This thread has some legs and I am a bit hesitant to keep it going, given that it is a Sony forum, but given that these threads show up in searches, I do think it is a constructive thread and can help others.

I would agree that the Nex is the best platform for legacy lenses, and while I do have some of those lenses, I'm looking for a modern platform with quality lenses and bodies. I've really enjoyed the Zeiss 24/Nex-7 combo, but there is nothing else getting me very excited now. The new Touit lenses are available for both platforms, but so far, I prefer the results of the Fuji lenses.

As for the controls, I think a lot of younger shooters will prefer Sony. That is not a criticism, it is market segmentation. I already enjoy the controls on my Fuji body better. Getting good photos is obviously important, but the act of getting them is all the fun and I like the Fuji controls right now.

To make this post relevant for those who find it. Ask yourself what kind of shooter you are and try both. I bought the Nex before there was anything to compare it to, and I don't regret it. It broke me of my DSLR habit. I'm just hooked on Fuji shooting now. It's like the Leica I can afford.

Best to all
Rich
