Hey

Did just see the announcements from Sony and have to say that the m43 system seems more and more overpriced compared to the NEX system. See the new nex5t a very competetive sensor, and the new entry level model, with a very capable sensor as well.

Compare that to the EP5 and the GX7. I know maybe not a completely fair comparisson but not far off, the prices are though.

And the cheap sigma primes are a super match for the aps-c sensor, not as much the m43.

I am a m43 supporter BUT I do think that it gets less and less competetive compared to nex.

I agree that the E-P5 and GX7 are overpriced.

But the E-PL5 and NEX-5R are the same price, $500, and are equivalent cameras. The current m4/3 sensor competes very well with APS-C. Check samples, and dxomark results.
