Re: New NEX (5T?)- does it have significantly faster AF?

Focus ability on the 5T is the same as the 5R. They only added GPS or NFC or something. 5Rs are a great deal now! I had one and liked it pretty well, but got fed up with how fiddly it was to use, and the direction Sony seemed to be going with the NEX line, and moved on to another system. I do miss my 5R, though, it was sooo small, and cute, and a lot of fun.

Are you aware of the new 'NEX-3 in an SLR body'? That is even cheaper than a 5R ($400 in the US), I think, and from what people have posted so far, the image quality and focus performance are as good as the NEX bodies, even the higher-end ones.
