Re: EPL 5 or NEX 5R

I keep seeing people mention the Nex5 as faster. I don't have the EPL5 or the Nex, but I do have the OMD with the same sensor as the EPL5, and it's ridiculously fast. Someone earlier mentioned some panasonics faster than the Pens, but I can't really see that, unless it's the GH3. I know my GX1 definitely was slower than the OMD, and it was pretty quick itself.

I don't recall any Nex reviews saying they were faster than the OMD. Is the EPL5 slower than the OMD, despite the same sensor? Or does all the Nex have over them is the the PDAF for tracking? If the Nex is faster than the EPL5, and the EPL5 is as fast as the OMD, then I think that's a moot point... the OMD is blazing fast, and any difference would hardly be noticeable.
