    people usually start to provide opinion based on spec only. once they are physically try the product, the opinion might change

    looks like this happened to the nikon 1 series. after people start to use it, they like it. this is the example - Review: Nikon J1 versus Fuji X10 Ryan Brenizer — NYC Wedding Photographer. Problem solver, storyteller.

    btw, not to start a brand war, but i always have a perception that sony's product is overpriced ..... too many unused features that we've to bear the cost. anyway, it came from previous other products other than camera.

    I think every camera brand has overpriced products.

    With the new 18.5mm/f1.8 - should be good enough for babies and events.

    I'm thinking that this lens might be permanently affixed onto my J1!

    Forget the NEX, Nikon 1 (and Micro Four Thirds) are better! ;-) The NEX' AF sucks, don't believe the hype. :-P But the NEX is great for manual focus lenses!
