I'm an Oly fanboy but I think NEX is the clear winner for using legacy lenses. The smaller crop factor and focus peaking are more important than any advantages M43 might have.

Phew, that is a very refreshing post

I'm still watching the GH3 to see if they do put in focus peaking. I would be very tempted to grab one if they do. I would add one lens to that for the crop factor and another to the NEX-7. That would be very handy IMO. I wish Oly would put it in the OMD, but it doesn't look like it. Still IBIS does offer a lot.

All the best.

Thank you for comments! As I see m4/3 system (especially OM-D) have an advantage over NEX’s in term of Auto Focus, means “Street”, “Point-and-Shot” and “Journalist” shooting. There AF is extremely important. But in case of “art” slow photo – NEX gives more flexibility.
