I was sleepin on this for so long, there was only M left (my size) and I was getting so worried it would sell out but for some reason I just didn't cop. Checked it out today $123 and I pulled the trigger. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Patience is a virtue:)

^^ This is it for me. The size vs. quality ratio is the main benefit of m43. Always using a bunch of large, heavy lenses negates most of the benefits.

If I'm on a trip I despise the idea of lugging around an ostentatious display of camera equipment. Makes you look like either a clueless tourist, an equipment geek, or (if you're lucky) a professional photographer. And if it's the later, then some places might kick you out.

Not really, its pretty toasty. Still not really sure when I´ll use it, but problably like a "cardigan" winter time.

Y'ssuit arrived a bit slim in the quads and chest maybe time to stop lifting again plain.gif
But it 's so amazing, the wool gabardine fabric is lovely and the stitching detail so delicate, there are at least 4 ways of wearing this thing ...

the NEX has a full APS-C sensor same size as most entry and mid level dslrs, the 7 will blow most out of the water. couple that with zeiss e mount lens (phatguido has or had that system) and it's unstoppable portability/quality ratio

I still wonder if I should have got the NEX-7 as it does appeal to me. But the factors against it were...

m43 has better selection of available lenses
Panasonic has better firmware design than Sony
GX1 has faster AF than NEX, especially in low light
NEX produces more noise under low light conditions than GX1

But the biggest factor is this: There appears to be nothing with equivalent performance to the Pana 20mm F1.7 lens on the NEX with a form factor that isn't crazy big. So ultimately as good as the NEX is, it cannot give me the same level of performance in a truly pocket-able camera.

NEX-7 with Zeiss 24mm F1.8 lens mounted. Is this the lens you're referring to? I would not call this combo pocket-able!

that's the one ! the zeiss glass on that is far superior to the leica/panny

i didn't know you meant literally pocketable, though for me it's all the same, giant pockets can fit anything

I just purchased the Sony RX100. Now that's a bad bitch (and totally pocketable).
