I just say that it's as good as most DSLR's and I don't have to lug around a big ole camera and bag of gear. I'd sacrifice some quality for the convenience, but I don't have to. I go out with friends who bring their nice DSLR's and they have to bring a bag and lug it around all night. I can fit my nex, an extra battery and a ping pong ball flash diffuser in my jacket pocket and at the end of the night take as good if not better pics.

I don't get this reasoning.  Why must people equate DSLRs with having a NEED to always lug around a bag of gear?  Certainly, DSLR users could easily lug just the camera (with a good pair of glass) and an extra battery as well.  If anything, DSLRs still have the legs up in quality of (non-manual) lens.

Also, given the fact that the NEX *is* an ILC, you could also say that NEX users could be lugging around a bag full of gear as well.
