Re: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Vs. Sony NEX-6 (or other APS-C mirrorless)

I switched from a NEX-5N to the OM-D several months ago.

The reasons were:

- to have a more reactive camera (I find that nex cameras are slow to boo-up and resume)

- to have a better autofocus

- to have smaller lenses, and primes with good cost/quality ratio (zeiss 24mm is indeed excellent, but very expensive)

At this time, I'm very happy with the OM-D. The image quality is excellent, and actually I prefer the rendering of the OM-D pictures.

To sum-up my impression: I feel that the OM-D is a great photographic tool, while the NEX are more designed as small (and not very reactive) small computers... But that's only my impression
