Re: Should Sony bring out a competitor to the E-M5?

The reason I didn't get a Nex was the lenses issue.  Heaps more to choose from with the M43 selection.  If I was just after a 'modern' looking CSC camera though, the Nex6 would be hard to beat, but in terms of investing in a 'system', it kinda lost out. Sony won't be sitting still though, you can count on that.

I think the new E-P5 or whatever it's going to be called, needs to essentially be a retro styled compact design not dissimilar to what the E-P3 is, but with the E-M5's innards and a viewfinder.  It doesn't need IBIS.  It does however need a 25mm f2.0 prime kit as an option.

The next OM-D?  It really just needs PDAF and incremental improvements overall, doesn't it?
