I haven't gotten a camera yet but good news! I can extend my budget! I need help once more. I've actually been looking at NEX-5N on top of the T3i I mentioned before. I did notice NEX-5N videos on YouTube showed the lack of video stabilization (big downer if i use it handheld) but everything else I loved. I would be happy with T3i too since my sister already has lens for her canon. I am picking NEX-5N but won't buy until tonight. Can someone please comment or recommend another model? I like to do research before I do big buys.
