This is my first post. I've been posting for a little while over at mu-43, apparently a "sister" site to this one. I've owned the E-PL1 since last February, and then the E-PM1 last September (the exact day the E-PL5 and E-PM2 were announced). Besides the kit lens I also used an old manual-focus Nikkor 50mm 1.8. I also own & use a Nikon D5100 d-SLR with 18-105mm VR and 50mm 1.8 G. Anyway, although I have at times pondered an NEX with its newer sensor vs the original PENs, with the PENs now getting the OM-D/EM-5 sensor, I was set to upgrade to the E-PM2 once my tax refund arrived. I was also going to get the 2 Sigma 19mm & 30mm lenses if I could still find them. However, I'm a notorious cheapskate, never mind that my tax refund was nearly $8000, so much so that I still use Photoshop CS, the ORIGINAL CS (until someone today told me Adobe now lets you use CS2 for free, so I downloaded it) and only about a year ago bothered to get Lightroom 3.5, and even then only because I managed to get it for free by a most unusual fluke (not bit torrent!). I only got the Nikon D5100 February of last year because B&H had it on special refurbished (and I had plenty at the time--tax refund again--to get a D7000 or even D800 if I had wanted to), and got the E-PM1 refurbished at Cameta. Other than when I got the Nikon 50mm 1.G in late 2011 after it had just been announced, I never buy something when it's just come out & selling for full price. In that vein, it occurred to me--if I get the E-PM2, I will have to get Lightroom 4 also, the E-PM2 RAW files probably won't work with LR 3.5. Thus, besides the fact that I haven't seen the E-PM2 show up for cheap yet & would thus have to spend the full $500 on one, I also was not liking the fact that I'd also have to spend $80 or so to upgrade Lightroom to 4. (Never mind that with that tax refund I could buy an Olympus OM-D/EM-5 and 12-50 and 45mm 1.8 and Panasonic 20mm 1.7 and still have like $6000 left over.) So a couple of days ago when I saw someone selling a Sony NEX-C3 with 18-55mm for $330, I thought--why not. That seemed like a good price to me. I'll still get the sensor upgrade I would've gotten had I bought the E-PM2, only I won't have to upgrade LR 3.5, and I can try out NEX and see what I think of it. I paid for it today, it arrives this Monday. I tend to shoot landscapes and portraits of my kids, sometimes other people's kids as well. Here are my questions: (1) I really liked the Olympus JPEG treatment, so much so that with landscapes I photographed last year with the E-PL1, I made 16x20 prints from the unedited JPEGs. I realize the Sony won't be the same. What settings are good for minimal post-processing if that's the idea? (I would still shoot RAW to have that file as well.) (2) I assume LR 3.5 has lens profiles for the 18-55mm barrel distortion? (I realize that had I gotten the F3 instead it corrected for lens distortion in-camera whereas the C3 doesn't.) (3) I was set to get an NEX to Nikon adapter but in looking at what the adapters for Canon FD look like, they look smaller. Is that the case? (Otherwise I'd be inclined to get a Nikon adapter to use my current legacy 50mm with it.) (4) What settings do I need to configure for using legacy lenses and focus peaking? (5) What are good settings for the soft buttons? I tend to change ISO shot-to-shot and also active AF point (or quick access to MF magnify if I'm using legacy glass) and would shoot mostly in aperture-priority mode. (6) How excellent is the 50mm Sony 1.8 OSS optically? How about the Sigma 19mm & 30mm? Yes, I have downloaded the owner's manual. I really look forward to the improvements I will experience with manual-focus (focus peaking) and wider dynamic range with landscapes. I will also be getting a CPL polarizer and spare batteries.
