More correct sensor area comparison

With respect to IQ, what matters is the sensor area (supposing everything is equal) and APSC is only 30% bigger than MFT sensors. Since the lens offering is far from stellar for the NEX, the difference could well be columned by the superior lenses line. And don't forget the extraordinary 5axes IBIS. In the end I'm nit sure whether the IQ would be very different between the two systems.

Sensor area comparison

MFT 225 mm2

Canon APSC 329 mm2  46% more than MFT

Nikon APSC 370 mm2  64% more than MFT

Not sure how you get "only 30% bigger than MFT sensors"
