Re: Is prior DSLR ownership needed to appreciate a NEX?

no, but the higher up the nex line you go the more you will get out of having the knowledge of how to use the manual controls of the camera.

that is to say - the nex cameras work fine on P or intelligent auto or whatever, but the more manual control you use the more creativity you can impart to your work. this skill/knowledge is something people familiar with DSLRs should have more of than people coming to the nex from p&s cameras, but a basic knowledge of ISO/aperture/shutter speed isn't hard to teach yourself if you don't have it already.
