Best NEX Camera for Action Sports
Oct 31, 2012

I am new to photography and am in the market for a new camera. I have been doing a lot of research and have decided on the NEX series of cameras. I like them because they seem high quality and I can carry them around easily. I haven't seen any posts regarding if NEX cameras are good for actions pics so your opinions would be much appreciated. I am leaning towards the NEX 6 or 5r. Would also like some recommendations for lenses. I like the new power zoom 16-50mm because it seems like I can bring the camera anywhere but I also think I may need to purchase a 55-210mm. How are the video capabilities for short clips as well. The specific action sport that I will be using the camera for is KITEBOARDING. Just for comparison I have been using a Sony a57 for my shots currently. Thank you in advance for the help.
