Besides the price though the NEX mens your having to carry around 2 extra lenses, a viewfinder and a flash, a big issue since the whole purpose of the camera is to be compact and easy to transport.

Flash yes, but why two extra lenses? Canon's is a bit longer (while Sony has a couple more megapixels to somewhat compensate), but they are in the same ballpark, wide to mid-range zoom, neither has any real telephoto reach, and many Canon Rebel and similar DSLR owners only use the kit 18-55 lenses.

A viewfinder is also something good to have, but not what you must carry - most M4/3 users probably never buy the optional EVFs, and most compact cameras, including Canon's flagship S100, do without an OVF.
