In the same boat - Leaning towards NEX3N / D5200 solution

I'd like a decent video and travel cam as well as camera that can do action/sports, etc.  I was considering the RX100 / D5200 combo, but it's a little too much.  Then I see the 3N for $200 cheaper (if you find a deal) and if I can get the 3N for $350 (just missed the Adorama deal of $329 the other day), well I can also afford the D5200.

So yes, I give up the EVF, 60p video, and PDAF, but I have the D5200 for when I need great AF and I think I can live with the 30P video the 3n produces.

I still might just get the NEX6 and be done with it, but I'm seriously considering the 3N / D5200 instead....
