In the case of a 50mm F1.8 OIS lens, that only means Sony.

EPL with the EVF, IBIS, and 45/1.8 won't cut it? It would be cheaper than the Nex-7 body alone. Granted the Sony probably has a stop (errr... two) better ISO performance, but 24MP is a lot of data for portraits (?) to wade through. Plus you would have to crop the image down to 14MPish to "mimic" the look of the 45/1.8 on m43, if you find the wider portrait lens slightly awkward.

It sounds to me like you are the guy trying to defend a brand, although I don't know what.

You see it on every, single, board... I don't think it is related to the camera brand so much as the personality of the individuals participating.
