I have both the X100 and Nex-5n. I have to say I love them both, and that they're both a different shooting experience.

I like using the 5n for waist-level shooting with the screen flipped out, and I like using the X100 with it's viewfinder to my eye. Both cameras give fantastic results.

The look and feel of the X100 can't be beat - except maybe by an M9 - in my mind. But ultimately it's the image results that matter, of course.

Together in a Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag, they make a wonderful, light kit that can do almost anything. I also bought an adapter for the Nex-5n so that it can take my Nikkor lenses, which you can't do with the X100. So, overall, the Nex-5n is the more versatile camera, but I'd be very happy to only have the X100.

Then there is the coming X200(?) which will, apparently, allow for different lenses to be attached. According to Thom Hogan 2012 is going to be a big year for new camera releases, and I just bet Canon will announce a mirrorless camera that'll be better than everyone elses. They can't afford not to play in this ever expanding market.

After all that, let me say I still love my D7000, it must be feeling a little neglected lately.

For camera lovers like us, we live in interesting times, but it makes it very hard to choose!
