I recently lost my NEX F3 when my bike's pannier bag fell off my my bike's rack. The NEX had my Sigma 30mm Lens on it at the time, so that was lost as well; I still have the 18-55mm kit lens. I notice that newer NEX models have a different kit lens. If I buy a body-only NEX (probably NEX 3 or 5), will my old kit lens be compatible?

Greetings All, I just purchased my NEX-f3 with the 18-55mm lens last month and have jumped right in getting lots of shots. I'd like to explore other lenses especially for landscape shots and also would like to know what tripods you would recommend for a newbie like me. Thanks in advance for any help! Cheers, Nick
Hi how can I use off-camera flash and multiple remote flashguns on my Sony NEX-F3? I only use its built-in flash for now, I'm not sure what to buy and what is compatible. --Nobody has the right to not be photographed or prevent the publication of their image, edited or original, whether they're in the street or in private places where photography is not prohibited.
I'm getting to grips with my new (bought 2nd-hand) NEX-F3. I'd like to be able to review my photos in Apple's Aperture software and compare the results of various settings. However, it seems that Aperture doesn't display various types of information - like whether in-camera HDR or DRO was set and at which value, or if a photo was shot using a Creative Style etc. Is there a way to get this information so I can learn more about which settings I prefer? The only other way seems to be to use the...

Hi there, I've been trawling the forums and review websites for a few months now (ridiculous I know), trying to decide on the best camera to take travelling for 2 years to Asia with me. I'd like to spend under $1000 and the most important qualities in a camera for my particular situation are image quality, low light performance, enough zoom or cropping ability for far away objects, quick AF for wildlife shots and bokeh capabilities. So far, I'm considering: Panasonic Lumix FZ200 $450...
Help! :-) In an hour or so I'm doing a short promo video with my NEX-F3 (APS-C mirrorless) at a wine-tasting event. I'm a video nO0b, but it's for a friend, quite casual, and not a once-off do-or-die situation. If I mess up I can just try again at the next event. Is this set-up and guide below suitable for this type of situation and event? Any other tips from experienced video shooters? Specifically - given that the camera produces (barely) usable ISO1600 stills, should I under-expose...
I've been reading through a few threads on this but couldn't see an obvious answer to this (does such a thing exist!?)... On my NEX-F3 I often use focus peaking and MF assist (auto magnification when you touch the focus ring when on manual focus. The problem is that MF assist is only useful in certain situations. If the subject is moving or not centered, for example, MF assist can actually make it impossible to compose a shot. What I'd love is the ability to toggle it on/off without having...
