Re: I wouldn't use an NEX if you GAVE it to me. What about EM5 ?

I used to have a NEX 5R. Hate their lenses, the kit zoom 16-55mm is so ordinary. Their menu layout is horrible. I bought a Sigma 19mm and put it on the NEX. The Sigma 19 is a great lens at $199. The NEX sensor is stunning, clean even at ISO 3200. Love the small body of the NEX 5R and its grip. I sold it off, moved to Fuji, no regrets.

Currently I shoot EM5 often side-by-side with XE-1. When comparing pics from EM5+pana 25mm Vs XE-1 with 35mm, I prefer the WB of the XE-1, and the detail and AF speed of the EM1. I know WB, detail and NR to some extent can be manipulated in LR and other PP means. AF speed is the EM5's clear advantage.

I can't currently say which combo I prefer, but my preference is on the controls of the XE-1, though hate the soft EV dial, its easily bumped around. The XE-2 has me interested, if face detection works well, i m tempted. Also AF tracking, wow.

Either is definitely better than an NEX, by far!
