I know that the poster was trying out both the new camera and lens but I would've liked to see at least a few samples shot on a NEX-7 or 6.
I'm really digging the m4/3 system right now and I'm awaiting the E-M1. I was invested in the NEX camp for a while and it seemed like everything was just good enough, but nothing really exciting. The last few models out of the m4/3 camp have combined a lot of features that make it seem like a more mature system. What the GX7 has scheduled with the peaking, magnified...Show more →
I won't argue with the gizmo-esque quality of m43. They do appeal to the gadget nerds in all of us. However, for some of us, it comes down to IQ and handling. For those two points, I still prefer NEX over Fuji X and m43. I do hope Sony ups their game on the higher end NEX. It does frustrates me that Sony comes out with minor releases of the NEX 3 and 5 every year, and there is no signs of an updated NEX 7. With NEX, Sony has been even more conservatively incremental than Canon has been with their DSLRs. I think part of the reason is that out of all the camera makers, only Sony has divided attention. They dabble in everything and are too stubborn to give up on losing battles. Contrast to Canon's and Nikon's more decisive reduction of exposure to P&S and mirrorless, Sony just seems unfocused. Personally, I believe they should consolidate to RX and NEX cameras. If they did that, we'll see much more focused product design and releases.
