I am interested in 2 lenses,

Nex. M4/3

24mm $1000 . 20mm. $350

16-70m. $1000.(*) 14-45mm. $350

Both lenses from m4/3 are excellent and compact, I own both, even though I can afford to buy both Nex lenses they are really too expensive, I refuse to buy them. Reasonable price to me should be around $500-600 and more than that.

* it is at best mediocre to good, not excellent. The 18-105mm G lens is too bulky and not proven to be excellent.

That's funny because I have the same 2 M43 lenses and yes, they are excellent, but old. My 14-45 came standard-kit with my Lumix G1, the very first M43 camera only! It is big a d heavy compared to to-day's lenses and being so old, the price is irrelevant. The 20/1.7 is in it's 2nd version now; a lovely pancake and excellent as it's companion, the tiny 14/2.5.

I don't own the NEX lenses for the same reason; price. But they are normally priced and worth it, to some people. It is exactly for this reason that I keep these 2 parallel systems.

But your argument is off course because MOST M43 lenses are much more expensive than the 2 you have here, and rival the E-mount lenses in price.
