The only thing I never liked about the NEX system is that there are no decent zoom lenses that doesnt double or tripple the size of the camera and destroys the APS-C sensor in a small body argument.
Having said that, the 4/3 sensor has made huge leaps and bounds. Keep in mind, EVERYONE, canon, nikon etc always made fun of the 4/3 sensor. They was a lot of comments made about the 10MP roof and the ISO and I remember when I was selling cameras, Canon Reps came into the store telling my customers to never buy Olympus and Panasonic becuse they werent real camera companies. I worked for a chain store so I was hearing that a few friends in the other stores were also hearing similar expewriences.
But besides the point, 4/3 has pushed past these criticisms, with 14MP and potentially 16MP in future bodies like the OM-D line. So I think that their attempts at marketing 4/3 are sound, the comments yes are abit childish, but hey, all the companies do it. I remember working for a TV company where we were given lots and lots of empty TV boxes from this company and told to place them near street front shops, so it looks like lots of people are buying these TVs. Sometimes people were hired to wear a company's uniform and talk to customers and then secretly "give their own experience" which was, oh I work for company A, but Its not so great, buy company B.
These comments from the companies at the very least is quite honest and effective - we are talkinga bout it now
Id like to see where APSC and 4/3 goes from now on. There are bright futures ahead.
