I would and did take the Sony.
They both are very good with several important differences some based in the different chip technologies employeed and others based on the resolution of the panels and on the quality of the lenses.
The Sony can project 4K now, the Lumis never will be able to.
The Sony for whatever collection of reasons in my black pit room and Snowmat screen just presents a more realistic picture to my eyes. The Sony is a lot cheaper too both at MSRP and at street.
If I was given a Lumis, i would be happy and wouldn't buy a Sony and visa versa. Once 4K content becomes readily available, and I expect it will shortly through Odemax but not for the biggie movies, i would rush out. but not today. Both are great 2D 1080p machines but I still prefer the Sony.
