Looking For A Replacement For A Sony NEX-3
Jun 15, 2014

Hi. I have been using a NEX-3 at work for the past year, but it got stolen. I was hoping to get advice on a suitable replacement.

I take anywhere from 300-1000 pictures a day of houses, inside and out. I don't have much control over the lighting conditions so many of the shots are backlit, low light, etc...

I liked the NEX because you could use it one-handed, it had a great battery (1100 pictures), and a good flash recharge speed. It performed well in low light conditions, not so well with high contrast and back lighting.

I did not really care for the AF at all. It refused to AF on a door key in the lock (trying to capture the key number) or anything shiny really. The AF did not seem particularly fast to me either. A better zoom would be welcome, but I could live with the same.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
