Nex 7 with standard lens is the closest Sony match to the specs of the Oly. The Oly then looks decidedly overwirght. The Nex 7 of course is a a previous generation camera to the Oly however when the replacement Nex is released a more meaningful comparison might be made.

Mike, I think that you are absolutely correct, especially if size (crop factor) matters.

Any why not compare against the current Nex-7? It is still leading APS-C cameras. Which again is a larger sensor in a smaller body. The current Oly 16Mp sensors have similar pixel-pitch to the Nex-7, but have only 2/3rd the number of pixels. Still a big gap...

(shown with 18-55 kit lens, the 16-70/4 lens is not in the database).

Makes you realize what a great achievement the Nex cameras really are!
