GF1 is about to become outdated. NEX may actually be perfect for what ed is looking for, for the reasons TRINI stated. I'd really only recommend it over DSLR if the smaller size is a requirement, though. I'm probably going to hop on the m4/3 bandwagon when the updates to the GF1 and the EP series come out (next GF model is expected to be announced in a week or so, and for sure at Photokina in Sept.) But I want the manual controls and that pancake lens. NEX has a better sensor.
