    NEX 5N with the SEL 35mm f1.8 or Lumix GX7 with the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4

    I usually do different types of photographs, landscape, portrait, street, photo social content, but I especially like the night street photography.

    Someone who works for a magazine has contacted me because he likes my style and is he want for a photo story in which we follow for a day to a prostitute.

    I carry a NEX-5N with the Sigma 30mm f1.8 and Zuiko 50mm f1.4, I have a GH2 with various optical, but since I have the NEX only use the GH2 for video, I've been thinking in buy another M4 / 3 for video and stills to alternately as the GH2 dont allow slow motion like the GX7 and G6 and if (I dont spend a high budget on camera because the technological war leaves you 'obsolete' in two years), I also like the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4 which is an jewel optical

    Well, without straying from the question.

    Think in this exercise, both cameras at ISO 1,600, 3,200 and 6,400 at the street in the night, both lens at full aperture, the PanaLeica is faster, but the Sony sensor is larger and has theoretically advantage. but the new sensor of Panasonic seems has cut the distance respect to the NEX.

    So, I think Panasonic give better colors that Sony, the Lumix loo like more contrasted and punch.

    Some of my shots at the streets in the night withe the NEX.
