Re: C3 & 5n will serve me well for at least another year or 2.

I agree with you. This year so called new model are actually the same (same sensor and same kit lens)

The smartest way to upgrade is to wait about 3 years (so for NEX from 2011 last year to 2015) for a generation leap in sensor technology. In the mean time use your money on lens.

in 3 years you will get real generation leap in sensor. I am looking forward to usable ISO 6400, won't happen before 2015 I guess

I also don't like the added bulk of a built in pop up flash--plus the F3 isn't nearly as "cute" as the C3 imo. If the F3 is any indication of where Sony is going with their smallest Nex cameras, I'll just hang on to my tiny 5n and C3.

I'll wait until a huge sensor improvement comes along...2 years from now best guess. I like what Olympus is doing with their OMD...if i had to use a larger body.
