AussieBarb: What about including the Ricoh GR in this line-up? You rated it highly.
Love my Ricoh GR. A fantastic camera but not a zoom and not released this year sooooo? Some how if it was not released very recently it does not exist. Gotta keep them comsuming.
HeyItsJoel: Bye bye, Olympus Micro Four-Thirds...
Yes m43's have the size advantage...both are very different (and great) cameras for different market segments.
Horshack: Looks pretty nice to me. A tinge of luxury but without a hint of gaudiness.
like a gold plated stretch Hummer?
Can it get any uglier?…oh yes there is the 24k gold edition
Mirrorless Crusader: These photos look like they were taken by a 7-year-old.
Well give that 7 year old a medal. I think most of these shots are wonderful.
Aroart: Hands down the best bang for the buck.
wow race won…everyone else pack up and go home? I like some Micro Four Thirds cameras very much and nearly bought one recently…but I could not justify the price point. Bought an A6000 instead. In my small world the Sony won that race by a fair margin. You of course seem to be speaking for everyone. Between the A5100 and A6000 I think the A6000 is much better value.
jonrobertp: Phones as photography....let's be serious.
Thats the problem with DSLRs…maybe they are too serious and need to lighten up a bit.
wow amazing light.
rodderslw: What a bargin! Just image quality alone those studio shots look great compared to their direct competition and beyond. Do they use the kit lens for the studio comparison? I have had this camera for about 6 weeks now and am very happy with it. Great to hold and shoot with and with the SEL35f18 prime it shines. Also great to use with my old Minolta 50mm f1.4 and other legacy lenses.
Awesome, thanks for the info.

justmeMN: With their mediocre-at-best 16-50mm lens, Sony decided that (small) size was more important than quality - a shame.
I like the 16-50mm. It's a good compomise between size, versatility IQ and price. Great walk around combo. This is an interchangable lens camera system. You want faster and better IQ you can buy the SEL 35mm F1.8 OSS which is a great compact lens or go get a $50 Minolta 50mm F1.7 with adapter...great fun.
ageha: The body looks like an incarnation of Samsung's old NV line of cameras. Nice copy...
or the sony NEX3 from 2010
Thanks for your review so far. I think most cameras at this point point will deliver good photos so more and more it is the handling and usability thats important. I found the NEX6 a good step up from the NEXc3 so reading your comments about the A6000 is very encouraging.
The NEX/Alpha cameras have matured into good tools instead of just tech. Still will take some time for people to see a 'SONY' camera as a real camera. BTW I handled the A6000 and Oly EM10 together and felt the Sony was more comfortable. The EM10 felt too small and my hand was always touching some buttons. Both seem like nice cameras but I will buy the sony because I have some E mount primes.
chillgreg: It's so bloody ugly.
I quite like the look of it….go figure.
Wye Photography: Personally, I think all these have been faked, staged or photoshopped
Yeah these people do not look life like at all. This is the problem with the new Sony A7 sensor… : )
ArcaSwiss: Seems like a laughable waste if time to me
er thats kind of the point. Also laughing is NEVER a waste of time.
Nice to see pictures from Melbourne, Australia. Hope you had a coffee and lasagne at Pellegrini's! The perfect use of these mirrorless cameras is for travel.
