Hi Ken

I think that you and I had exchanged opinions about these cameras on an earlier date.

I was very disappointed with the IQ of the GF 1 and the dedicated lenses that I purchased for it, but I reconciled my disappointment since the 4/3 lenses had cost a fraction of the cost of my Nikkor lenses and that I was expecting too much from these inexpensive lenses.

I agree that the NEX 3 was a bad choice. I tried the original NEX 5 and it was terrible. The new NEX 7 has a 24 mp sensor which is probably the same sensor that's in the new D3200, and is probably similar to the sensor in the D800.

The D3200 wasn't announced until today, but I may well be inclined to return the NEX 7 and buy the D3200.

But, as a direct answer to your question, I do not think that any of the current 4/3 cameras produce images that can compete in the IQ department with the current crop of NIkon DX cameras and Nikkor lenses.
