Re: How "portable" is the NEX3/5 Cameras?

I would love to get into this line of mirrorless cameras. However, I am not a big fan of lugging a pack around with me just to keep a camera in it. I have not seen these cameras in person, and was wondering, how "portable" these are? That is, can I comfortably keep the camera in one pocket and the lens in the other without any issues?

Also, it says the minimum operating temperature is 0C. How accurate is that? I enjoy skiiing and it gets colder than 0C, would this camera be totally useless at anything below that temperature?

They are not really pants pocketable, though I have stored my 7 in one pocket of my denim pants and a M39 50/1.8 + the adapter in the other so I didn't have to Carry a bag, a hoody is perfect for shooting with the NEX.
