People wondering which camera to get will hear about the 1.2 lens and go for the nikon 1. Sony just doesn't seem to care.

Look let's not get carried away here - if you read the article here's what it clearly says:

"It will provide the angle of view and depth of field control of an 86mm F3.2 lens for a full-frame system"

Does f1.2 still sound amazing to you on that lens - really? What is the math for APS-C someone please as I am bad at the light stop stuff...what is it 58mm f2.4 DOF eq maybe?

NEX-6 APS-C sensor from some other discussions has maybe about 2 stops low light advantage over the RX100 sensor. The Nikon 1 sensors does not perform as well as RX100 (they are same size) so we could assume that a typical NEX performance is over 2 stops better then Nikon 1 current sensor.

So here you go the advantage of a $900 f1.2 lens is wiped out by a larger APS-C NEX sensor and a $300 50mm f1.8 lens in a blink of an eye. Yes it's 75mm eq vs 85mm eq...not a big deal. Not to mention Sony could easily make 55mm it if made any sense considering you have the 50mm.

Am I wrong here folks?
