very nice photo! no need to buy c3 anymore.

Hehe, thanks! I actually have a NEX 7 on pre-order from Sony, but bought this on discount (no discount on the C3) with the 16mm lens. I do lens tests and wanted to test the 16mm, so this was a good way to get one and I get to try out my adapters for other lenses while waiting for the 7.

I do like this camera, my only complaint is it is tedious to change settings. I think it helps that is new to me. I haven't had a year to look at the photos and start wanting something better.

Your point is a good one, honestly a 10 year old APS-C sensor will still take plenty good pictures. Maybe not as good as the new cameras, but still plenty good. It is too easy to compare the new stuff and want to upgrade just because it is better. I do it all the time and know I shouldn't
