Summary: I have a Canon Rebel XSi that I have had for 3 years that I have taken many great pictures with while traveling. But like many people who I think end up trying the Nex series, the Rebel along with it's lenses are very bulky and cumbersome to carry while traveling. So I tried the NEX-3 hoping I would get pretty much the same picture results with a much smaller and lighter footprint. WRONG. All the photos I took with the NEX came out "soft" around the edges of everything.
Summary: This could have been a very positive review, except for one very significant issue. I bought the NEX-3 after months of reading and researching. I chose it over Panasonic based on its sensor size, unique features, form factor, weight and several very favorable reviews in professional newsletters. I think the firmware upgrade in the Fall made the user interface and navigation much better and easier, and I have not experienced the battery issues that some have reported.

Brand new cameras don't have the time set already and watching original setups on this camera on You Tube proved that. I also was suspicious when my new SD card pictures started with the number 200.
Summary: Hi - habe die NEX jetzt 4 Tage getestet. Hauptsächlich fotografiere ich Landschaften und Portraits. Hier eine schnelle Zusammenfassung meiner wichtigsten Eindrücke: Positiv: - sehr geringes Farbrauschen dank großem Bildwandler auch noch bei iso 1600 - extrem kompakter und leichter Body - hervorragende Displayauflösung mit guter Erkennbarkeit auch bei Sonnenlicht - gute Kippfunktion des Displays (allerdings nur nach oben und unten) - unglaubliche Videoqualität - gute...
