I'll add my 2-cents to the reviews here

M. Zanetti, Amazon
9 August 2012
  • Summary: Battery life on the Nex-3 (with current software update) is adequate. I feel like I could do a day of shooting on one battery. Comparing this camera to my Canon G11 and its a close call.

A fine camera, needlessly disabled by one component.

David Barrett, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: I am a handicapped man whose balance is almost nonexistent, and whose hands have a pretty bad tremor, but even I can take wonderful shots with this, and when I loaned the camera to my able-bodied friend the results were truly painterly.

Sony

  • Summary: I really wanted to love this camera, but instead I just like it. It takes really nice pics, but I am really unsatisfied w/ the zoom. I bought another interchangeable lens and was not happy w/ the zoom at all.

Wait for the NEX-C3

aerternum8, Amazon
22 April 2011
  • Summary: I'd say you should wait for this to drop in price because Sony JUST discontinued the NEX3, and has moved on to selling the NEX-C3. Slightly better specs and usability for the same price.

16mm kit bad for point-and-shooters

J. Bowman "Bookworm", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera with both lenses, this review emphasizes the performance of the 16mm kit lens. (See the other kit for the opposite emphasis.) I had no preconceptions and bought it on a whim, amazed by its size. It's easy to hold, but also easy to cover the AF lamp.

NEX-3 is a huge disappointment. Try it, you'll return it!

pluto1999 "pluto1999", Amazon
10 October 2010
  • Summary: There has been considerable excitement about the prospect of an APS-C size sensor in a point-and-shoot format body, and rightly so. The best of the APS cameras, such as the mid-range Canon and Nikon SLRs, take great photos.

Good image but with faults

Sambucka, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: The pancake lens it comes with is only suitable for landscape photography. You have to be in someone's face to take a portrait photo, so it's not a versatile lens like 20mm pancake on GF1 or 30mm on NX10.

Solid performer but short battery life

S. Yang "New Amazonian", Amazon
11 July 2010
  • Summary: I have been playing with the camera since June 25. The camera has excellent low light performance. Very low noise in general. I compared it side by side with my Canon T1i and found that in may cases, Nex-3 produces better quality of pictures. Auto focus in video mode is quick.
