*with fast lens Oly can be as fast or very close to NEX 5R fast

#I have heard you can use an art filter to mimic focus peaking?


Ooops! I see wifi was over on the EPL 5 side that is obviously Sony feature. I am reading some negative things about the wifi though, slow processing... great idea, maybe the next model or the model after that the kinks maybe out of it.

Also someone suggested the Sony 3n (I think this is the model, it is the newest model out) I was disappointed when this came out that it did not have the faster sensor of the 5R and 6, also I am hoping to utilize the flip up screen and actually be in a photo or two with my children. I know I could use a tripod and timer or remote, but I think the flip up screen will be more spontaneous for my kids (ages 6,4,3)

Does anyone else have any input NEX or m4/3


I have the 5R, which I like very much. It is a huge improvement over my older NEX-3 and my E-PL1, both of which I still have. I really can't see how the E-PL5 can stand up to any sort of comparison; same thing for the Pana. GX-1. Aside from features, the 5R/6/7 performance comparison on DxOMark is superior to the ME-5, or the GH-3's in every category. Just my opinion.

but...I still love the E-PL1 and my G1.
