    Sony NEX-6. Cheap feel, cheap look. Light 346g. Viewfinder has high
    rez but looks "off" for some reason things don't look sharp.
    Sony NEX-7. More solid than the NEX-6. Lots of machining. IMO,
    worth the extra money over the NEX-6.
    Canon M. Solid, like the old GF-1 from Panasonic. Great LCD.
    Unfortunately, no EVF and no provision for one. However, if Canon
    releases a good pancake, this APS is pocketable.
    Olympus OM-D/E-5M. Solid, good feel, once you get used to it.
    Benefits from a grip. Very good 120hz refresh viewfinder. Good LCD,
    except it only swings up or down, not out.
    Nikon 1 V2. Solid feeling. Not as bland-looking as the original.
    Good-looking EVF and LCD. Almost pocketable because of its smallish
    sensor. Kind of like the NEX cameras now.
    Panasonic GH3. Oddly light-feeling for a near DSLR sized camera. Not
    compact by any stretch. Great EVF, good LCD.
    Fuji X-Pro1. It looks well-built, but is very light-feeling. EVF/
    viewfinder is nice, too bad camera is so slow to focus. With this
    camera, you are buying the outstanding sensor.
