Interesting... why not NEX? APS-C size sensor, CSC size.

Either way, I'm curious as to what your new toy is.

the price of the body, and the price and choice of lens for the nex system.

i have my DSLR if i want to "go and take pictures" but i'll give this a go for general picture taking.

After a trip with this new camera, i'm impressed...

it's going to take a bit of getting used to, new camera, different buttons and so on, but for a first attempt, it went well..

Nice toy. One of the better CSC's. I did debate it, but opted for the NEX because of the sensor. You can get some nice glass for the EPL1 for very little coin, but You forgo autofocus/aperture. Adaptors for most mounts on fleabay.

to be honest, after using the camera i'll be buying the 7.5mm lens and thats it, the camera will be purely for exploring.

i'm impressed with the quality of the raw's

Can You post one up that's not important? I fancy taking a look, but You don't tend to see many underground shots in reviews...

It's a 2x crop factor isn't it?

Got it, cheers. Nicely done. I may have to reassign some pennies in that direction.

for what it cost i'm more than happy, with a bit of practice, working out how it reacts to different settings i recon i could get some fairly decent results.

you just have to remember it's a £100 compact not a £800 DSLR

the bonus is it's easier to lug about and if it gets broken, it's £100 not £800.

i did the CRTT trip with it out the full trip, just left it around my neck when doing the SRT bits, never put it back in my bag at all, thats how small and light it is.

Am i missing something? - what make/model?

I talked dan (the other dan) out of a dSLR and into a NEX6. Its definitely the way i'd be going if i was buying from scratch.

2 years from now i recon we'll have full frame compact system cams.

It's posted up there, an E-PL1 (Olympus) very cheap camera, which means there is a lot of button pushing, but the picture quality is as good as a slr (a mid range one anyway)

NEX 6 is veery nice. As for full frame CSC, an NEX has been rumoured for a bit, and will likely surface this year... not that I could afford it.

it would never take off..

toggers spending the kind of money it will be, will want a real looking/feeling camera, no matter how good the compact is..

it's like the nex 6 and SLT-a57, they are both the sake spec (ish) yet the nex is £100 more expensive, you're getting less camera, for more money, makes no sense.

Size, and register distance. For the people who use manual lenses (lots of video guys, and a fair amount of stills), the ability to add a huge array of lenses, with a simple, cheap adaptor, is immense. I know a fair amount of people ready to drop £1K on the body.

but you can use a simple cheap adaptor on the FF dslr (slt) body, and as the nex and slt range share the same sensors, i'm guessing the FFD will be the same.

to be fair, anyone willing to drop a grand (a full frame nex will be closer to £2k though) on a body isnt worrying about spend money on decent glass.

if you look at the nex 6 which is about the same as a A57, it's £100 more.

the nex 7 which is a A77 (ish) the nex is £70 more.

the a99 which is the full frame SLT is £1800, now sony made a full frame compact, the RX1 which is £2400, but you cant even change the lens, you're stuck with a 49mm prime. when the FF nex comes out, you will be looking at a minimum of £2k without a shaddow of a doubt, i also guarantee it would take E mount lenses, it will take the A or AF mount and i bet it will only take the s3c chipped lenses like the SLT cameras, there will be no using old manual focus lenseson it.
