People will always be switching systems I suppose and in no way to i want ppl to dislike NEX, because they are great little cameras

I like that I can buy whatever legacy lenses I can afford and get them working with it. I'd LOVE the E-mount long lens but I cant justify it, even with my christmas money. I need to put it towards getting my sax patched up - she's old and leaky.

it's better to have and old and leaky sax then something else old and leaky I guess

Absolutely. I love switching. It's just so much fun to try something different. That being said, and being Nexless as of today, I would totally consider having NEX again in the future if the lens line-up grows a bit in a useful direction, and if AF performance gets truly boosted. NEX rock, no doubt.

The AF has never bothered me much (not even on the first nex'es) but mainly the lens selection
But also when the first nex came out there weren't much alternatives... m4/3 was still growing up then , fuji had no ilc cameras at all and there we X100's , X10s or rx100 cameras...

I've had the NEX-5, NEX-C3 and ordered a 7 when they were first announced, had it, used it with adapted lenses, no kit lens then sold it. Since then I've had, Fuji-X100, X-Pro1 w/bunch of Contax glass, a Leica x1, and a Canon 1DS MKII, EOS-M which I sold to get a really nice used NEX-7 again, now I have the Zeiss 24 1.8, an A mount adapter which I use with an 85 1.4, finally a little Voigtlander 15mm I couldn't be happier.
It's just a tool, there's no mojo, no look, it simply captures every detail quickly, efficiently, beautifully.
I came back.
M9/Cron35 and OK, fine... now an RX1
I think I'm done now.

I think this also! M4/3 and Fuji render their images in a much more analogue way...to me anyway!
Also I feel that nex renders images a bit too.. hmmm "digital"

If I can make just one person smile then I've had a good day!

And the Fuji even looks and feels analogue-esque.

I have had the Nex 3 and 5n. The only reason I even keep the Nex around is that it makes a good universal digital back for old film lenses I still have around. If I ever sell the old lenses that require the Nex body then the Nex will soon follow. I also have a Ricoh gxr w/ m module as well.. If it was not for the fact that I have some lenses that need a shorter lens to sensor distance, the Nex would have been sold ages ago.. The iq from the 12mp sensor looks a lot better than the 16mp of the Nex to my eye (just MHO). The UI of the gxr is also much better..
The sigma dp Merrill series and the Fuji x100 and xp1 are the cameras I currently use the most. I really like these two camera systems the most.
