@TS, you need to consider what else you need in a camera. long focal lengths, genre of photography you want to try, etc. that will determine what kind of camera you will buy.
else, you'll be grabbing every product that comes into view
What we want TS to know is that... there is no best camera... the best one is the one that he/she will use happily and often. You can have a feature packed system... but at the end of the day, if you felt so tedious to use and left it laying in your dry cabinate all the time, then wouldn't it be better to just get a system that everyone ignored or 'pass by' but you love it so much and you can make beautiful picture out of it?
Our point is... do not discount any brand... be it Canikon, Pentax, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, Ricoh, etc etc. All of them did well at what they are designed to do and at the end of the day, it is TS who should decide which one suits him/her best.
Let me explain each naming first,
DSLR - Digital Single Lens Reflex, come with mirror reflecting TTL optical viewfinder.
DSLT - Digital Single Lens Translucent, come with translucent fixed half mirror, no optical viewfinder, but a EVF Electronic View Finder
MILC/CSC and EVIL- Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera, Compact System Camera, Electornic Viewfinder Inter-changeable Camera. As naming suggestion, some MILC/CSC does provide optional EVF, where EVIL will come with built-in EVF.
Since what you have heard was from salesman point of view, I'm gonna to explain accordingly so you will not be confuse more. And since you are more interested in Mirrorless CSC, I'll just touch base on this type of DC.
Auto-focus - Good auto focus speed for APS-C format, as it come with dual phase and contrast focusing sensor. For even faster auto focus speed, you will need the bulkier Sony SLT camera as they are using translucent fixed mirror thus allowing faster auto focus especially in video mode.
Touch screen - Although not too responsive, but it is ok speed for menu access. If you do a lot self portrait, then the flippable to face you tilt screen a plus point. The screen also not bright enough, so under some sunlights you will have hard time seeing thing clearly on screen.
Menu - There's some people feel Sony 6 icons based main menu not ideal for fast menu acess. You'll need to click onto each icon before you are able to see what features hide in this icon. Sony SLT camera might having better tabs + rows menus, but lack of touch screen slow down the menu access. For me, tabs + row based menu + touch screen will enable much much speedier menu access.
Hand grip - Sony NEX camera having a hand grip that was a bit too close to lens for comfort grip. If you have bigger fingers, then it may pose less desire comfort and gripping.
It's a good camera, but as youself already mentioned, it has a smaller 1" sensor. So given same focal length and aperture stop, it has larger depth-of-view range than the one with APS-C sensor camera. So it may not fit your settle for 1 camera at 1 go desire.
Olympus EVIL or MILC camera,
Yes, with the helps of M4/3 smaller sensor and lens, they do have faster auto focus than others. It's good, but it might meet your bigger sensor in small camera body desire.
Btw, if asking forumers on which brand camera is good, you will surely invite something that not to your original intention. As such, I don't want to make any further conclusion here to avoid any unwanted attention. Do pm me if you wanted more discussion or recommendation.
Sony : limited lens, good for manual lens (with adapter), better grip
Olympus : wiiiiidee range of range
IQ is on par..
AF almost similar...
so, just tested and you have to know what "you want"
*my 2 cents*
Yes both Sony and Olympus are good cameras. All cameras are good, if it's not good they won't manufacture it.
But does anybody knows which one their colour is more saturated?
as for level of saturation, i feel that Olympus' color is more saturated.
I've used both sony NEX 5R and Olympus E-PL5. In terms of colors I really like sony NEX 5R with Zeiss 24mm F1.8 prime lens in terms of color, it's very vivid compared to Olympus kit lens the 14mm - 42 mm. Even the sony RX 100 color is more saturated than the Olympus E-PL5 kit lens. I've used the Panasonic leica 25mm F1.4 on the Olympus but I didn't do direct comparison with the sony. The lens is much better than the kit lens though. If you want to know more about the 2 cameras can add me on fb my email is email@example.com
