NEX made a revolution on eBay - old cameras that could not be sold for a 100 Euro now go of 400 amidst fierce competition to buy them.

Umm, NEX contributed to that, but it's not NEX that made that revolution. It started way before NEX appeared with m4/3 cameras.

m43 is a joke.

You could stop ride there. That all I need to know about your opinion really. Some feel the same way about NEX, btw. It's a big world and there are a lot of fools in it.

They were first and hence have made some inroads. However they are behind NEX even with NEX having 2 lens options.

Lol. For you, perhaps. For others they are miles ahead...

Total Panaosnic + Olympys...may be selling more. However Sony is ahead of either individually.

Not true either. At least not in Japan. BCN rankings:

Mirroless market share: Mirrorless Market Share (January to May 2011):
Olympus (37.95%), Sony (32.02%),
Panasonic (30.03%).
The year 2010 ended with following shares
Panasonic (38.7%)
Sony (32.2%) Olympus (29.1%).

So as a total m4/3 is outselling NEX 2 to 1, and individually (which is really irrelevant) NEX is not a leader either. To me this points to a really competitive market, but you can continue to live in your SONY dream.

We saw this story in DSLR - 43rds have limited potential they will retain 20-25% market sahre for some time and then go to 10, 9 and stay there for ever. IQ is ridiculous - Panasonic is making some great strides and their latest camera verges on usable, but any APS-C with similar resolution blows it far away. Should we discuss the lack of DOF control and flat look, the weird sensor is not serious to even discuss.

I don't think I would want to discuss anything camera related with you. You are just a fanboy with a thick reality filter in front of your eyes.
