Re: Which is the Best mirror less camera for portrait photography?

Depends on which FL you prefer to shoot at the Olympus will give you 90mm and the NEX will give you 75mm which is quite a big difference in terms of where you will be standing and how far away you are from your subject.

I believe i read somewhere that the Olympus JPEG is quite boss (i think it was the OM-D review).

NEX is good due to the larger sensor.

NEX 5T has been announced so it is worth waiting for it to be in stores before you go find your 5N or 5R.

I am an NEX user so i am biased towards them but Olympus (almost got the OM-D over my NEX7) is definitely a good camera and you cant go wrong with either.

I would like to go for a good mirror less camera with a perfect lens for portrait photography. I now own Pentax K-30 with 18-135mm kit lens and an Olympus XZ-1 compact camera. I am not very satisfied with the color tones the Pentax DSLR is delivering. So, now seriously thinking to add a reasonable price mirror less camera and a fast lens for portrait snaps.

Right now, following are in my list :

Olympus EPM-2 with Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8

Sony NEX 5N with E50mm f 1.8 OSS

Which one you would recommend ? Any other systems to consider? JPEG color ( Especially Skin tones etc) rendition is important for me.

Any advice would be greatly helpful.
