Sony NEX 5R vs Olympus EM-5: Opinions are needed.
Sep 24, 2013

What's the consensus of Sony NEX 5R? Is it a good camera or should I just wait for the upcoming Sony NEX 5T?

My defn of a good camera: good high iso, fast & accurate AF, intuitive & responsive control.

Things that interest me about this camera: Wi-fi, selfie-friendly LCD and larger sensor than my current Olympus OMD. I also plan to use the Mitakon lens-turbo with few FD lenses that I already have.

How is the AF speed/accuracy compared to OMD? Is the hybrid AF just a gimmick?

I also read there's a problem with the wifi implementation (eg. very slow to connect to iphone). Has it been addressed by Sony?

Thanks.
