Why don't we just keep on debating on which system is better and skip the whole "ABC's fans are better/more civil than XYZ's fans" thing? Because at the end of the day, fans of any system are the same.

On topic, I chose the NEX-7 because it felt more solid in my hand with the bigger grip and because it just looks sexier (now if the OM-D were to lose that hump on top, it would be a tie).

I like my 5R because it's so very light and small, 95% metal, has a big grip and actually does more than the NEX-6. If I ever need an EVF (only on the brightest days where the screen is hard to see,) I take the G1 with arguably the best EVF ever. But the range of possibilities with both the 6 and the 5R is amazing, especially with a few of the apps installed.
