I'm looking at a lot of forums and websites and almost everyone is knocking the NEX system for their lenses. They all say that the lenses aren't great at all. Any merit to that statement? Cause I had been leaning towards the OMD EM5, but then I handled the NEX6 in store today and liked it, plus the fact that its a good $300-$400 cheaper doesn't hurt either But now with this possible lens issue, I'm not sure again lol

Personally, I'm tired of talking about the fanboy-ish nature of many m43ers, their insecurity that APS-C mirrorless competition will make them irrelevant, which then manifests as relentless politicking against other systems (particularly the price-competitive NEXs)... and this now-perpetuated Big Lie that 1) m43 lenses are all great, 2) the NEX lenses all suck, and 3) and there are lots of m43 lenses while there are no NEX lenses.

I think the proof lies in the pudding.

You can look for yourself and see what looks better.  Or conclude that there is no significant difference whatsoever.

Agree on every point. There are psychological issues on m4/3 forum, I call it people with small sensor complex. The myths about m4/3 and other systems are psychological props they need to fend off the feelings of insecurity.

..but they and fuji do have better lenses available - at least you admit that. 

The more that you talk, the more that you show your colors. Better stop while you are behind ....

I agree with the mature Nex posters, m43 posts in this forum are, well, just what they are, pitiful at best.
