Re: Thinking of switching from M43 to NEX


I am thinking the same thing, but I am way ahead of you. I have the Olympus Pen LP2 with the 14-150 lens which i dearly love but I also have the NEX 3, NEX 5N and the F3. I recently sold my NEX 7. I teach digital photography which is sort of an explanation of why I can't make up my mind. I brought both The LP2 and the F3 with me to Rome where I am writing this. In the 10 days I have been here I shot 153 pictures with the LP2 and 1,063 with the F3 with the kit 18-55 lens. The image detail on the NEX images are fantastic even at ISO levels of 3200. That was just not possible with the LP2. I think the NEX 6 will be on my wish list and I will be selling the F3. I love the 5N but I slightly damaged the LCD so I will hold on to it as an emergency backup. I loan out the NEX 3 to students who want to see what a MIL camera is like. I sold the 7 because the image quality of the 5N was superior especially at higher ISO levels. Others have found the same thing.
