Hi All, I've had my Sony Nex 3N for half a year now and I really enjoy it. My current lenses are the kit lens Sony SELP1650 and the zoom lens SEL55210 I would like to add a fast prime lens for all around and lower light use, travel, walking etc so I've narrowed down to the Sony SEL35F18 for $450 vs. Zeiss Touit ZE3218TE for $499 Reading reviews, it seems that the Zeiss is sharper and overall better IQ, but it doesn't have OSS, has a louder focusing sound, and doesn't auto focus as well as the...

I have a Nex-3n which I am primarily using an array of vintage lenses with. I'd like to step up to a better model. I've been looking at the A6000 for it's wifi ability and it's ability to be used with an android phone for remote shutter release. Also the camera body of the Nex3n is uncomfortable to use with heavy vintage lenses. And I find the focus peaking difficult to use outdoors in bright light due to the lack of viewfinder. As far as photo quality, is there really any improvement between...

Hi, I'm having the hardest time making a decision here. I'm going to be traveling at the end of the month, and I want to bring the best camera/lens combination that I can. Here's what I have: Sony NEX5N (with firmware update to support the 1650 lens) Sony NEX3N SELP1650 power zoom lens SEL16F28 lens (16mm pancake lens) So, my question is which camera should I bring, and with which lens? I realize a lot of this is subjective, but I'm interested in opinions even if they are just based on...

Hi! I am a point-and-shoot user wanting to upgrade, preferably to a compact P&S or an ILC. As I am pretty much on a tight budget, I have narrowed down my choices to cameras that cost $300 and below. After much research, I've considered a Nikon J1 as an option. I know how this camera gets its fair share of love and hate (with its smaller sensor compared to competitors, among many other things) but as a casual snapper, I think that this camera will pretty much suit what I need. My camera's...

Just got the 35/1.8 lens and loved the images but puzzled why the (NEX-3n) body does not choose slower shutter speed with this lens while OSS is on. I tried switching OSS on and off and the camera chooses the exact same shutter speed and ISO based on my aperture. Say in A mode, I choose f/1.8 and ISO is auto and OSS is off and the camera chooses ISO=3200 and shutter=1/60s. That's fine, but then I switch on OSS and I expect the camera to choose a slower shutter so ISO can be lower (e.g....

Hey, I have a budget of about 350$ to 550$ to buy new lenses, and i'd like to hear some recommendations. Currently I have the following lenses: SEL1650PZ :I especially like this lens a lot for traveling because, it is very small / light / portable. I find I use a broad range of focal length when traveling, so this lens as a decently versatile focal length, sometimes I wish it could go a bit further like 60mm - 70mm, but I wouldn't sacrifice the wide angle for that. It's great in daylight...

I'm really stuck here.  I've researched both heavily but I can't seem to make a solid decision. I will be taking video shots (not landscape, but shots that only include from the belly button up, and semi-macro pans of products). In retrospect, the camera most likely won't be more than 4 feet away from anything while shooting. Both are within $20 of each other so price is not of issue right now. The Alpha a3000 SEEMS to have better quality based on the videos of it I've seen, but there is...

Hi! Can you please help me with clarification of the NEX-3N lens size specification. Currently I use original 40.5mm wide lens (or this relates to filter size?), can I use 49mm or 52mm lenses on NEX-3N?  Where can I find info about NEX 3N lens sizes, compatibility and is it required to use ring adapter? My assumption is that picture quality will be better if lens filter size is larger...? Would it make sense if I invest in "Mount Adapter Ring For Tamron Screw Lens to Sony NEX Camera NEX-3" on...

Hi All - I have a NEX 3N, a vintage Vivitar 80-200mm Macro Focusing Zoom lens with a Fotga adapter and an inexpensive tripod. I tried taking shots of the moon on (what I thought was) a clear night from my balcony in East London (I know, not ideal). As a novice, I think I might be overreaching my abilities :-D I thought I had followed the right 'rules' - manual mode, ISO 200, manually set lens focus to infinity mark, manually set lens aperture to f16, exposure to 1/250s. I tried taking shots...
