ntsan: This is what I call pocket-able! unlike NEX's humongously huge zoom lens
Nex has better DR and lowlight performance. Of course it isn't the lens, but you can't put a nex lens on a mft, or this lens on a nex. So you might as well include the performance of the system you have to use it with. Either way, kudos to them for making such a compact zoom, I hope sony follows suit rather than lying back drinking wine and talking about their superior DR.
