Ricoh GXR Mount Sony Nex 5N comparison

I know a lot of people are trying to decide between Ricoh and the Nex 5n for use with legacy lenses. Below I have attached center and edge crops from the voigtlander 12mm 5.6 and 28mm 3.5 lenses. They were taken at F8 and iso 200 on both cameras.

Ricoh Pros
+Micro contrast
+Camera build and handling

+Mode 2 focus assist very accurate (I read sony's focus peaking was better, but I found it much easier to nail focus on the Ricoh especially with the 12mm lens.)

Sony Pros
+Iso 100 - shadows are clean and have a lot of latitude
+Movie mode is more versatile
+Focus peaking was good, although I prefer Ricoh's mode 2
+Flip LCD screen

Top image is Ricoh, bottom is Nex 5n.
