1, OK ..but no big deal with newer technology. IQ probably very close, more dependent on particular lens used rather than anything else. I suspect Canikon are starting to get worried, particularly Nikon as the Sony is likely using the same D800 (sony) sensor.

2. Sure, paper thin DOF easier if that's where you get your jollies, but most folks are more interested in the benefits of greater DOF with u4/3 & APSc.

True enough. I thought the DOF with APS-C was a good compromise, but now NEX is dead.

Not the Nex 3 and 5, I think.

3. Body size comparable, but Sony requires 35mm sized lenses, and that is a very big heavy deal, particularly if you want f2.8 or wider lenses.

The Zeiss EF FF lenses I handled, a 35mm/2.8 and a 50/1.8 were sureprizingly smalll.

A7+FE2,8/35mm has the same size and weight as EM5+1,8/17 plus DOF like 17/1,4 ...

Longer lenses will be large.

4. Cost: A7 + FE2,8/35 -  EUR 2200; EM5 + 1,7/17 - EUR 1400; other lenses even more expensive.

5. Legacy glass WA remain WA.
