Excerpt: My first NEX, and am very pleased with it so far. Found the menus a little confusingly laid out at first, so there's a learning curve here - Not fuji-levels of obscure, but a different mind-set was used...maybe a little too dumbed down? Hard to describe. Anyhoo there's definitely a learning curve involved, but once you get their way of thinking, everything's fine.
Summary: [[ASIN:B003MPOLX2 Sony Alpha NEX-3 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera w/18-55mm Lens (Black)-14. 2 Mpix]] Fantastic camera along with prompt delivery. One flaw-3 weeks after receiving the camera I had to send it to Sony to repair due to the lamination on the screen on the back of the camera. It started to delaminate slowly and then rapidly deteriorated. Sony is great to work with and I should have it back within a week or so. Sony DOES back their products.
Perfect for compact camera users who want to upgrade

Excerpt: If you want a very small, high res camera with high quality images - you want this camera. This camera is HD video capable and it has a full user guide built in to the camera. It is small and light enough to take with you everywhere.
Summary: The camera takes great pictures, however the lens that you think will really zoom in is average. I'm hoping the other options for lens' are better. I haven't even used the flash yet so don't know about that.
