To each his own

Yes, there are a few good m4/3 lenses, hardly covering my needs though, and nothing good in telephoto range. And for the price less than those few I got a bag of outstanding manual lenses, primes and zooms for any occasion, indoors and outdoors, bright and versatile, most producing better images, add in addition to that a sensor with much better IQ. So why paying 2.5-3G for a very limited system, which can't satisfy my needs, especially in low light and in telephoto, and which is easily surpassed by a 2G system with a lot more options?

The bottom line, even disregarding the costs, if somebody wants to get a DSLR quality and versatility in a smaller package, he can't get it from m4/3 system, -- neither cameras nor lenses are on par. The NEX system isn't perfect, but it's the closest he can get. I know a number of people not limited by financial considerations, who tried various cameras, including those expensive Leicas, and decided on NEX 7. But again, to each his own.
