Re: m3/4 mirrorless vs sony mirrorless

Adapting Legacy/FF Lenses: APSc wins unless one is into optical reach (then a 1" sensor camera might be better than APSc or m43).

Sony Lenses: while limited at this time to about 20 (plus Samyang, Sigma and Zeiss), offer good choices. A serious person can very easily build a very good system with a trio of zooms (10-18/4 OSS, 16-70/4 OSS and 70-200/4 OSS) covering 15mm-300mm equiv at constant f/4 and a mix of primes native or adapted. In fact, I feel 8mm/2.8 (fisheye), 12mm/2 (UWA), 20mm/2.8 (wideangle snapshot pancake) or 24/1.8 (wide angle), 35/1.8 OSS (normal walkaround), 50mm/1.8 OSS or 55/1.8 Zeiss (portrait) pretty much cover it. A long macro 90-100mm expected soon pretty much completes it.

Having 90 lenses to choose from makes no difference if you will choose only a few from a smaller sample anyway for specific needs.
