DCRP Review: Sony Alpha NEX-F3
By: Jeff Keller, Digital Camera Resource Page (Jul 18, 2012)

If you're looking for a low-priced interchangeable lens camera, then the Sony Alpha NEX-F3 should certainly be on your list. It has great photo quality, a complete set of features, and snappy performance. The only thing I'd recommend is trying one out in person before you buy, as the user interface leaves much to be desired. If it doesn't bother you, then you'll definitely get your $600 worth...
