but if pricing is right...this could be a better choice. I don't see anything here to give up my NEX 5R and 7 for.

I love my DMC-G5. Got it for $498 from Amazon with the 14-42mm kit lens and bundled 45-150mm lens. I also bought a Sigma 30mm f/2.8 lens for it.

But for you, it doesn't really make since to leave the Sony system anyway unless you want to go through the trouble of getting new lenses as well.

No, there's no point. I already have wifi on it. The downer for the NEX is its price but I already paid it lol.
I have the same Sigma 30mm f/2.8 prime for the Nex also. Same lens but E mount instead.

I don't think there's a better sensor than what the Sony has now though. I wish can make their auto focus faster.

What does Panasonic not make well?
