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.

The Sigma`s on the Nex`s really were seen as super, do you know why, it was because, at the time, Sony only made good lenses, not super lenses.

The same lens on a Panasonic or Olympus body was only seen as good, but they were comparing the lens against other M4/3 lenses and many of these were superb.

Read enough of the reviews and some will state the Sigma`s deliver a slightly better result on M4/3 than on the Nex.
