D800. Just got Sony NEX 5n recently and has been kicking myself ever since for not getting it earlier. U get a brilliant sensor the same
That $1200 d7000 has for $649. It's crazy. The low ligjt
High ISo
Actually seems
Better than d7000 and DXO mark
Agrees. I am astounded by iso3200 in PASM and iso6400 in twilight mode. M4/3 and my last one was 16mp g3 was not even
In same league in dynamic range and low light. 10fps and 4fps modes are excellent. AF after firmware 1.01 update this march is superb and focuses in low light for me no problem. And I am using the slow kit 18-55 lens and I could care less because low light pic are that good. Only full frame is better. It kills my canon 7d in low light. Now
My Nikon d800 is better but it cost five times as much and is a large camera

twilight mode is overrate in my opinion
only use it in extreme low light otherwise why bother
but than the slow shutter with 6 pics together would really kill sharpness although at low noise
but i would rather my pic be noisy but sharp

anyone else ageree?

still can't understand the logic of a 3 that is just $100 cheaper than 5

$100 is too insignificant an amount for two product line

just the touch screen for focus alone is worth more than $100 let alone other enhancement

Really anxious what will they offer in F5 to justify the extra $100

NEX 7 24MP sensor, is that too much to ask?

Jefftan: F3 it is so similar to 5N now, even appearance is about the same.

Now no reason to buy 5N just battery life increase to 470 in F3. $600 is a good price

What will the rumor F5 (5N successor) be? Got NEX 7 sensor?

yes there is auto iso 3200 now in F3
no touchscreen
2.5 or 5.5 fps (a lot slower than 5N)

Is that 225 gram including battery correct?
It maybe without battery

Sorry if what i say offend people but spending $600 on a small sensor camera is not smart
My $700 nex-5n is a perfect camera and i am sure the $600 nex-c3 is worth every penny
Support good company which provide great product at reasonable price

FUJI camera is always overpriced
They are just cheating on rich people but have the negative effect of raising price level in the whole industry

Not that i cannot afford x-pro1 but i would buy a nex-7 if i buy another camera today
We as photographer have responsibility to support good company for the benefit of all

Will there be a water-proof MFT camera body from Olympus
if so I will definitely buy it

Direct link | Posted on Dec 16, 2011 at 03:21 UTC as 21st comment

late last year Sept 2010 I recommend my non-photographer friend to buy a Panasonic LX5 when NEX is still in first generation and unproven

Now ask me for recommendation, I would suggest NEX for her.

Almost the same weight with 16mm fix lens an small digital zooming may produce picture that is not worse than LX5

IQ will be way higher than LX5 can ever be especially in low light. She often complain she can't take photo in an aquarium for example.

With NEX no problem

no matter what others say. I still believe mirrorless are the future.

A compact user for 5 years, I will buy a NEX-5N.

DSLR? Are you joking? I don't need weight lifting exercise

All serious compact upgraders or DSLR downgraders if you can call that will all rush to mirrorless

The best trade off for IQ and size. Prices is coming down too. $500 E-PM1 is a hint for future price point of mirrorless

If I can wait 2 years, NEX will fall to $500 or even lower

Compact and DSLR even if survive would be a minority compare with mirrorless

This will happen in the next 5 years in my prediction

Why should I buy this small sensor camera when the Olympus E-PM1 cost $500

$100 more for a small sensor camera?

Anyone tell me why?

I mention again that it works
The biggest advantage is if after a trip I have 5000 photos and 20G ,I wouldn't have time to back up on 5 DVD

Now each JPEG become less than 1 MB and I can fit almost 5000 pics on 1 DVD

I won't worry about hard drive failure any more

I would happily paid $50 if it is available as a program

no it is no fake
it works

only 18% of original size but indistinguishable 100% crop

After compression I can back up lots of picture in DVD, now all in hard drive and worry about hard drive failure

I would buy the program if it is available

amazing technology.

"AW100 helps to create blur free images with the use of Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR) to minimize camera shake "

This mean no optical image stabilization? $380 just cracy

same price as well established and very good Panasonic TS3

Bring nothing new to the table F3.9 vs TS3 F3.3 and not cheap. Not small too TX10 is less than 150g

Nikon is not really trying to be competitive.
