I have m43 cams (G1, GH2 and EPl5). To me, they are better balanced than the NEX6. Especially the lens choice and the lens size. Yes, sure...sporters jumping up and down in an arena and seagulls gliding by. Look at my gallery, they are there (sport not, not interested but it is all the same). NEX6 is pretty bad in AF tracking inspite of PDAF.  Panasonic Gh3 is better. But you won't catch me saying they xan do it all. Nikon D4 can do it all for instance.

As demonstrated to you, NEX-system is flexible enough to match DSLR/DSLT performance if the photographer chooses to.

No, it has not been demonstrated.

You can sit here and parrot that it cannot, but proof is in the pudding, some of it already delivered to you.

THAT'S the 'proof' you're providing?!

BTW, no, D4 isn't even close to defining versatility to me.

Why? Because it's a jack of all trades and a master of a few as well? Wasn't that YOUR criteria for 'versatile'?

There were pictures made of sports, birds in flight etc with Manual focussed camera's. But it would be quite a stretch to say the cam can do it just like any other cam. Mirrorless camera's are getting better and better, but currently they cannot do it all.

Like what?

Like top tier focus tracking, like high quality native glass from 14mm to 200mm at f/2.8, like quality ergonomics, like a 100% optical viewfinder, like... so many things. Whereas the only disadvantage that something like a D4 has is size/weight/cost, only the latter of which is really is issue for any normal adult.
