Thanks for the info guys! I am going for the nex 5 because its light and i love the way it grips! With the nex 3 i feel like im going to drop the thing! I just hope they dont realese an nex 5 replacement in the next few months

congrats on your choice! the nex5 sure is a heckuva tool for takin' pics. don't worry about the replacement from sony. it will come, think c3+improved.video=c5, sub nex7 (rumored to have viewfinder and 24Mpx). the question here is whether -for the time being- 14Mpx is enough...

remember: "12 is all everyone really needs" paraphrasing olympus but the nex5 already tops that and more. the 16Mpx sure is compelling but for the price and availability the current models make the more sense.

btw, the big feature with firmware 4 was peaking, that's what's making these babies into more interesting little runts to play with manual glass of all mounts and sizes. well, almost anyway

cheery-o and happy shooting!
