Re: Nex 3C or my trusty Canon s95

I don't know about the S95, but I have taken P&S (small sensor) cameras on trips, and they fail badly when light gets a bit dim, and in the daylight, they can have poor DR.  Having said that, I often had fine results, particularly for small prints.  But the Nex photos have a lot more real detail and quality, better in lower light, and more dynamic range (less problems with blown-out highlights, etc.).  Unfortunately, the Nex is not perfect, and in sufficiently low light, it will have problems too.  But I think the way to look at it is that it gives you more headroom.
