Hi Everyone! This is my first post in this forum, although I have been hanging in the Nex forum for some time. However I have now changed from the Nex F3 to the E-PL5, why you might ask? That is what I should share with you..... I was a very happy Nex user, although, I missed something, long Telezooms, this was something I was aware about when entering the Nex system, but thought that I could manage without the extra 100mm. I couldn't. So now, a year later I switched to the Panasonic G5 (wait a minute, didn't you just read E-PL5 ??, well coming to that...) and I couldn't get a single shot sharp (unless with flash, and I hate flash) I also had a problem with the menu system.... So sent it back and bought the E-PL5 for a great price (and a free 40-150 lens) ! This camera has nailed focus every time ! And it has a menu system I like, customizable!! just the way I need! So, compared to Nex there are some differenses, some important some less important *they are almost the same size (E-PL5 is a little smaller), *Nex got better screen, *image quality seems to be identical, *More lenses in mu43 *Better lenses (in my paygrade) in mu43 *IBIS *MUCH FASTER AF! these are the reasons i switched, and so far, it is great! I will post photos later when I have taken anything interesting so far it is only "test" pictures!!
