I would like to go for a good mirror less camera with a perfect lens for portrait photography. I now own Pentax K-30 with 18-135mm kit lens and an Olympus XZ-1 compact camera. I am not very satisfied with the color tones the Pentax DSLR is delivering. So, now seriously thinking to add a reasonable price mirror less camera and a fast lens for portrait snaps.

Right now, following are in my list :

Olympus EPM-2 with Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8

Sony NEX 5N with E50mm f 1.8 OSS

Which one you would recommend ? Any other systems to consider? JPEG color ( Especially Skin tones etc) rendition is important for me.

Any advice would be greatly helpful.



I would look for the following for portrait photography

- large sensor

- more autofocus points / cross-type points the better (to a point)

- access to either prime or zoom lens with relatively fast apertures with focal aranges around 50mm through to 110mm

- hotshoe for flash

Good luck,


The NEX 6 has all that. 99 focus points larger sensor than the Olympus. APS- C sensor, that's why I bought into the NEX system because it had the largest, as far as I know, for a mirrorless camera.
