Re: Which to Buy Nex F3 vs Nex 5N

I have a 5N, and have not seen an F3 yet in the stores. However, I don't see anything that would entice me to buy an F3 over a 5N, even with the $100 lower price (with kit zoom). The F3 seems larger and heavier, body style not as elegant as the 5N, the LCD does not angle down for overhead shooting. The F3 built in flash is OK, but I keep the accessory flash on the 5N most of the time for fill in flash so that is not a problem (bought an inexpensive "leather" case that covers entire camera, kit lens and attached flash as well). And with the large sensor you actually don't need the flash that often, even in a dimly lighted restaurant or home. Finally, right now you can get a good deal on a 5N bundle (camera, kit zoom, 55-210 zoom and memory card).
