Hy everybody, I have a Nex-3n since few years now, but I only have the basics lens the 16-50mm. Today I would like to get a  zoom lens something like 50-200mm or 50-300mm, but I'm don't know much thing in lenses and I don't know what to buy. Do you have any advices about the lenses compatible with the nex 3-n that have a good quality/price ratio ? Thank you.

Before anyone tells me off, I did try searching, honest. So if this has been asked and answered before, my sincere apologies. My Nex 3n and A3000 have a habit every now and then of taking a burst of shots. I have tried to imagine how this has occurred, so double check the settings - it's definitely set to 'single shot'. Did I press on the shutter a bit harder than usual? No, it isn't that. Has the camera decided that it needs to bracket the shots? I don't think so, since it was in Manual...

Hey everyone so I just noticed my Sony NEX-5T has a focusing noise issue (its noticable when its pretty quiet) when autofocusing it's more present with a high shutter speed or focus close on things on my kit lenses but on my SEL50F18 it's constant in video & before I take a photo with it. If any of you have a NEX 5R/5T please test it out! If mine is defective I will take it back for repair it's very annoying Thank you so much! (: It sounds like this I found a video on Youtube I wonder if it's...

I just bought the camera a few weeks ago coming from the NEX-3N. I'm using the Sigma 30 primarily for my casual indoor family / dog pictures. Even though it only goes down to f2.8 my light is USUALLY good enough to come out with decently good photos (no flash). I was curious if anyone uses the built in flash for small/medium sized rooms for indoor photos and if so what are your preferred settings for both the flash and manual controls in general. For example, should I turn the flash...

Hi All, I've had my Sony Nex 3N for half a year now and I really enjoy it. My current lenses are the kit lens Sony SELP1650 and the zoom lens SEL55210 I would like to add a fast prime lens for all around and lower light use, travel, walking etc so I've narrowed down to the Sony SEL35F18 for $450 vs. Zeiss Touit ZE3218TE for $499 Reading reviews, it seems that the Zeiss is sharper and overall better IQ, but it doesn't have OSS, has a louder focusing sound, and doesn't auto focus as well as the...

I have a Nex-3n which I am primarily using an array of vintage lenses with. I'd like to step up to a better model. I've been looking at the A6000 for it's wifi ability and it's ability to be used with an android phone for remote shutter release. Also the camera body of the Nex3n is uncomfortable to use with heavy vintage lenses. And I find the focus peaking difficult to use outdoors in bright light due to the lack of viewfinder. As far as photo quality, is there really any improvement between...

Hi, I'm having the hardest time making a decision here. I'm going to be traveling at the end of the month, and I want to bring the best camera/lens combination that I can. Here's what I have: Sony NEX5N (with firmware update to support the 1650 lens) Sony NEX3N SELP1650 power zoom lens SEL16F28 lens (16mm pancake lens) So, my question is which camera should I bring, and with which lens? I realize a lot of this is subjective, but I'm interested in opinions even if they are just based on...

Hi! I am a point-and-shoot user wanting to upgrade, preferably to a compact P&S or an ILC. As I am pretty much on a tight budget, I have narrowed down my choices to cameras that cost $300 and below. After much research, I've considered a Nikon J1 as an option. I know how this camera gets its fair share of love and hate (with its smaller sensor compared to competitors, among many other things) but as a casual snapper, I think that this camera will pretty much suit what I need. My camera's...

Just got the 35/1.8 lens and loved the images but puzzled why the (NEX-3n) body does not choose slower shutter speed with this lens while OSS is on. I tried switching OSS on and off and the camera chooses the exact same shutter speed and ISO based on my aperture. Say in A mode, I choose f/1.8 and ISO is auto and OSS is off and the camera chooses ISO=3200 and shutter=1/60s. That's fine, but then I switch on OSS and I expect the camera to choose a slower shutter so ISO can be lower (e.g....
