I am moving to a DSLR from my NEX3 in order to deal with indoor & outdoor sports shooting. The NEX3 with fast old pentax primes is fantastic but the need to open up the aperture indoors means that the lack of autofocus and tracking makes getting good shots very hit and miss. I just can't check the focus peaking, do the focusing, track the subject and time the exposure all at once reliably. So I am looking for a camera/lens combo that will autofocus quickly, track, has excellent low light...

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...

I just received my a6000. I have the 55-210mm from my NEX3. The instructions say I should update the lens firmware. But after checking Sony's support website, it is no clearer to me how exactly to do that. Can anyone help me?

Hi there! I am searching for an LCD hood for my sony NEX 3n I just bought. The reason I would like it is to provide the shade and additional mechanical protection for the screen. However, after checking ebay and amazon I could not find any product where it would be explicitely stated that it is for 3n. There are plenty of hoods for nex-3, nex-5, nex-5n and I also found 1 for nex 5r and 5t on Amazon. link:...

Thinking of replacing my kit zoom (old NEX-3 with 18-55) with primes to get sharper photos. (Would love to upgrade the NEX body but can't really afford to) Leaning toward  Sigma 19, 30, 60. The Sigmas rate sharper than Sony in DxO Mark,  and are far less expensive, as comparable Sony lenses BUT - looks like the Sigmas have no optical stabilization. I usually don't carry a tripod - should I be concerned?  (I wonder in landscapes how dawn/dusk will work with no stabilization, also the...

I'm unable to know if the x2.8 LCD Viewfinder V4 3:2 Widescreen 3 inch Taking Video for Sony NEX3 NEX5 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/130748194118?_trksid=p2048036 ) would fit OK in my SONY A 3000, I think its dimensions would fit in the back screen, but does anybody know if the bottom screw adapter is in the right position, or, in other words, is the bottom screw in the same position relative to the screen, in the NEX series and in the a 3000? Tnx in advance --Salvador...

Alright. I have the NEX-3 and while I do enjoy the camera very much I just can't live without a viewfinder. Not to mention the AF is atrocious compared to phase detect AF. So anyway, I'm planning on getting an a6000. However, I'm not happy with lens options. I have an a700 as well and the KM 28-75 f/2.8 lives on it. I want a 2.8 zoom for E-mount as well, but it just doesn't seem to exist. So. I did get the 16 f/2.8 with my NEX-3. Keeping that. I'd like to supplement it with something in the...

I recently bought the 5R and installed firmware v. 1.02 immediately. I wanted to get the most out of the camera so I purchased a Camera Guide by David Busch covering the NEX-3 and the NEX-5. The firmware update he mentions in the guide is version 3 which should add a 3D Panorama facility to the Shooting Mode wheel. I found an update file (NEX-5V3_Update1010a.exe) which I downloaded, thinking this was the one he mentioned. However, the update process didn't succeed. I can only guess that it...
