Well I did it! I bought a NEX!

Having a Sony SLR for years. First with the a100, Then to the a200 and now the a65. Thought about selling the a65 but decided to keep it.

I picked up a used NEX-3a body kit cheap on eBay $184 in black. Looks like new. Bought a Pentax m42 adapter for $8 bucks shipped (I have a few m42 lenses already). It already has the latest update installed. All this just to see if I would like the NEX cameras.

So far I like it, But I can not see the LCD on the 3a in bright sunlight.

I've only done a few test shots. Don't know if the image numbering can be reset, But I'm on picture 113.

Here's one I shot through my windshield of my car today. I only adjusted the contrast to compensated for the windshield glare and re-sized it. No sharpening to the photo.

Sony Alpha NEX-3, Pentax Super-Takumar 1:2/55
1/250s f/11 at 55mm iso200

So far I like it, So I think I might have save up for the NEX-7.
