX-5n caused I like to travel light. Because it does not look intimidating, the wife uses also here and there. She does not say "ohh is so big... looks like pro camera..."

I only have 2 lenses and it works for me and my budget. If you have a baby, I will probably go with the NEX as when you travel, lugging that DSLR will be on your way of changing diapers
