Never buy a new camera, let someone else take the depreciation hit!

I would disagree strongly with you there .. never buy a used complex camera without iron clad  warranty is what I would say now everything is disposable and electronic .. something goes wrong with your secondhand nex and it will cost you more than you probably paid for it to repair

The other issue of course is that wtih these fragile modern electronic cameras which are very sensitive to rough handling and environment (eg damp/rain) .. you dont know how its been treated .. i'd rather buy it new and know my careful ownership will likely make it last without fault.
