Why I will NEVER buy a Sony camera again
15

I purchased an NEX-6 for a two-month cycling trip in Japan. After MUCH research, it seemed like a great travel camera (vs. lugging around my Canon 5D boat anchor). I received the kit (16-55 lens) and within one week the camera stopped working with a message, "could not recognize lens". I called Sony, they said in effect, "this shouldn't be happening (stating the obvious), it should be returned". So I did.

I received my replacement two days before leaving on my trip. A week later (almost the exact timing of the last camera) while in Japan, the SAME problem occured with the new camera. So, here I am, on a bike trip, carrying a dead camera around, that I couldn't exactly return.

So, I purchase a new camera (Olympus OMD-5) and shipped my dead one home so I could return it when I had all the stuff together that came in the box.

Two out if two. Sorry Sony, never again.
