You should see what professional race car drivers can do with ordinary cars.  I think there may be something to the idea that an expert can wring the most out of a gadget, camera included.

As for the iPhone, it's not bad.  I'll use it if it's the only camera handy.

So, do you think that either the Nex or Fuji is better than the other?

Yeah, i should also see what the same professional race car driver can do with the real race car too.

No argument there, if the iphone is my only camera, I would also use it without any hesitation, it's so much better to have a camera than no camera at all, but I also know which one to pick between my D800E, 1DS3,  NEX 7 and iphone if I have a assignment to cover tomorrow, the NEX and iphone is normally not the one, but that's only my personal choice, I am sure there is some talent photographers can do a equally great or even better job with their iphone than their 1Ds and D800 type of cameras.

While on the topic of being off topic, there are occasions when carrying something like a D800 or 1Ds would be utter nuisance. An example would be shooting at an NBA game not from the sidelines but from the stands, where your neighbor might not enjoy the sight of your camera and a big lens pulled up on your face. And you may also realize that a 5-6 lb system wasn't a great idea without a monopod/tripod, much less after a few hours of walk around town.

While I was shooting away happily with my NEX-3 on my lap AND watching the game. The dark spot in the lower left corner is a person sitting in front of me.
