I currently have a Sony Nex 5 with all of the currently available E Mount lens' and have been very happy with the quality of the photos and ease of use.

I've had a Nex 7 on order since Sept 9 and am anxiously awaiting its shipment (sometime in January according to rumors).

I've gone with the Nex due to its ability (although I have not done it yet) to use adapters to use almost any other manufacturers lens'. I want to use Nikon lens', there's an adapter for them.

If you have any confidence in DXOmark both the 5 and 7 have superior benchmark scores compared to the x100.

Nex 5n/7 vs x100

Nex 7 vs x100 and D3

The Nex 7 has an overall score that equals a Nikon D3 and handily beats it in all ways except low light photography (the Nex 5n/7 are both rated as slightly better in low light then the x100). The Nex 5n also beats the D3 but less dramatically.

The Nex 5n on paper beats out the x100 in every respect and costs less and can use other lens'.

Both the Nex's and the x100 are all fine cameras but the Nex is much more versatile and that's what made it my choice.

Here's a slideshow of a recent trip to Turkey with all photos taken with the Nex 5 and Sony's E Mount lens'. Some good some not so good with very little post processing. My favorites start at 21.30.
