kelownadon: Hi. My first post. Hopefully I get it right. I just bought the Sony Nex- F3 and am wondering whether I should return it and wait to buy the 3N in a month or so. I have two questions. First is the new lens as good as the previous. It looks to me like the new lens will only be available on the 3 series and not the 5 series and above. Is this true? Secondly how much of an issue will the lower resoultion on the screen of the 3N be to me? Thanks for any input that I may get.
The 3N has a better sensor than the F3.(I just confirmed with Sony by phone).
It has the same sensor and processor as in the Nex-5R.
According to DxO, "On a technical level, the NEX-5R’s 16Mpix CMOS sensor has evolved by integrating phase detectors that allow the camera’s autofocus to function like that of a DSLR, thus improving subject tracking."
That was not available on the F3, and the new sensor beats out the sensor in the F3:
