I have suggested in other forums discussions that the critical difference between the Nex cameras and m4/3 is that the Nex uses what amount to full-sized lenses, while the m4/3 is substantially more compact. In other words, the Nex is more usefully compared to the D7000 or the K5 than to m4/3. But since both the m4/3 and the Nex are EVF systems, they tend to be lumped together. So a few questions, since I know you [Michael] have experience with both systems:
There is inevitably a difference in image quality because of the different sensor size, but I'm curious about where that kicks in on prints. Would you see much difference, say, at 13x19 using the best Panasonic vs. the best Sony lenses?
Do you *feel* like the size difference between Nex and m4/3 is notable? In terms of being discreet as you shoot, and in terms of carrying, say, a mid- or long-length zoom?
Are there times when you would prefer, as a shooting strategy, the m4/3 cameras?
