Re: Ni after the dust settled OM-D is not that much of a surprise

I envy the lenses. Especially the 75/1.8.


On aps-c it would need to be a 100mm/1.8 to get the equivalent focal length. Lack of longer primes or zooms are the weak point of using Nex as a system. I know they're on the way but am a bit tempted by the new Panny G5 and some of their lenses.

I may even consider a G3 as they're at bargain prices at the moment and the new 45-150 (90-300 equivalent) looks a good tele option.

But I won't desert Nex - the 7 was the camera I've been waiting for since consumer digital cameras first became available - but it'd be nice if Sony was a big more forthcoming.
