Re: Nex-6 and OM-D user comparison

Hi limbonaut,

Would be interested for your slightly more detailed comparison between NEX-6 and OM-D.  Perhaps your list of pros / cons of each one.

My background - I was looking to move to a mirror system (from Nikon D700) about 6 months ago and was all set on the OM-D (already owning a GF3 got me the taste for m43) when I had a last minute change of heart and went for the NEX-6.  My main reasoning at the time was the extra bokeh of APS vs. m43, and the size advantage of NEX-6 vs. OM-D. I've had no regrets, but that's obviously as I never really got to play with the OM-D except in the shops for a few minutes at a time.  So interested to hear from someone who's obviously played with both extensively.

My main gripe so far with the NEX-6 (and also my NEX-5N which I bought very cheap SH) has been the slower focusing, it's not caused me to miss any shots so far, but it's certainly caused me and my subject (usually my wife!) to be a bit more patient while I line up shots.  Is that significantly faster on the OM-D?


(I'm using mainly with the SEL3518 and SEL1018, although sometimes with the SEL1650)
