Greetings from San Francisco. I'm a recent mirrorless user (Oly E-PL2 and E-PL5), turned full-on convert after having just sold my Nikon D5100 and ordered a NEX-F3 w/kit lens from the Sony online store for $399 (roughly $50 less than what it is going for right now on Amazon and the other big camera shops). Incredible deal, IMO. Primary reason for unloading the Nikon in favor of the NEX is the 1.5 crop factor with the legacy lenses that I've currently adapted to my Oly bodies, plus Sony's legendary focus peaking (the Oly Key Line filter hack is good and useable under ideal lighting conditions, but not great and certainly not its intended use). Lack of IBIS, I believe, can be somewhat compensated for with the NEX's better high-ISO performance and AMB mode. I'm eager to find out for myself. Having played around with the NEX-F3 at my local Fry's Electronics beforehand, I immediately preferred its grip and ergonomics over my PEN cameras. I think that small form factor is great for devices that you don't hold and manipulate in your hand, but to breach the limit of comfort and useability in the process is designing small for the sake of being small. Anyway, should get my NEX in 5-7 business days. Can't wait to toss the kit lens in a drawer and slap on my Canon FD 24 2.8.
