Definitely Sony Nex-7. Also IIRC, Sony is the only one using a DSLR sensor for their compact "DSLR"

External controls & Lens variety > EP3, GX1, OM-D EM5
Bigger Sensor & Consumer friendly cam > Sony Nex 5 & 7 series

Samsung is the only other company making mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors.

I've had my NX10 for 2 years now and I can say that they are better value for money than Sony. Also the lenses are superior.

No budget? Leica M9P Hermes edition with 3 lens. Full frame, compact, comes with all the necessary lens coverage and a nice carry bag with matching neck strap.

I bought Nikon 1 V1! With both 10-30mm and 30-110mm lenses. Still figuring out how to use... Where can I learn how to use the camera effectively?
