A NEX body with a LA-EA2 A-Mount lens adapter is bigger, heavier, and more expensive than an SLT body, and it's not stabilized.

It really comes down to need, the dslr size camera are great and has a ton of cheap lenses. But compare to the ilc camera like the pen they are huge. And having 24-28mm in ff eq is much better for indoor shooting. And to get the 24mm range on apsc you need to be down at 15mm, and there is not to many dslr prime that wide. None of the primes you select address the indoor shooting need in low light.

With m4/3 you have the 12 f2 and it does the job for the 24mm range, the 14 2.5 for 28mm range and the the 17 2.8 and 17 1.8 in the 34mm range, the 20 1.7 for 40mm. All these are much better ranges for low light indoors.

Need determines whether it is cheap or expensive.
The lenses you say are what makes m4/3 cameras attractive don't perform very well, which is also my point. I thought I made that clear.

But there is not to many options in those ranges for an aps-c dslr. That is my point.
