Dear mgerpe,

as honorable as getting your dad an up-to-date NEX in place of his (D)SLR, please be aware that these new "modern NEX" cameras are essentially a computer with a difficult/coplicated and demanding interface, let alone a new language/lingo for their dozen upon dozens functions that - to use them for ultimate best results - will also require digital processing, a raw converter, managing/understanding the whole digital process and its software etc, etc. And that will take months to learn and do adequately.

Is your dad ready to spend time and time again on a computer, with a camera, learning how to set around 100 settings and why and what for ...

Of course there is always out-of-camera jpeg ... Just a thought..

So please try to feel him out or confer with the old man before hitting him with a new brick wall over the holidays ... He might still enjoy his film days ...
