    What do you plan on using the camera for, and what's your budget? Why do you want mirror less

    I picked up an Olympus EPL1 new-in-the-box for $140, use it with legacy lenses with adapters from Ebay. Prices on the older models -like 2 years old- drop fast. Cameta Camera has a lot of close-outs, worth checking. If you want to use legacy lenses, "Crop Factor" is important.

    The Nikon uses a relatively small sensor. You can pick up cheaper "C-Mount" lenses for it. which will not cover the frame of a Nex or micro-43, but will cover the Nikon. Yiu can get some interesting lenses, like a 12mm F1.4 for cheap.
