Are you tempted by the NEX3 / NEX5?

Yes

Count me in !

I'm on my 2nd GH1 now and though the camera is a bit smaller than most DSLRs, I can't even count the number of times I've left it because it's just a bit much for my casual needs.

What the market (and I) need is a really compact camera that can also excel in low-light (as with my Lumix pancake lens) and the have zoom capability (like the kit GH1 lens). The NEXs have that with some compromises, all of which I'm willing to live with. Even if the PQ is not top notch, I'm not aiming for Hasselblads-type pics and big jumbo size prints so I'll guarantee I won't miss it. Heck, I've been impressed with pics from lowly super compacts. It's the subject, composition e.g. and not the tool in most cases.
