Jokica: NEX-F3 (with kit lens) - 600$RX100 - 650$NEX-5n (with kit lens) - 700$ (I paid mine 650$ :-))SONY has filled all gaps and has camera for everyone needs. Bravo!
That EPM1 kit has slower lenses and worse ISO performance, both conspiring to make it a worse low light kit.
Michael Ma: I wish they kept it to a respectable 12mp and kept the noise down more. The last thing you want to carry with this thing is a fill flash. Seriously, 20mp?
Did you look at the ISO6400 sample? Even at 100% is looks awesome, but resize to 12mp and it's phenomenal! And at the lowest ISOs, the per pixel sharpness is quite good for jpgs
The latest sensors no longer trade pixel density for overall image noise. The smaller pixels allow you to make the trade yourself in post, which I think is ideal. I also have a D800, and the performance of that sensor is in no way, shape, or form a compromise despite its huge mpix count.
noneyabidnis: I'm so very excited about this camera!!! I've always loved taking pictures and got a used Nikon D700 a year ago, but now the D800 will allow me to become a true professional. I don't think I want to do photography for a living, but I like knowing that all my pictures will have that professional looking quality about them.
