    In short my story

    I used to have a nex 3 which was a very nice camera but the colours and out of camera jpg's often disappointed me, and also the fact that there were only like 3 lenses for nearly 2 years...
    I then went to try micro 4/3, which has some good stuff but once the iso gets above 400-640 the grain comes in fast.
    I then even tried a few DSLR's but quickly decided that a dslr would be more at home then in my bag, even lugging around with a D7000 + 35mm prime made my wrist hurt after half an hour.

    So I decided to buy the nex 5n yesterday (still hard to get) after checking several forums...
    and wow, the colours are just so much better then the nex 3 ! Yea the focus is a bit slower then DSLR or 4/3 but who cares when the rest is great ?

    I also can't wait to get the sigma 30mm and sony 50mm (i should receive both next week) or the 55-210 (not in stock anywhere though)
    I doubted about getting the nex 7 but the price is twice the nex 5n (which almost gets me the lenses stated above)

    Oh and who sais the sony nex kit lens isn't sharp ?!

    I guess so. Wow, those are some really great shots. That Sony APS-C sensor is great isn't it? Sharp sharp.

    Hell yea, but what i wonder.
    The pentax k5 and Nikon d7000 have the same sensor
    I even tried them with their respective 35mm lenses (which should be waaaaaaaaay better then the sony kit lens)

    Well I didn't even get anything close to this out of those cameras ...

    The 5N sensor does seem to bring out the best of lenses. I was a bit disappointed with some of my legacy glass when used with a Panasonic GH2 but on the switch to the 5N they all seem noticeably better. Focus peaking possibly improved my focus accuracy a little but that sensor really performs. I've also become very fond of shooting with the tilt-able LCD.

    Dont know about the D7000, but you can fine tune up to 20 different lenses for the K-5. I imagine the D7000 would allow that, too...

    I'm 100% sure you can get great results with K5 (esp with the ltd lenses)
    Same goes for the Nikon

    But I'm just amazed that you can get this sharpness with a kit lens.

    Also I have the feeling that it's quite a bit easier to achieve nice shots with a Nex (or micro 4/3) then with a DSLR.
