Re: Should I buy a NEX?

I got an F3 used for rather cheap as a travel backup to my DSLR and within a month ended up selling the DSLR. While it still had some advantages like a faster autofocus and availability of great fast standard range zooms, I just could not bring myself to take it with me anywhere after getting a Nex.

I ended up ordering EVF from Amazon for $230, supposed to be here next week. If I started from scratch as opposed to buying a used camera on the whim, I would most likely still have ended with F3 + EVF as opposed to 6. It's still cheaper, with same IQ, so the question is do you want to pay an extra $300 for composite PDAF , hot shoe, mode dial and ISO100. Either way it's a good choice.
